Very sore hip - training for half marathon

Trackstar188 posted:
Ive started training for my second half marathon. I'm only into week 4 and Ive run into an issue with my right hip being very sore even to the touch. I'm hoping it's not serious but it hurts to run slow and even in the beginning of my runs. Just my right hip. I'm hoping there are tips of certain stretches, strength workouts or something to make it go away so I can continue my training.

This doesn't sound like stretches are going to help while it's as irritated as it sounds. Generally pain needs to be treated with ice and rest, but I don't know what it is or whether ice will help. You should speak with your doctor, especially if want to get back to running soon. One rule everyone should follow is not to work through pain. Pain is the signal that something's wrong. If you push through it it might get worse and then your running will really be slowed down. Go ahead and speak with your doctor.
