I had an issue with my IT band after I strained it following a long cycle a couple of years back. When running I'd feel a tickle at 1.5miles then the pain would build gradually until it stopped me.
It was due to scar tissue (adhesions) from the initial injury rubbing and becoming inflamed. Possibly built up due to me being too eager after the strain and not allowing enough time to recover/no foam rolling.
Had a few sessions with a physio involving deep tissue work. Bloody painful breaking it all down but it worked amazingly and it hasn't returned!
I have abdominal pain similar to that described in this thread. It is in the lower abdomen on the right hand side and is aggravated by sneezing. It occurs after running or if I lie on the ground and lift up my stretched legs off the ground. I took a four week break and it eased of. Yesterday I went for a 4-5 mile run and the pain is back. I had a scan but there was no sign of a hernia and there is also no bump. My doctor doesn't know what it is. Can anyone suggest what it may be.
I can see it's been a few years since your post, but I'm wondering how you got on? I'm experiencing something similar. Went a little too heavy on the leg press and popped my groin.
Been five weeks now and although the groin is getting lots better I have a similar abdominal pain to the one you describe. I can do most things (cycle, cross trainer, weights) but I can't run or make any fast, sharp movements. A leg raise or L-seat as you describe would bring on the pain also. It's extremely sharp and stops me immediately.
Brilliant race, would certainly say it's the toughest trail run I've entered so far and was very enjoyable (before this I've been in Spartan, MudRunner Classic, Hell Down South). The hills were punishing! Finished at 1hr 49 but reckon I can do better next time (had calorie burnout at around 9 miles (but of course ploughed on through it)- will eat for heavy hills in future and train more specifically beforehand!). Saying that, think it was great this being the first time on the run since we had no idea what to expect and fell for mind games the course designers played!
Slightly surprised the bog was so shallow- I'm only 5'5 and had to swim a fair bit of it in HDS, but guess that's what gives each course its character?
Hats off to the event organisers and designers, it was a beaut! Bring on next year...
