My exercises are progressing and my pain is decreasing. Actually, until the latest progression of exercises, I wasn’t really feeling any pain. I was to the point where I would normally just start running again. But since I’m trying to make my hip stronger, I’m sticking to the plan continuing with my exercises instead of running. I notice now that when I hike or go upstairs my legs feel much stronger, my hips are level and my knees don’t fall in. So I think I’m on the right track. I got the OK to put clipless pedals back on my bike last week so that means it’s ok for me to use my hip flexors again. In a couple weeks I think I get to start running a little! I can’t wait! I keep thinking that I should sign up for a fall race then I remember that I’ll be starting with 1 minute of running and that it will probably be a while before I’m ready for a half marathon or even a 10k, but that’s ok, I’ll just be happy to be running again.
