I've only been running a couple of weeks, but I've started having problems with my hip. When I was young, I was diagnosed with Perthes disease in my right hip. It was caught very early, and happened when I was very young. This eventually sorted itself out and I've had basically no trouble from it for many years. Info on Perthes
But on a mellow run last night, I started getting pain in the joint of my bad hip. I was only a mile from finishing my run, so just pushed on through. When I got home, I popped an ibuprofen, had a nice stretch and a shower and was fine.
The roads I was running on weren't the best, kind of uneven and crap. I do own a good pair of trainers which I got from a proper running shop after they'd done gait analysis on me (turns out I'm a bad over pronator). I don't stretch BEFORE run, just take it slow for the first 10mins or so and do a good stretch after my run. As I said, the run wasn't stupid quick. 8:30mins/mile, which for me is good but not exactly killing myself.
So, has anyone got any advice on dealing with hip pain/injuries? And if anyone else has had Perthes and has advice that'd be epic.
EDIT: I'm 18 now btw, and I've been running round about 4-5 miles every other day for the past couple of weeks, following a training schedule I found on t'internet.
