Hi there all,
I'd describe myself as an average club runner - running so 20 - 30 miles a week when fit. I have been suffering from the occurrence of a groin strain on and off for the last 10 years or so - and was wondering if anyone has had the same symptoms and if so what they have done to have it sorted?
The pain happens slowly - not your classic idea of a groin strain, when you pull something during a run or in a game of football. It creeps up on me almost during the day, at work, or at home - on either side, sometimes a slight pain, other times becoming painful enough for me to have to do a passable imitation of a John Wayne walk! When its like this running is completely out of the question disrupting the training. Mostly it disappears after a day or so. This can happen once or twice a month – or I can have a few months when it never happens at all.
I am now working on core stability a lot more to see if that strengthens the core and prevents it from happening as frequently as it has. Anyone suffered from the same kind of thing I wonder?
