Runs Are Not Going Well

Hello everybody!

Went on my second run this week. First run was on Saturday on April 5th and ran 10.73km at a 4.56min/km pace. Felt decent but, alot of hip pain which was really restricting my gate and cadence. It has definitely been tough to keep running with the hip pain I have been having. I am just trying to go at it day by day. I am still doing the exercises that were advised by my physiotherapist. The area is still very stiff. I have been using a foam roller and a hard ball to roll out the tight areas. After Saturday the weather was so nice that I had to go on another little run. So today we went for a 5.26km run at a 5.28min/km pace. Alot of pain but i just ended up really slowing the pace down. I might try to refrain from runs back to back just to give my hip some more time to recover.

Hopefully things get better and I will be able to go for a physio session. Really missing it right now and realizing how lucky I am to be able to see someone. I will definitely continue running(alone) and I hope you all are to. Just remember to be safe and continue to practice social distancing.

Stay happy, Stay healthy and keep breathing
