After a cracking weekend, and a fantastic ride on Saturday to celebrate my son’s 21st birthday (with lots of attacking and no hip pain whatsoever) -(https://www.strava.com/activities/923111252/embed/a5aad4e32e1529c9076d317a996e7b63cd86a7c4) – tonight was all about a trial run test my hip.
I am sorry to say it was not great. After a 5 minute warm-up (which is included in the strava profile), I gently started running- and it hurt straight away.
It was nice to be running again after nearly 3 weeks, and I am pleased to say that I am noticeably stronger in my stance, with little scuffing of my foot. I kept going, and the pain never got any worse- nor did it get any better. After 30 minutes I cooled down (again, included in the strava).
Back to the Physio tomorrow night, for a decision. But right now, it is not looking good for a run around London in 3 weeks time. (Cue sad music and montage of me running for the last few months, with perhaps some puppies in the back ground).
