------edited to add---<br>
I did this in October<br>
when I ran across some Felt Covering at the Track,(to protect from Football Cleats )<br>
and caught my foot which ''torqued'' my hip,,,,like an idiot I finished the run, but it's been extremely sore ever since...

Lost a month to this recently... Two massages and much stretching later, I was back on the road. Try these
<ul><li>Lie on your back. Lift left knee. Place right ankle on top of left knee. With both hands, pull left knee towards you. Switch sides.</li>
<li>Lie on back. Put right foot flat on floor to left of left leg. Pull knee toward you. Switch sides.</li>
<li>While standing, left right foot so that lower leg is horizontal in front of you. Pull higher with hands. Switch sides.</li>
