Out on a gentle 3 mile run this am I felt what I thought was my underwear elastic catching. I then figured out to my horror that it was a muscle running over the front of my right hip- just down from where my pelvis jutts out. It wasn't that sore but the sensation wasn't healthy. It seemed to happen at the point that my foot was swinging backwards behind my body. The ground was flat. It subsided and the final hill before home didn't have any ill effect. Its now a bit uncomfortable having rested for a couple for hours.
I'd had my first pilates class 3 days ago which went okay and highlighted what I knew that my right hip was weaker than the left and thought that pilates was a sensible option. I've also been swimming 3 times a week for over a month now. Yesterday I went swimming to help the ab and back soreness from the pilates and was trying to kick more from the hips than the knee. Todays run was the first in a month due to bad weather/ bad brain. But it was at a sensible pace and my leg muscles are feeling good and strong from gym work .
I'd go straight to a physio but can't afford as I'm on ESA for madness. I'll obviously tell the pilates instructor about it but should I just carry on with the swimming and light jogging to build up the hip muscles, rest completely or somewhere in the middle?
