Things haven’t been going as well as I’d hoped. A week after I started jogging again, I got some pretty bad pain in my hip, more specifically my hip flexor. It feels like the same pain I had when I tried running for the first time back in March. At first the pain only happened right after a jog. After a few days of gritting my teeth, the leg began hurting all the time, even on my off days. As of now, I can’t walk right and I’m in pain almost all the time.
I think I’m finally realizing that having a job that requires being in excellent physical condition might not be in my future anymore.
I see an Army doc at Hanscom Air Force Base in a week. Hopefully I’ll know more then.
