Hi there, what to do!! Been running 5k 3 x a week for a year now, then signed up for a 10k, ran a PB for distance (8k) and then 3 days later got a PB over 5k. Felt bloody marvelous. Then went out 2 days after that to do done speed work - the minute I upped the pace I felt my hamstring pull. Tried to run through it and it got tighter so I stopped. Then I ran again 2 days after that (some bad advice from my marathon running sister in law). It felt great for the first 4.5 k then kind of popped. It doesn't hurt but I can feel it's not right. I stretch religiously after a run but not before - guess I need to add that in? And how do I know it's ok to run again? Any good stretches for beforehand? Thanks in advance
