Been getting back into the running with a few 10k then the dreaded hip flexor injury. Any advice? I'll admit to not being the best at stretching pre/post run.
Majority of running injuries caused by training error...too much too soon and not enough of a gradual adaption to load.
Minimal weak if any evidence that stretching is protective against injury....evidence points to load adaption, sleep, nutrition etc higher up the hierarchical scale....stretching doesn’t do any harm but shouldn’t be a priority over the above.

I've picked up an injury playing tennis and I'm not sure if it's a groin injury (I have the typical symptoms i.e. struggling to sprint, pain down my groin) or a hernia of some sort (pain at the inside of my pelvic bone and sore when I cough/sneeze) or some combination of the two.

Anyway, who should I go to for a diagnosis? Doctor? Physio? Or a sports injury clinic?

No need for any of those, it's a Gilmores groin.

Trust me, I'm an engineer.   ;D

Had a look online and that sounds like what I have alright. What's the best treatment for it?
MRI to confirm structural damage of abdominal wall/conjoint tendon...if large puncture , mesh surgically put in place + rehab x 10-12 weeks.. If no puncture, rehab x 10-12 weeks

That's the glory of a round robin system that underage teams can learn and develop unlike the old one strike and you're out.
I see the Rhubarbs are doing their best to reduce the Ros support by having next week's game in fkn.Ballina!
Permanently cribbing about something  ;D

A lot of hype surrounding Mayo since Sunday, everyone tipping them as the team to challenge the Dubs.

The league can be a difficult gauge sometimes as we don't know where teams are up to in terms of fitness, after Sunday its safe to assume Mayo are in the team in the best shape. Agree with seanie about AOS, looks like he's in the best shape of his life.
Speaking of that, what’s Comer at these days? Must have done serious damage to miss the entire league with an ankle injury sustained at Christmas.

Yeah brutal day. Coming in by the beach at the end was cruel way to finish. Blinded by sand!! But was happy enough. First run and was about 1 hr 17. So was happy enough.
Was at physio at the start of the week and apparently my glute is really weak in the left side. So gave me exercises for that, that I've been working on. He advised to stay of the running for a week just in case, as I strengthen it up as it was still fairly tender. But said a week could make a good improvement and should be able to ease myself back into some running then. Frustrating now but chomping to get back running again so would rather take my time as I'm not rushing back for any run in particular now that I've missed the Omagh half.     
Ya, mental stuff. Prefer no wind than to have it against you and behind you....

I’d recommend doing a small bit or any type of aerobic acivity after a couple of days rest when things have settled down. Niggles are part of the game unfortunately, everything will be sound and you’ll be stronger for it.

Am signed up but did the Bundoran 10 mile last weekend and having trouble with glute and lower back. Haven’t been able to run since. Any one ever have problem with their Sacroiliac joints? From some light reading think this might be the issue. Need to get it looked at but struggling to get time.

Nothing worse than niggling injuries that screw up your training block. I've really struggled over the past few months with a combination of things. The physio will see point you in the right direction but working on some fundamentals will do you no harm. I've been following these guys on Instagram for a while and they post some great stretches for hips, lower back etc. Getting as much flexibility in those areas as possible will help you a lot.

This guy also does a lot of focused exercises that should help you.

This one being specific to your injury.

Good luck!

Cheers for that. Have to try and get seen this week. Have only been running since Jan and never had a injury until the week before the Bundoran run, I had a slight twinge in the left calf. So rested it all week and rolled away. But felt it at about 8 miles in the run and think I was trying to carry it and now have screwed up my whole left side. From lower back, down into my glute and hamstring. Nightmare.

Have stayed off it since the run but the half is in 3 weeks so gutted that I can't do anything. If's it's not right by next week I may pull the plug for the half.
How’s it now? How far can you go with tolerable level of discomfort...keep at that distance / pace and get it looked at by a professional.
Wild weather that day in bundoran , last mile was crazy.

Galway U-20s:
Darragh Silke- Corofin
John Daly-Mountbellew Moylough
Evan Murphy-Salthill (playing for Galway Utd at the minute so probably rules him out for a while anyway)
Murphy tore cruciate in October.

Not sure Farr. Heard gilvarry was but not sure.

What club nominated Horan was it Westport or tubber , matter of interest.

Gilvarry has said he won't be going for it.

Sound , cheers. Might be alone so . Can't see Solan going for itwith Horan going for it.
Probably be as well getting it sealed and James Horan can get the whole feast of football on show at McHale park the weekend. Really hope reape gets a right crack at for the league . He's showing so well .

I'd say Horan's backroom team would be far more expensive than what Rochford was proposing.
Wouldn't be hard seeing as Rochford didn't have one , Forde/Conway was never a done deal.

@moefitzpatrick great tweet there, spot on in my opinion.

“Mayo ladies saying their unhappiness with manager affected their mental health is an example of the dangerous blurred line between the emotion of depression and the illness.
I'm sure everyone feels depressed at times. Confusing that with the illness is irresponsible and ignorant”
