My right hip has been a bit sore, possibly as a result of the Sprint at RIT (maybe running too hard w/o enough warmup? although I DID warm up some), and possibly aggravated by lots of hill climbing at Mendon on Friday. It's a new ailment for me so I'm trying to be cautious about it, thus I didn't run yesterday and decided not to run today. Dog walks on level ground didn't seem to bother it TOO much though.
Cheryl suggested that we take the dogs to Lincoln Park, parking at the end of Smith Rd and walking down to the waterfront, to check out the very major construction happening down there. About 1 minute into the downhill walk, it was pretty obvious that I should not have agreed to this walk -- downhill did not agree with my hip issue at all. Once we got down to the bottom, she wanted to walk further, but I declined, on account of my unhappy hip. Walking uphill to the car was marginally better than walking downhill but still wasn't great.
It feels like some sort of pulled muscle, so hopefully things will be fine in a few days, at least if I avoid doing activities that aggravate it (like the hilly walk today!).
