Well, after threatening to go to the doctor my body showed remarkable improvement. In fact, I was planning to try a short, easy run on Thursday. BUT! On my way home from work I jogged up a short flight of stairs in the subway and it didn't feel great, so I decided to wait a couple more days. Will try again tomorrow and see how it goes.

Maybe I am being over-cautious, but I really don't want to end up reinjuring it and having to wait another 2-3 weeks to heal. Better safe than sorry, even though it is making me crazy.

I was quite sure I put a reply here.

You could consider doing the taping and then attempting light running

try read up on alternative exercises to assist your recovery

ice the area after exercises

I started easing back in on Monday with a very short run. The groin started to feel strange at the 1200m mark, so I stopped at about 1400m for fear of reaggravation. Tuesday morning it felt fine, though, so I ran 2500m with very minor discomfort, and feel fine now (Wednesday morning here), so I think I will run a bit further today and see how everything is holding up.

Things are coming along. I feel no discomfort while not running, but after a few km the groin doesn't feel good. I have been running, but am still going really light. It seems like it is getting better, but the slow rate of progress is bothering me.

Anyway, I will keep you posted.

do try the taping, for when exercising

you able to leave the taping on for 5 - 7 days without removing. It dries quickly, so you can bath or shower with the taping, and simply dry it with a towel afterwards

Well, I have been running and the groin is feeling a lot better, but it still isn't at 100%. I think I will give it another week and start working my way back into serious training.

Andrew, the groin can take a long time to recover

if you sit a lot during the day, make sure to stand up throughout the day and don't sit in the same position for too long

take walk around breaks

Still coming along here. Have been running alternate days and not pushing myself. Trying to stand more, and generally take care of myself. It feels like it is getting better, but progress is slow. Still a bit sore during the run, so I will continue taking it easy for a little while longer. One fortunate thing is that at least it is winter now, so I am not missing out on prime running time. At the same time it is hard to stay motivated when the temperature is dropping and I am battling a nagging injury. I'm looking for low stakes races to keep me going in the meantime.

Speaking of, I have a 7k fun run on Sunday, temperature expected to be -10. Judging by the running I have been doing, I am looking at somewhere between 28:30-30:00. I'm not going to push it, but there is always that desire to go for broke. Still, I promised myself I wouldn't go faster than 4:05/km, and I would ease off if I felt even a little bit sore.

As always, will keep you posted.
