After dragging myself back to some form of fitness over the past 10 weeks with the objective of doing the Liverpool Half within 2 hrs on 23rd March I have injured myself.
On my long sunday run a week ago, I pushed reasonably hard to do 11 miles at my target race pace of 9min/mile. I had a slight tightening at the very top of my right thigh /groin at the front, in line with my leg.
I stretched well and recovered ok. Another 4 miles went by uneventfully on the following tuesday.
Then on thursday I did 10 miles with a friend at a slower pace (10 mm) which was going fine until mile 8 when I had definite tightness and pain in the same spot - not terrible or enough to make me stop, but annoying.
The next day I struggled to walk properly, and am still in pain today (nowhere near as bad, but still there, really worried I wont make the start line on the 23rd.
Any advice out there from physios about how to minimise time out? I'm taking anti inflammatory, using ice packs and stretching.
