Running Cures Muscle Strains

I'm not a doctor, but no, not really.

So running through pain has gotten me in trouble in the past - remember the shinsplints from last year? With my left hip soreness much decreased from Sunday's 14+ miles, I ran a moderately easy 3 miles yesterday (on the treadmill) and busted out a 5 mile run today with 3.5 tempo at 7.5 mph (8:00 pace). I thought "This will either fix the hip or kill me once and for all." Fortunately, the hip pain was mostly lactic acid and the run went fine. I feel better than I have all week!
