My first post. I started training the middle of January and originally it was just a few km on the treadmill and some core training. This has now progressed to 5k on the treadmill, 10k on the bike and 3k on the arm bike (3 times per week) to try to replicate the deamds of a chairty event I am participating in at the end of May. All is well when I run at the gym and to now I have now done three 6 mile runs outdoor (road). My first run was 1hr 24 secs, second was 56min 16 secs and third was 53 mins 53 secs. I feel fine when I am running but about an hour after I finish I have painful hips on either side which lasts for around two days. This prevents me doing any further running in this time. I do not get this from running on the treadmill although I appreciate that I am only running for around 25 mins and this 'surface' is more forgiving than the road. I bought my running shoes from an excellent shop where they recorded my run on a treadmill before making a recommendation and the shoes themselves appear very comfortable and supportive. I was measured as a neutral runner.
I have never had problems with my hips throughout playing football for over 30 years. Is it usual to have these issues when starting road running? If not is there something that I can do to prevent this or alleviate the pain after the run?
Any advice from experienced runners would be very much appreciated.
