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!
