In brief: Reasons are many!

You may be doing to many.
Find out when it occurs and back off, until you do not experience discomfort. Since it is present during the activity, and not at other times, it cannot be trochanteric bursitis. Illiotibial band syndrome is another possibility, but i think you are over doing it!
