Not sure if I need to ask about this here or in the gym section.<br><br>
A little history is in order. I started running in Aug '05. Went from a couch potato to joining TNT and running a marathon in January of 06. Developed a case of ITBS in my left knee a month before the marathon. Took the last month off of training. Ran the marathon up to mile 15 when my ITBS reared its head and forced me to walk the remaining 11 miles ( talk about a long walk ) Took some time off after the marathon, still had pain. Went through physical therapy for 3 months. Started running again in May 06 and began training for the San Jose HM in Oct. Ran it with little to no problems with the ITBS. Still not having much base built up I started training for the Flying Pig. Didnt run nearly enough miles in training but PRed by 7 minutes. Since the Pig I have been having on again off again pain in my right groin and now in my lower right back just above the waist line, to the right of my spine. Thinking back before the Pig it seemed to me like I was walkng a bit off. My right foot seemed to hit harder than the left.<br><br>
What I am wondering is, two things<br><br>
1. Due to all the problems with my left knee ITBS, is that why my right side is screwed up now?<br><br>
2. I was thinking of taking a month of of running. Focusing on stretching ( which I not very consistent with currently ) strength training, road biking and swimming. By not pounding the crap of ouf myself for a month running, but doing everything else will that allow my groin/back to heal and not kill my aerobic level?<br><br>
Thoughts? Suggestions<br><br>
And no I havent been to a sports med doc yet. Went to my PCP and was told I have tight quad/flexor and bursa? possibly<br><br>
Thanks in advance

<b>Beaker</b> ART= Applied Release Techniques. More of a specialized field of massage. Concentrating more on the breaking up of muscle knots, scar tissue etc. It definately helps, especially in my case.
