Injuries and Motivation for next Big challenge

As I put together my training plan for the next four weeks in the lead up to Gaelforce West I have stumbled on a few good articles. Il stick the links below!

I have been struggling over the last week to fall back into my training regime and along side this I have a hip pain that keeps on niggling. Was it from over doing it before Gaelforce North race or is it something else? The usual questions that flow through your mind during an injury. The good side of things is that I can still use the bike and short runs seem to be ok for now. It may pass in a few days with the right stretching and foam roller also. Alot of this is curtailed with crazy working hours over the last while and very little chance to get any routine. But there is never an excuse to train, just get up and go every chance!

For now I am going to stick a training plan together and complete it as best I can. I always think training plans are a guideline. anyone that can complete one exactly is doing well.

I have started with a brick session on Tuesday, a good gym session yesterday and the plan is for a low intensity run this evening before work. That should get me going and hopefully motivated to really give it a lash.

Any tips from those of you out there for hip exercises would be welcome. It seems to be my hip flexor but a pain that worsens with distance on a run.
