Think I pulled a groin muscle



And I think I pulled it on my darned coaster, because I thought it would be fun to push it for a few miles. Obviously, bike is slow and heavy and only one speed, so I was getting a good sweaty workout. But the fit is a little off, which wouldn't be an issue on short putzy rides. I could feel different high inner thigh muscles working and getting sore. Must have over done it, now my left upper inner thigh is a basket case today.

I suppose the only thing is resting it?

Day-um!

Thank heavens. I thought you were going to tell us about an exploit with your inflatable girlfriend.

Could be that you have found a muscle that you didn't think you had and just worked it hard. Give it a couple of days before riding- any of the bikes- and then take a gentle ride to the LBS and look for the new bike-- "Just Browsing"
Could also be that you have done a bit of damage so take care not to trip over the bikes on the floor.

I haven't ridden today, and my leg feels worse as the day wears on. When I walk, I'm sort of almost kind of limping. I'm going to try RICE and see if that helps. Ugh!

Sorry big guy. Didn't mean to make a joke at your expense. Didn't realize it was hurting so bad. One of the things I've learned the hard way is it takes AT LEAST twice as long to recover as you think it will and about TEN TIMES LONGER than you think it has any right to. Of all the virtues, patience is one of my least favorite. It's right up there next to chastity.

Blackberry -- no offense taken. Even gave me a chuckle, so don't worry 'bout that at all. And I agree with you about patience. I want more patience, and I WANT IT NOW, DAMMIT!

You have muscles in your groin?








No, really - so sorry.

Well, I'm probably an idiot (and no, you don't necessarily have to agree), but I took out the Trek since DnvrFox keeps giving my Cypress a flat, and climbed aboard to see if I could ride. I could. I pretended it was a "recovery" ride and did a leisurely five miles around the neighborhood. No pain.

I just couldn't get OFF the bike, however. Stabbing pain in my left groin area when I tried to dismount. So something's going on, darn it. But the sun is setting, so I'd better be going -- I think I can do five more miles at a slow pace. Then I'll ice it.

I'm not a doctor but I do have an experience that may be similar.
I went water skiing after not doing it for a long time and after a day on the ski's the next day the inside
muscles of mu legs were so sore I couldn't walk for a couple of days after I first got out of bed especially.
Seems like if I tried to raise my leg latterly, much like you would do to dismount a bike it would be more
painful.

Anyway hope you get better soon! I hate pain.

Since I am only about 30 miles from you right now, you need to be double careful tomorrow!

I thought this was about that bikini wearing beach bunny roller blader you picked up while riding your cruiser at Mission Bay.

Wow, a ten year old thread. I am also having issues with a pulled groin muscle. Would love to hear some tips on how to heal it. I am resting it but still have to move my legs to put on/take off shoes, underwear, socks, pants.....................I am also trying to nurse a problematic achilles tendon in right ankle (groin pull is on right side). The activities I do to try to heal my ankle (icing, heating, stretching etc. etc.) all involve moving and lifting my right leg, and when I do some of these..........it keeps the groin muscle aggravated.
