To anyone who can help,
I have just experienced hip flexor pain and 3 weeks before the marathon. I've never had it before.
I had 3 days off running after it first started so missed my last 20 mile training run. After 3 days i ran 13 miles and was in agony afterwards. I saw a physio who did some dry needling and gave me exercises and diagnosed the psoas hip flexor as the culprit strained muscle.
Can i still run the marathon, and should i just rest from now on? How much fitness will i lose. My aim was sub 3:25 having run 3 marathons at 3:22, 3:23, and 3:24 (and 1 at 3:41), but perhaps i shall just hope to finish now.
Anyone else run a marathon with hip flexor pain. Any advice is very welcome.
