I ran an easy 45 minutes today and threw in several striders along the way. My left hamstring definitely tightened up during the strides telling me that I have what one of my running friend's likes to call "a situation".
I seem to be okay when I run easy so that's what I'll be doing until I get over this bump in the road.
I am icing, judiciously taking ibuprofen and using my secret sauce as a leg rub.
It pays to back off at the first sign of an injury. I didn't do that. I should have stopped during the first 800 on Sunday. Right then. Just stopped and jogged.
Loss of down, two week penalty which means no testing it during that time period.
