Hi, this is way too long to put in a text, so thought I would ask advice over the blog.
Last week as you may have read, I managed an 18 miler. No problems, actually quite enjoyed myself. My groin muscles (never known of them before!) did feel a little tender afterwards, not during, and I assumed this was because of the elevation and small hills, and of course the sheer distance, as I had only done 15 miles before.
This week I continued my training as usual, and though I did not feel groin pain whilst running, I definitely felt it afterwards. I assumed it was because I didn’t know how to stretch them after my 18 miles, and carried on. Today however, again not feeling it during running, after my easy 50 minute run I felt like I had cramp down there.
It has got to the stage where I can’t even put socks on while standing up – I cannot lift my left leg from standing.
What can I do? Paris is only five weeks away now and I CANNOT MISS IT. Seriously. Not an option.
Please comment with advice/suggestions/similar stories?
