I'm currently training for the London Marathon (my first marathon) and about three weeks ago began getting some hip discomfort in my right hip when I got up to 13 miles in a training run. Since then I have had it regularly when running and a couple of times it has turned into a dull ache the following days and caused me to limp ever so slighty when walking, but then it disappears very quickly and the process will start over when I start running again.
Also, I have had a sharp shooting pain in my lower right leg that has been accompanying it (No idea if these are linked?) when running. My hip does not hurt when I touch it and it is not persistant, only when I start running and up my mileage, then it will linger around for 24+ hours before going.
This is not ideal as I need to be looking forward to a 16 mile run this weekend, but I don't think that is a good idea with this discomfort at the moment. I really want to get back on track.
How should I combat this? Rest and hip exercises?
