I did the Birmingham Half Marathon yesterday, my first one in 2 hrs 35 mins. Not a great time but I only got to 8 miles in training 6 weeks before picking up a groin injury which meant I only really did a couple of shorter runs in the last 6 weeks before the event. The groin was fine and I felt mostly ok although a little unsure of the trainers I had.
I was going well up until mile 9 when i started to feel a sharp pain down my right hip and in my right glute. As I took each stride I began to feel it really hurting and tried to run it off. Then I developed a sore left hamstring which get worse and I basically ended up walking the last couple of miles. All the way through from the beginning of the race I noticed my toes hurt as my foot pushed off, and this got worse as the race went on, to the point where the soul of my foot was really sore and my achilles also really hurt at the end.
What do you think? Is it because I'd gone further then I had before? I was going really well until mile 9. Or is it something else?
Thanks in Advance
