Earlier this week I ran for 25 minutes and Laura told me I'm a runner. But now I'm hobbling about wonderng when I can run next.
I've had twinges of pain in soft tissue at the back of my knee and after wk6 r3 that became more constant. So I headed out yesterday to do a shorter run - one ofo the ones with 10mins x 2. By halfway trhough the second run it was really painful so I stopped and walked home really feeling like I'd come crashing down.
Having looked online I think it's my hamstring - so dosing up on ibuprofen which is helping. When I've been sitting for a while it's really painful to stand on it - although that adjusts to allow me to walk reasonably well.
So I'm going to have to give it a rest for a few days - on the grounds of more haste may mean less speed. Has anyone else had a hamstring injury - and any thoughts on how you know when a small injury is better? I need advice from other runners
