The Wellness Digest Adductor Magnus Muscle: Groin, Pelvic and Thigh Pain
I share this picture because it describes best the recent pain I have been having. This link gives you a lot of info about it.
Holy Moly, this site has exactly what I needed! I’m glad I found the info here, I was trying to imagine the doctor visit. “Doc, I don’t know what I’ve done, but it hurts HERE!” The gesturing alone would be a complete embarrassment, lol!
I have been working my marathon training program since August, but due to muscle atrophy, I’m a very slow study. I’m putting in the work with 20-25 miles a week walking/running, but it’s slow hard work.
One of my greatest deficiencies are hills. I can keep up with my walking group on the downhill and flat, but the hills slow me to a crawl every time. To help improve, I have added stairs to my daily rituals. We have a single flight in my office building so I started this week climbing them many times a day. I noticed a few days ago my thighs were getting really sore. I didn’t think much of it, something always huts on my body, until this morning my groin was sore too. After a little searching, The Wellness Digest helped me figure it out!
So, I’m going to try these YouTube solutions to strengthening my Adductor Magnus!!!
I also realized I felt more comfortable walking in my leggings this week. It’s because compression they provide help to support the adductor magnus.
I am going to be pushing this pretty hard, as I only have 3 weeks training left before the taper!
Time to play catch-up on my posting.
Holidays were good with great family and wonderful friends!
Got off Keto a bit, but back on now!
The races are getting closer. I am walk/running every day now. At least 2 miles, at most 6 during the week. Weekend training still with USA Fit Walking Program and still loving it!
I started a Streak on January 3rd to walk/run every day without fail.
The streak is alive!!
Trying to figure out nutrition for the long hall. We are talking 7 hours on the road on race day! Keto athletes insist I only need to trickle carbs during the race, so I am going to try that this weekend for my 14-mile training run.
They have recommended Ucan before the race. (Ucan is expensive, so I am trying a homemade recipe I found on the net. Claire at The Planted Runner posted a recipe I’m going to try instead of the UCan. I’m calling it FauxCan)
This is my current plan:
- Normal Keto meals Thursday or Friday.
- Normal BPC on the way to the meeting-up area.
- For this weekends 14 miler, I’m mixing one pre-run FauxCan and one for 2 hours in. The run should be no more than 4 hours or faster. I’m also making deluded electrolyte (Nuun) for my Hydration pack instead of water. (2 Nuun in 2 liters)
- I will pack a few Quest Hero bars for “food”
- The last hat trick (and the strangest to me) is Smarties. Bought a bag this morning.
- Advice from another keto runner, Pack Gels just in case. (Thanks Sharon!)
Marathon Race Day:
- Normal Keto meals Friday and Saturday.
- Normal BPC on the way to the meet-up area.
- Sunday morning drink – FauxCan. For the race, I’m mixing 3 bottles. One pre-race, one 2.5 hours in, one 5 hours in. (If you have any feedback on this, please speak up!)
- Quest Hero bars for “food”
- Roctane for the second half.
I think this concludes food prep for long runs and race day.
