Stretching before jogging

I am new to jogging/running. I've noticed that I'm having a little bit of pain in the tendon from the upper inside thigh to the groin area. But only on my left side. Is there a stretch that I'm missing?

I don't know why you're having that pain. You can try stretching, but if that doesn't work, then you probably ought to speak with your doctor. You can go to www.exrx.net for stretches for all muscles. Here are some links to stretch the inner thigh http://drbenkim.com/how-stretch-inner-thigh-groin.htm http://sportsmedicine.about.com/od/flexibilityandstretching/qt/Groin_Stretch.htm but And you can check the WebMD symptom checker http://symptoms.webmd.com/default.htm but again, if it continues, you should speak with your doctor. Don't work through pain. Good luck.
