Got a new pair of runners 2 weeks ago. As far as the shoes go there a huge step forward in terms of foot comfort but while i'm running and for a couple of days after my left hip feels like my Nan's did just before she had it replaced.

Maybe foolishly, i'm taking the view that my body is getting used to the new shoes and i should just run through it.

Any thoughts.

Get a new pair of shoes! These obviously don't suit you and to continue running in them will cause even more damage. We all make mistakes when we buy shoes. Make sure you have your gait and foot strike analysed and then you can be reasonably assured that you won't make the same mistake.

Rest for a couple of days, go swimming, have a massage, put on different pair of shoes...try again.

Good luck.
