Hi all, I only graduated from couch to 5k around 4 weeks ago. 10 days ago I did my first 10k, maybe a bit sooner than ideal but it was for a charity close to my heart and the determination got me through. I felt surprisingly ok throughout the run and truly experienced runners high for the first time afterwards! I felt fantastic. However later that night my groin was really sore, I've never experienced this before but put it down to the longer run I wasn't used to. After a day or two it was fine.
I was only able to go on my first run since the 10k today (10 days later) because of a manic schedule recently. I intended a 30min run,I felt fine at first but after 3.5k my groin started niggling. I slowed to a walk then tried to run again but it actually felt worse, both sides of my groin plus my knees started to feel really sore. So I walked the rest for fear of injuring myself. Anyone any tips on how to overcome this, have I possibly injured myself? 😦
