Unusual Pain - Woman related only

Posted: 22/09/2014 at 09:12

Hello ladies,


I have been experiencing a strange pain of lately and wondered if anyone else had anything similar happen to them or can offer some advice.


It has happened quite a few times not but is very seldom. It's two things:

1 - When I run I feel some pain/discomfort in my pelvic area, of all my female organs. It's avery stange and uncomfortable feeling - difficult to explain, but is like I can "feel" all my organs inside. It does not happen in relation to my period.

2- I wake up in pain on my pubic bone/area. Is rather painful I actually groan in pain during my sleep and wake up from it. The nearest I can describe it is I have been hit really hard on the front. There is not visual change, no redness or swelling etc etc.In the morning is ok. Seems to come on at night.

I am considering goign to the GP but am expecting him/her to say stop running and take paracetamol

That also means no 18 mile run.

In case you didn't understand.

Thank you everyone, I might have made it a bit difficult for you all to get an understanding of my "hectic" training - mainly due to the fact that training this regularly and seriously is all new to me.
But have received some very good advice so will take this with me and let you know how I get on after the H IM if you are interested

Firstly I will take this week very easy - just swim and gym (as I am following a programme)

Secondly I will look at starting a plan next week or so.

Thank you all

Thanks Dave great advice! Im not a drinker and wont be eating "silly" going parties or late nights. It's just a relax pretend to be a lizard on the beach holiday  It makse sense though to make the week before the holiday the last big training week.

Hi Flyaway, thanks for the reply yes that would be ideal but unfortunately it would have to be before or nothing

thanks all but especially M..o.use for the first sensible answer award.

Seem some people have selective reading as well as selective hearing

I am training 6 x a week not gym twice a week and a few maras, drr


Anyhow lets get to the important bit

Yes went from 0 in Feb to today training 6 x week

I am going to the Gym 2x a week started only recently - as I have an old disk injury and want to strengthen my core as I know this is very important especially on longer races.

Swimming 3x a week as am doing a lot of technique so 2x pool drills and 1x lake

Running 2x a week

Gym 2x Week

Cycling 2x week

I end up varying between 70/90 a week.

I only have one speed at the moment when I say I am not pushing is because I dont want to injure myself so jut getting round in a comfortable pace probn giving 80% off my best.

I am doing this long run (this weekend)  and half IM because it's deferred from last year and since I have started training I put in long runs to build some stamina, now I know that I can run / go for hours, albeit slow, I am thinking I should start concentrating on speed. Again not sure if my theory is correct.

Please dont foget that I am a newby and building up on all my lost fitness (was never really really fast to start with) so please be patient, everyone has different goals I dont intend to get to the Podium this year for me is to get ideally as fast as I was before I stopped training then next year I can try to break a few PB.

I would not have entered an Half IM at this stage in my training but since is deferred I have nothing to loose I will set a target for next year.

My question was only whether I was over training because althought I can run 1/2 marathon and not feel crippled and run the day after or cycle etc etc - I cant do so at any kind of speed. I have no umph!

Thanks again hope this additional information gives a bit more insight I was worried about giving too much info in case it was too much to digest

I did say I am doing an Half IM in August sorry if it wasnt clear this is my goal. To complete it in as little pain as possible

Last long distance was a Half Marathon and next week will be doing 18miles (last long run I think)

Yes lost weight sensibly, have a very good diet no issues there. I think I am over training because when I start any activity my muscles still ache from the previous activity. The ache is like a fatigues pain not a niggle or injury type of pain.

So because I feel fatigued and my muscles ache I cant really push and am sluggish and not getting any faster. I take a total rest 1 day a week, train 6 days a week. Sometimes two activities in one day.

I am a newbie so not sure what I have to do to "analyse your goals and your training based on current fitness such as it is"
