Hey coach, I actually took the entire month of February off and and am planning my first run back for today. The groin is OK, I think, but I get odd pains there now and again. I will try a light build up for a week or so and if things go south will head to a specialist. I'm hoping it doesn't come to that, though. I have been struggling against this for four months now.
Anyway, I will keep you posted. Unfortunately I am fat and out of shape now, but hopefully will be able to return to form soon.
