Having completed week 7 last Friday (14th), was feeling well on track for a 5k event in June. Ran on Sunday at greatlocalrun 2k, finished ok, drove home and stepped out of car in agony. Hamstring seemed to have gone completely rigid !
Have improved since and can walk fine now, have even managed to do some yoga and pilates (badly). Have bought a foam roller and even managed a dance class.
But I cannot run at all, even a few steps and the muscle behind my knee starts screaming. Feels as though my leg has no bounce at all and the impact is going straight to the back of the knee.
Have booked a physio appointment for Monday and hope he can steer me in the right direction.
Really want to get back running, something I would never have believed I would ever say before I began.
Has anyone else come back after hamstring/popliteal injury ? really would like to hear some good news.
