So, I'm totally frustrated and bummed out. I've figured out that the leg pain that I've been having is a hip flexor strain. No fun. Not sure what caused it exactly, though it's probably a combination of not stretching well enough before running, poor core strength and going too hard too fast.
I haven't run AT ALL this week. I'm itching to go...but I'm going to take 1 more day as a rest day. I'll attempt my 10 mile long run on Sunday morning and I'm thinking that I'll do an easy 3 miler on Saturday at some point.
I'm glad that the pain is getting better. For the first few days it hurt so bad that I thought I was going to cry every time I tried to move the leg. It's slowly getting better, with a little bit less pain each day.
If I'm able to gt back to running by the end of the week, I'll hit 2 of my 3 milestones...200 miles since starting to run and my first double digit run. Wish me quick recovery and luck!
