I’ve spoken with my chiropractor and have had three sessions at this point. My back is in really good shape and my hips are in good shape as well. There’s one spot on my upper back that needs some work but that isn’t related to my hip issues. Go figure!
I still really don’t know what’s wrong with my right hip. Last week while I was out walking, I ran about a mile back home. Nothing too hard, I took things really nice and easy.
My hip hurt a great deal after that run. By that point it had been three weeks since I ran.
Three weeks with no running.
And then a mile run put me in pain.
I am not a happy camper right now.
I think it’s time to go to my sports doc and get his take on the situation. If I can’t even run a mile without being in pain the rest of the day, clearly this is a problem.
In the meantime I’ve been walking around the neighborhood, around 2.5 miles. Not very far because walking takes a long time! This distance walking takes me close to 40 minutes so going any further in the mornings isn’t really happening. I’ve also been doing a few weight sessions during the week as well.
Depending on how the hip progresses, I might have to start considering gym membership options to try and get some other types of workouts in.
