I have been running for about 7-8 months properly (always been keen on running for fitness but now only competitively/training wise). Initially I have some issues with my ITB (lateral knee pain) which resolved with a fix of shoe and changing my form (heel striker to mid foot).
I had some glute tightening and hip pain in my last half marathon which ended in me nearly crying at the end when the physio had her nasty way with me. Since then I have been paying more attention to stretching and foam rolling.
lately I have been focusing more on my hips for running form, I used to be a very choppy runner but now try and use hip extension, which has decreased my times.I have also upped my swimming which I now do for about 3 hours a week, sometimes more.
I have noticed that I am getting hip pains. sharp to touch over my pelvic brim (just behind the ASIS but still on the bone) bilaterally. When I have a poke around it is sore all around that area, it feel like muscle pain but quite sharp. It is worse when I have been sitting for a period of time and when I initially start to run.
I have been stretching my ITB, which re creates the muscle pain and foam rolling over my pelvic brim hurts in the 'good' muscle way. It's been this intense for a few months now.
Was wondering if anyone has experienced this before? I have a feeling it is my TFL. My ITB is sore to foam roll but no knee pain at all.
