REALLY stupid question...

This is very likely one of the dumbest questions I've ever asked...you've been warned.

 

Is it possible to pull a stomach muscle, if so, can it happen while running?  My abs feel like they were torn apart and have become increasingling more painful as the day has progressed.  I noticed that the pain started after a three mile run Saturday.  Yes, I'm in marginally crappy shape but have lost nearly 100 lbs and have been going to the gym regualrly (but not for the last week and a half).

 

Ok, please stop laughing now and share your thoughts.

    No reason why not. Google abdominal muscle pull.  There is also a possibility of a hernia.  Might be worth a doctor visit to be sure.

    Sure.  I did it jumping in an exercise class, took 2 months to fully heal.  You can get these little micro tears in the wall fairly easy, or it can be more serious.  Of course., it could be more serious issue for you than an abs tear, as the poster above suggests.  In my case running was no problem during recovery, it was everythings else that casued pain.  Have it checked out.
