Tuesday was a rest day. I only did my foot PT exercises. Yet by the end of the day, my hip flexor HURT.
Was it how I sat? The shoes I wore? How I bike? I have no idea.
It’s now Wednesday morning and it still hurts.
This is the downside of injury. Pre-injury, I would have just shook it off. Now, I’m worried it’s something more, a step back, a sign I’ll need to take weeks and weeks of running again. And it leaves me unsure about what to do today. Do I do my scheduled run? Scheduled gym session? It’s impossible to know what makes things better, what won’t matter and what makes things worse.
I’m about to run. 5k easy + strides. I guess we’ll see.
