I have an ongoing weakness in the muscles around my hip involved in stabilisation, on my right side. After middling distances it begins to get very painful deep inside teh hip joint area which becomes pretty debilitating.
I'm having deep massage for it and I use specific exercises to strengthen and stretches to lengthen, but it's not having much effect.
In the past I've taken doses of ibuprofen staggered with paracetamol, only on race day, just to try and put off the point where it interferes with my stride.
Does anyone have any tips or have an alternative way I can manage pain (within the rules and within the law) that I can adopt or try out?
I have my 'A Race' in 10 days time - my first Ultra - and ordinarily I'd bin it off, but I've put in too much work!
