I can walk without pain, though I still feel the pull slightly in my right groin area. After a restless night, I'm glad things are healing. Laying there last night, I had a hard time falling asleep, with every move sending pain up my leg.

Tia gave me Aleve at bedtime, which I'm guessing kicked in at some point. I'm not a big drug fan, and I don't think of taking any, but I know that low doses can help.

The plan is to run soon, but I'm thinking to go with the old PT routine that I used with my shoulder. I'll put the heating pad on it for 15-20 minutes, then take it easy on exercise, and then ice it afterwards. That is what worked well for my shoulder, and it's what I read on a few sites. I did a little Internet research, for what that's worth, and most sites said the same RICE technique. Rest, ice, compression, elevation. I did that yesterday and then I'll do it again today, skip karate, jog easy, and then try to slowly increase activity on Wed.

I hope to be ready for Sun to play baseball again. Facing my own team, and I want to be able to play hard, though not straining.
