My groin had been troubling me and the running wasn’t helping. I had some physio on Wednesday and whilst I had some very sore spots, there was nothing obvious wrong with me. Hernia like symptoms but no lumps….

I did the 5km at the racecourse on Saturday morning. Pretty ordinary conditions and I treated it as a threshold run winning fairly comfortably in 16:48. I got to meet Bressie and overall it was good fun.

A decent outside threshold run on Sunday to finish off the week. That certainly didn’t do the groin any favours…
