I start this post with something I didn't do! For months I have had a niggling right leg. It's either been my glute, my hamstring, my hip bursa or all three! But still I have kept training and kept entering events.
The final straw came when I had a small trip in my walk, I caught my toe on the pavement and fell forward at pace. This resulted in me really over stretching the hamstring and it went ping.
I gave myself a week off before testing it at the track with a gentle 5000m... but it was still hurting center and high on the hamstring. So off to physio I went.
He laughed at my one week rest...😩... how rude! Lol .... and said it takes 3 or 4 weeks rest. Sigh.
So, I have a small tear in my hamstring (grade 1) and I'm on 3 weeks no walking and 1 week no excersise at all.......I'm not liking this. But next week I will try out the pool and see if I can swim a little. I will also start using our home gym and try to find a pre beginner yoga to follow 😁
So, that's what's been going on with me!
