Tendonitis/bursitis: Tendonitis or bursitis is the likely cause. Try to lay off the exercise for about two weeks. Ice your hip two times a day for a week or until you are pain free. Anti inflammatory meds may help also. Gradually resume your activity. If the discomfort recurs, consider seeing a doc for an evaluation. X-rays or physical therapy may be recommended.
