The doctor told me I have bursitis of the gluteus and said it would clear up in a couple of weeks. I am frustrated because I can not run. Is there anything in the meantime to speed up the recovery, it is nearly two weeks with the injury but no improvement.

We understand that it must be frustrating not being able to run at present. However, the fact you state that there is no noticeable sign of improvement with the injury over the last two weeks, would suggest there is still an underlying issue there not properly resolved. Our advice would be to seek the advice of a physiotherapist or equivalent professional who will be able to diagnose and advise on next steps to ensure a proper recovery.
