Whatever you do, take good care of it. Don't let soreness turn into a painful injury.

Start by doing what is necessary, then do what is possible and suddenly you will be doing the impossible -- St Francis of Assisi

DITTO what STITCHERFRIEND recommended. Although I am extraordinarily flexible, I still get sore and tense and it makes it even more difficult for me to stretch since I am already to hyper flexible. A good roller and yoga are indispensible!!!

Besides the foam roller which is a godsend. I also do some yoga after my runs. One of my favorite stretches, not sure what it's called is to lay on your back, cross your legs, either ankle to the opposite knee or just cross them as if sitting in a chair and pull back. You will really feel it in the hip/buttocks. Don't forget to breathe. Try to keep your shoulders down/back too.

My morning's run was painful due to a sore hip. I did finish but had to walk much of the last mile. After looking up online it appears to be a sore Tensor Fasciae Latae muscle. I've found several stretches that seem to hit the spot. The recommended machines that I used to use at a gym were the Captain's Chair, lifting my knees, and the Hip Abductor Machine. Does anyone know of any exercises that I can do at home to get a similar workout for these muscles?
