I am relatively new to running - started back in November with C25K and have been working up to 10k since March. Throughout March and the first half of April, I was averaging 15-20 miles per week (so not a huge amount!), although I would say I was reasonably fast-paced (around 7-7:30 min/mile), which felt just within the upper limit of my comfort zone.
About a week ago, I noticed a pain localised to the front of my right hip, which was only triggered by running. I stopped running last Friday (5 days ago) and have not run since (apart from a tentative 30-second jog on my walk today).
Obviously I can't visit a GP or physio under current circumstances, but does anyone have any advice re. next steps? I am already stretching and have taken ibuprofen a couple of times a day in case it's inflammation. The pain is not present when I stretch, sit down, stand, walk or climb stairs, but it flares when I start jogging (even slowly).
There is no pain in my thigh or knee, so I don't think it's ITBS. Does anyone have any thoughts on what this could be, and when I might be able to run again? I don't want to lose all my progress
Thank you in advance!
