I started running again during lockdown. My general level of fitness is okay for my age. (I'm 60) - I was doing long walks and an energetic form of dance, but that stopped being feasible. At first I had a bit of knee pain, but I seemed to be able to get rid of doing that via going back to some exercises that were to do with strengthening leg muscles. Also losing a few pounds of weight.
I built up reasonably slowly from running for just 10 minutes to 30 minutes plus - a slow 5k
But now I'm getting some regular muscle pain behind my left and right hips. Above my backside. Any ideas how to subdue this. The usual - ice, ibuprofen - not pushing myself too hard? Or some form of exercise. (It's not an area in which I've had pain before and wondered if it's like the kind of very small tears you might get if you'd overdone things....
