Hi Kristi,

You stated in your topic 'hip pain'-if you are having pain, you need to find out what is causing the pain. Stretches and hip strengthening exercises are great for developing hip strength, however whenever anyone mentions pain, the first thing to do is get it checked out so that you do not develop other issues up and down your kinetic chain due to the possibility of you changing your form unknowingly to compensate for the pain. Stretches and exercises are only good if you do not have an underlying issue for the pain.

Just my two cents...

Run smart!

Here is one video from SparkPeople:

If you have a sedentary job, any extra activity will help. I also have a sedentary job, and take measures to get more activity into my day, such as walking a short distance before and after work and at lunch. Another great way is to tie activity into your bathroom habits - my favorite is to always go to the bathroom on another floor (but don't actually go on the floor LOL, but go to a bathroom on a different level of your house or work). I also often do squats or high knees in the bathroom.

I hope this helps.

I have re-started my running plan lately with some strength training on other days. But I've had some tightness in my hips and this does not help with my sedentary job.

Are there any exercises or stretches that may help? Thanks!
