    Re: Hamstring

    I tried a very slow, gentle mile on the flat last night, with no stretching first. No trouble from the hamstring at that pace, but I need to keep self-disciplined and stay slow for at least another week or so. I'm going out in a minute to have another walk/jog.
    Hope your hamstring feels OK in the morning, PB.

    Re: Hamstring

    as mike t said you should never do static stretching of muscles before a race or anytime. do dynamic stretches to warm up properly and make sure you stretch down after exercise.
    dont know where im going, dont know where ive been, all im doing is running, running to have fun.

    Formal dynamic stretching is of course done in slow motion.

    I always thought getting a massage from a lady called Candice would be an altogether more pleasurable experience..!
    Was reading through this thread after a minor strain at bottom of left hamstring but which hasn't affected my running thankfully. Anyway I had to chuckle at PB's comment here as my physio at Horsforth Sports Injury Clinic http://www.physioworld.co.uk/ is 'a lady called Candice' and has recently regularly given me a massage - calf massage guys!!! as well as ultrasound, laser & acupuncture treatment for achilles issues.

    Re: Hamstring

    Hi MT and all, I've got another injury now which happened a while ago and won't go away. I'd just about got over the hamstring and was building back up again, lost a couple of stone and then tripped and did something else to the back of my leg. It doesn't feel like the hamstring injury did so I don't think it's that; from reading about it, it sonds like a sciatic thing, or piriformis. a dull ache, numbness in the leg, and pain when running - sometimes worse than others to the point where I can't run without hobbling. Not good, it's been dragging on a bit now too.
    I can't afford to keep going private to my girl Candice (:w00t:!) so I'm off to my GP in the hope that he'll refer me to a physio...

    Re: Hamstring

    Cheers DT, I'm thinking it's on the mend so fingers crossed I'll be back before long. Meanwhile, just a few tentative plods across the top of Ilkley Moor for me.
