Eleven weeks ago I strained by groin...took 3 weeks off from running and then ran a marathon. Ended up re-injuring my groin strain and added a hip flexor strain. Its been 8 weeks, I've been going to rehab and now my physical therapist is allowing me to run short slow distances. The therapist tells me that "achiness" is ok but pain is not okay. Each time that I run the achiness becomes worse and as of today it is now painful. Any idea as to how long it will take me to recover? I'm beginning to wonder if I've done more damage than what has been identified...have not had a MRI done. I have a marathon in 16 weeks, I'm getting nervous about being able to complete it. Thank you!
