I have had hip problems for over a year (pain on the outside and in the front of the hip when running and after running) and was diagnosed with "snapping hip syndrome" in December 2012.
The diagnosis was that "if it hurts, don't do it" but that I wasn't harming anything long-term and that running was ok if comfortable.
I decided to keep training for my May 2013 marathon though after my 12m on Monday I can barely walk. Some runs hurt this much, some not at all.
What would you do? I love running and would really like to do my marathon. I'm very determined and used to getting over injuries but this is killing my motivation and actually makes me "scared" to go running in case things hurt.
Has anyone had this problem, or got any ideas for running alternative or ways to cope?
