Thanks for the replies. I've bit the bullet and have seen a physio who reckons that the problem is coming from a weak left hip and weak core, she also said I've got quite a bit of scar tissue on the adductor. So, I've been given exercises to do and have another appointment to see her next week. I've been running twice since I saw her, didn't have the groin pain the first time but did have it the second time....all very odd. Hope I can get it sorted, I feel fitness wise I'm good to go but this niggle is really holding me back. Thanks for the advice guys, hope you all get on the mend and continue to go from strength to strength.
Cheers Franners! I have to say that today they are really painful, I'm walking talking much shorter strides than I normally would. Did you have massage once you'd found out the issue? Are you back running now?
I'm relatively new to running so looking for some advice. I have a pain/tightness right at the top of my thigh/groin when I've been running for a wee while, not huge distances, did 4 miles today at the Portobello Promathon and it was pretty painful from around mile 2, just seems to get tighter and tighter the further I go, now really tight, stretching it out is proving to be.....interesting!
Any ideas what it could be or how I could resolve this issue? It is predominently left side but today the right was joining in too!
Many thanks and all the best for a happy and injury free 2013.
