Here's the latest with me. Again, undiagnosed, so don't know exactly what I have. Decided to give it a go, and switched from running my hometown's marathon to the 1/2. Ran pain free, and did a couple minutes better than I had hoped for, on a real flat course. 2 wks later, back in Tahoe, jumped in a trail half marathon at the last minute, groins flared up on a trail mostly on singletrack with some hills, but won, admittedly not against the most elite field, but had fun running a great course.
So, at the point now, where I'm thinking and know that they really flare up primarily going uphill, which most of my training revoloves around, b/c thats basically what the terrain demands around here. Went on a long run on the Western States trail to Emigrant pass at the top of Squaw, over to Granite chief area, and back down, for like 2 1/2 hrs, and they obviously flared up pretty bad. But, am going to hold to original plan and run NYC marathon, hoping that it won't be too bad considering its mainly flat, relative to all the runs I do around here. Until I get it diagnosed officially, and it starts to deterioriate to the point where I can't do any of the above, I'm gonna hold off on even considering surgery. I did have a short abductor release therapy session post road 1/2 marathon, at a booth that was set up, and it felt pretty good though tough to really say how much benefit there was.
So, thats the latest, all of you that are dealing with this injury on a full on level, I can't imagine how tough it must be, best of luck, i'll keep chiming in periodically to see whats goin on, and let y'all know how I'm doing, not that anyone cares.
