I was going to do some CV training at the gym yesterday, however about 10 minutes into a run, my hip started playing up, it'd been funny all day however I suspect I may have damaged a back muscle. I stopped what I was doing and decided to just do some upper body work, on the arms and only spent half of what I would usually spend in the gym.
I want to go back today, and am desperate to get back into it, however my hip has still been funny all day. I dont want to push myself too much in that I make it worse, any suggestions of what I can do? Maybe some stretches that may help relieve it? I've got some ibugel and pain relief to take before hand also
Take time off running and do other things. Any other things. Running is the worst thing you can do for your joints that doesn't involve a faulty parachute.
I don't know anything except running is bad.
if you think you pulled a muscle, put some ice on it then heat. .. i think is the order...or maybe other way around
Just rest and it'll get better if it's minor. Next time do dynamic stretching for getting warmed up before lifting weights/intense cardio.
