The common motion: in these two activities is hip flexion possibly with abduction (moving away from body) and external rotation. This type of pain may be due to bursitis (though likely to also be tender to touch), iliotibial band tightness, or tendinitis of a gluteal muscle. Skilled examiners including Sports Medicine specialists can perform special examining motions to sort this out. I would make an appointment.
