Afternoon lovely runners
So here I am, two runs from graduation and on the "out injured" list for the time being. My leg still hurts so I can't even contemplate attempting any further runs at the moment, but I really want to!
I did something to my left knee in week 3, took an extra rest day and it was fine. I did something else to my left hip in week 6, again a bit of extra rest and taking it easy on my runs and it was fine within a week. Now I've done "something" to my left hamstring on W9R1, and I'm beginning to wonder when I'll be able to run on it again.
I managed to complete the 30 minutes but it hurt as soon as I slowed down and I limped home and had to get hubby to stretch my leg out in a footballer-sorting-out-extra-time-cramp stylie. It hurt a lot. This was on Monday morning. It gradually felt better and better and I woke up this morning with it feeling normal. I actually contemplated lacing up my trainers... but a quick 3-step trot across the garden with my toddler soon put paid to that idea
So, I'm a bit unsure when I'll be able to get back into my running. Leg is fine walking around, bending, twisting, going up and down stairs, and only mildly aches when I try any stretches or exercises. But any hint of running and it says "don't even think about it!"
Any tips / advice / wrods of wisdom?
