New finding

stats of the week: run 16 km, zwift cycled 206 km, tm walked 10 km

What I regarded as a minor tendon problem seems to be more serious. The x-ray shows a hip deformation (called cam impingement) that is not really suitable for intensive cycling. This finding may explain the pain I have developed after I increased indoor cycling over the recent weeks. Cycling indoor is much more intensive than outside because the hip is rotating all the time without a second of rest.

The conclusion has to be to stop cycling completely for a while until the pain decreases. I hope I will be able to jog frequently at a limited pace. I am lucky that this year's London Marathon has been postponed to autumn.
