Hello, with 3 weeks to go until my 10k I wanted some advice on an injury i have.
Trained for 5 months now but developed a pain at the top of my left leg AFTER running. It simply flairs up.
During running I dont have too much pain, I can feel it but it is fine to run on. But once i sit down the evening and the next day are pretty bad. The first few steps from getting out of my chair hurt, but it settles as I walk on it.
Hard to identify where the pain is, sometimes it is abductors at the top, sometimes it is top of thigh, sometimes it is groin.
I know if i rest it will clear up in a couple of weeks, but with 3 weeks to go I dont feel I can rest as i have only just completed 10km training and i only do that at 66 minutes.
Should i carry on with three or four days rest between runs and then focus on repairing after the event, or simply stop running now until the day of the race?
