I am running the Brighton Marathon in three weeks, my first for 15 years. Training was going well until I went out for a run on Feb 27th when I had pains in my inner thigh. I assume this is a groin strain, so I stopped training for a week. I then did the Eastbourne Half on March 6th without too much difficulty but the pain in my thigh returned the day after.
So I rested again and waited until the pain subsided before doing a 20 mile run at the weekend. Now the pain has come back again and this time does not seem to be subsiding too quickly.
I guess I am returning to running too quickly? In which case what should be my strategy to ensure I am recovered for Brighton April 10th?
