But they are not related. My shoes were on sale back in early November so I had the hubs order them for me for Christmas. They are the Wave Creation 11's but I got such a good deal, and I am not one who wants the newest shoe anyway. Well I broke them out yesterday for me 1st road run of 2011, a hilly 5k in the neighborhood.
Unfortunately, have developed some groin pain during and after runs in the past week and a half. I am not sure exactly what is causing it (other than a growing baby), but I have a doctor's appointment this week, so I plan to ask. Please pray she doesn't tell me to stop running!
I have inquired on the internet and have found it to be 2 possible things:
1. More round ligament pain
2. Pubic Symphysis Diastasis (PSD)
If it's the later, I am not sure I can run anymore. If it's the former, I might be able to continue to run at least some. We will see what the doctor says.
I have been running with a "maternity belt" since I was about 4 months pregnant, but my kind of "belt" (aka cut off panty hose) isn't doing much for my groin area I guess.
Have you experienced this? If so, any advice would be greatly appreciated.
