I am making a slow recovery from what my doctor says is mild hip bursitis, although at times it doesn’t feel mild – at least not when I’m active. I have been getting in about 5 hours if cycling each week and some minor strength training. I am not running and will be volunteering at the Adirondack Marathon on the 22 instead of racing.
This seems to be the best approach. My the muscles throughout my left hip always seem to be on alert and ready to knot up at any moment, especially the gluteus minimus, periformis, and TFL. They are in need of constant massage or they seize up. Sitting around all day at work doesn’t help.
I did manage a 2+ hour ride today in great Vermont fall weather. Those hip muscles were tight, but I took it very easy and focused on relaxing.
