Bad Hip and Chest Infections

Here’s a bit of an update as these pages have remained pretty silent since the 9th!

After my hip issues last week I decided to take a couple of days off. This increased to five days yesterday after a full blown chest infection decided to hit me and running and uncontrollable coughing don’t really mix well. So on Tuesday night with my lungs feeling better, although still with ‘a bit of a cough’ I decided to try a three miler to get myself back in to it. Fail.

I started running and fifteen paces in felt quite good aside from my chest which felt a bit tight… then I felt the hip pain returning so I turned back. 0.25 miles! Not in the best of moods after that, I’d have thought it’d be alright after almost a week. I was wrong. It didn’t feel right for an hour or so afterwards but not overly painful.

So, what now? Not sure… Plan on giving it a rest until Saturday and try again then. Very frustrating – all I want to do is get out there!

In the meantime I’ve just purchased Born to Run: The Hidden Tribe, the Ultra-Runners… from Amazon which should arrive tomorrow has now arrived, so I’ll be mostly reading that.
