Should I run even if I’m injured?

Ive been running consistently for awhile but recently ive been experiencing a pain in my lower hip. I really don’t want to lose fitness but it is making it hard to run. Should I take a break? If so how long, or should I push through it?

    You should see an ortho doctor to determine the reason for the pain. Continuing to run with pain can be risky. You might make the issue worse (something that may have been resolved with PT may end up needing surgery, for example). Listen to your body. Even if you need to take some time off running, there may be other activities you can safely do (biking or swimming, for really depends on what's causing the pain).

    It can run the gauntlet from simple and easy to impossible and corrupt.
