Hi - new to running week 6 of C25k, really love it so far. Can now run for 20 mins non stop (heavy at 14st down from nearly 19st) all was going well but have developed strong hip pain on one side? No hip issues previously, good running brand shoes, what could be causing it & do I stop trying to run for a bit?

If you don't have any groin or thigh pain it's unlikely to be coming from the hip joint. If its localised to the outside of the hip it could be a couple of things but most likely an acute greater trochanteric bursitis. Try to ice it and reduce running down to 15mins and maintain at that level if that eases the pain. If you can keep some stretching and strengthening work going. eg squats, lunges and stretch. If pain continues with each run get an assessment with a physio. Virtual or face to face will work well for this condition.
