Recommended Posts

Hi all runners,
Need advise from you guys. Hope you guys can enlighten me for my injury. I am a new pie in running sport. I have been running quite regularly for the past few months for 3 to 4 times a week. Recently, I felt the discomfort on my Upper Tight, Inner Tight, especially on the groin area. My lower Calf Muscle also felt the discomfort and pain. There are pain but it still bearable. And it all on my right side. I also felt the discomfort and pain on my stomach on the right side. While doing my sit up after the run. When I press on the upper and inner tight area and the lower tight and calf muscle. I can felt the discomfort and pain. And it force me to take a break for the running....  :(

May I know am I experiencing Hamstring injuring or other type of problems? Have anyone got the same experience which I am going through... :( What can I do to make it heal faster? and resume my running activities... It very frustrating..... :( Your help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.

Don't worry about it...It is widely believed that the hamstrings undergo an eccentric muscle fiber action (they are lengthening while being activated) during the swing phase of high-speed running.

Hence, eccentric exercises can be incorporated into your running programs to prevent hamstring injuries and improve sports performance.

Eccentric strengthening exercises are what you need, maybe a little too much running (and too fast) may also cause your hamstrings to work too hard (stretch and strain).

Hello, 

I am a chiropractor and I thought I'll share my two cents with you. 

1) If you are new to running regularly 3-4x/week for the past few months, it might be a case of inadequate load management i.e. too much too soon. Without more details, it's hard to comment. The general rule of thumb is your current week mileage shouldn't be 60% more than the average of the past four four weeks. 

2) There's no mention of if you currently do other workout or if you were physically active before you started running. If you don't do any form of cross training, it might be good time to start. 100% recommend strength training. It reduces your risk of injury by almost 70%. 

3) If you are not sure of what to do, the best thing is seek professional advice. If you are reading advice off forums and the internet, we highly suggest that you do a thorough fact checking :) Lots of information being shared online are not evidence-based! 

We did blog a while ago on how to prevent running injuries and also nine running truths every runner should know. We included references in our blog for easier fact checking.

    • Almost brand new Asics DynaFlyte 3 Sound, bought from Asics official website. Took for a 5k run only before realizing t's Abit too small for me. It's a US 11. Green and white colour way. No signs of use. Willing to sell at about $70, MSRP ins$199 sgd https//carousell.com/p/1020718578 
    • I wonder if those registered for HM will also get the finisher shirt? My personal feel is although the registrants are able to get this year's entitlements, somehow there may be an 'empty' feel as the race have not been run. I would have prefer a full refund.
    • It will be a last minute decision as there is pressure. Being involved for the last 2 years one will realise that there are many stakeholders in SCSM and not just Ironman.
    • Yeah - had attended some of the meetings. There was a lot that was said! Should have broken it up into 2 posts..... but work lah - no time to think any more.  It will be interesting to see if he is able to pull it off cos the Hamburg organiser was super confident. However Germany is also super cautious so he is probably fighting against the govt regulations where only up to 5000 could do a run. For the number of road closures, stations etc, believe they would be out of pocket. 
    • Beo @lonewolf has updated the 1st post very efficiently, the updates from 2XU (wordings below) is that registered runners slots will be transferred to 2021 Apr and we will still get the goodies promised for 2020... that sounds like good deal....
