Tempo Run


My hamstring issue is NOT resolved. I geared up and headed to the top of the bridge for a little stretch. As soon as I started running, the left hamstring tightened and signaled extreme pain. I tried to trot it out a bit - but the pain was such that I was limping more than running.

Since riding my bike didn't have an adverse effect, that's the plan for this week. Tuesday upper body weights, and Thursday Yoga as usual, cycling for the cardio. Runner's World says "ice for 20 minutes 3x's a day and rest. Hamstring strains take 1-3 weeks to heal." Neat. ELEVEN WEEKS till the Bill Seymour Half Marathon. I hope I'm ready!
