Recently upped my running from 6-8 miles per week to 15-20 miles per week over a period of 8 weeks and a couple of weeks ago noticed stiffness and soreness in my left hip the morning after a run (6-7miles). It eased off in a day or so and I continued running however found the pain coming on during and immediately after runs and becoming more severe. I googled and read up on the symptoms and it apppears I may have a bout of hip bursitis. I've been applying anti-inflammatory gel and reduced my running down from 3 times to twice a week initially and then last week had a full weeks rest before running again tonight. The weeks rest appeared to have done the trick before tonights run and I had not been experiencing any discomfort however about 2 miles into tonights run the pain was back and as severe or even more severe than ever.
This is proving to be a real pain as I really want to continue my running and resting for a whole week seemed bad enough. Think I'm going to see my doctor but wondered whether anyone else has had this problem and can offer some advice.
