I couldn’t agree more!  Pain is your bodies sign that something is not right and for athletes it’s usually an imbalance, compensation or weakness.  There is no amount of adjusting or scaling back that will resolve dysfunction.  Swimming is likely fine in the meantime and possible cycling.  But like Victoria states, I would limit running until you get in with a good sports minded physical therapist.  Be wary of PT’s that treat symptoms and not the full body.  If you need a good PT practice to ensure they look at your whole body for full resolution of the issue, let me know.  Who you go to will make all of the difference for your long term training and racing.  And get on those glut activation exercises in the meantime!
