After my run on Monday, my hips really started to bother me; to the point that it hurt to walk. So, I talked to a few people, and did some internet research on the most common running injuries. It turns out that the likely culprit for my pain is my IT bands. My awesome neighbor, Kristine, let me borrow her foam roller last night, and I think it might be helping. So I went out tonight and bought my own. Hopefully this little roller will be a good new friend and will help get me running again. (I haven’t run since Monday). I’ll keep ya’ll posted!
Have any other runners had problems with hip pain? Their IT bands? What did you do to treat it? Leave me a comment 🙂
