A week completely off from running, some icing, lots of tennis ball massage, a steady stream of Aleve and a doctor’s appointment scheduled and then cancelled have all added up to my hamstring feeling much better.
Just four miles and I know that the steady stream of Aleve could be masking the issue, but still I am hopeful!
I need my morning runs in the woods.
The sun! It’s been way too long since I’ve seen the sun.
Chilly and rainy. It was one of those mornings when running in the rain is kind of fun. Not splashing in puddles fun, but mildly enjoyable.
DNF at Promise Land 50k on Saturday.
Not a surprise, but still a huge disappointment.
The early miles of climbing aggravated my hamstring and I knew that the more I pushed it, the longer it would take to heal. So at the second aid station, I told the volunteers that I was dropping.
It was a long, cold, depressing 9 mile walk back to the start.
