Apparently I’m an old man. What’s more old man-ish than a hip injury? Not much, says I.
The hip injury has come about because I, apparently, have an asymmetrical gait. That puts torque on the soft tissue of my hip joint. Increased running with poor form has lead to a stress injury—a fairly debilitating one at that. Cross-training is out for a while.
Winter has set his icy claws deep into the mountains and valley. Finding myself not outfitted for cold weather riding has put a rapid stop to riding. My fitness level is spiraling downward at a dizzying pace.
Combine winter to my hip problem and it’s a literal example of adding insult to injury.
