RASPUTIN1 daysI guess it was just post long trail run tightness.details

Snailspace1 daysPain gone next day - no running so rest has eased it. Probably caused by running too fast too soon on Friday and running again on Saturday. I need to pace my running sessions more.details

tecnubush2 daysI think the 10 hour drive on fri, short rest and 10mile run created the pain in hamstring. Used foam eoller for two days and pain subsided. details

CHARLIE-B5 daysI think too much sugar (Gu) caused the cramp. Hot whirlpool bath every morning with the jets on the affected area seemed to do a lot. details
Sergey6 daysAt our age we should be more careful about running, running fast, and running viciously :) Seriosuly speaking, it was probably bad combination of luck, rocky surface, and jumping down with spiked shoes.details

beeker7 daysRest from running fast. Intervals, sprints etc are especially are the killer. Should have been a bit more careful with cycling as with clipped in shoes there is a bit more strain on it.details
Bruce7 daysrest and bike riding. Gave the hamstring and core muscles time to settle down.details

Bridge7 daysI think I'm recovered. Got better probably because I couldn't go hard-core since I was sick.details

nealont18 daysdetails
mpeinado8 daysI think I was running too much and the long run made my hamstring really tired. Playing basketball and not warming up for the intervals is what caused the injury. I need to strengthen my hamstrings and warmup properly before a hard workout. details

Torio9 daysdetails
errolpit9 daysdetails
wilsmith10 daysNot sure on the cause - maybe neglecting my strength training for a couple of weeks contributed to it???? No magic in the recovery - just rest and a (very little) vitamin I.details
D.Keyser10 daysBiked every day for about 45 minutes. Iced every night. Stretched and Pilates to loosen muscle up before icing. Not running for a few days helped greatly. Slow jog on Thursday was good way to welcome the leg back to running.details
Swisscheese10 daysWhen a muscle is not functioning properly and hurts clearly. Take a total rest, and start running until the physio says it is ok... in this case I actually thought it wasn't good yet... but the physio was right.details
runonthefly10 daysNeed more yoga; didn't do this a lot in the last month; should probably ease into something like this.details

Ollie12 daysRested for two weeks, with just a couple of runs - stiffened up after the first one, but felt better after the second one. Yet to run on it to prove it's healed, though.details
balcius12 daysI guess I needed more time to recover after Igtisa race. Lots of work at the comapny and intense training. A strange thing but some special oil helped me out a lot. I will ask for more of it.details

Nadim12 daysI kept from extending it but kept exercising to keep the blood flow going. I did stretch most days too; usually after exercising or in elevators. details

Urban14 days16th April - R.Hamstring has been feeling ok during stretches, no more tight than I'd ordinarily expect it to be when uninjured. I've had 7 days complete rest and so I thought an EASY "run" would be ok, but if it didn't feel right I'd turn around and come straight back in - which is what I should have done last Tuesday before Champagne League! No immediate after affects - i.e. very tight R.Calf / Hamstring / Glute discomfort. STRETCH (probably ice later as well!). There was a little disco...details

Stayed away from anything that would aggravate it (running, excessive stretching) and worked on lengthening and getting out knots and getting blood into it. details

graeme31 daysannoying for a month, but never really came to muchdetails
KingTim31 daysIt's hard to tell if this is truly recovered, but it's certanly not giving me any trouble now. Saw Chris Reynolds twice for a 30 minute massage. He recommended I go back before the marathon for another session to loosen the legs up again.details
LCoughlan31 daysgive it time !!!!!details
fkawam31 daysCause..see above.....probably would have lasted for a shorter time with more rigour in re-hab stretching and pool running in 3rd-4th week..Keeping hamstring overwarm in rehab stages while running good...Don't do hard workouts in the winter without extra warm legs and on days where there was poor sleep the night before.....Continuing icing stretching/strengthing routine...especially dynamic PNF stretchingdetails

BruceMeier33 daysI think it's ok now and I'm ready for O event on Sunday. Right leg hamstring is still a niggle, which predates this injury. Keep stretching and strengthening them...details

Clone40 daysrestdetails
graeme40 daysEnforced rest due to breaking a collarbone seemed to fix it. Not a treatment I'd use again.details
Andrew Feucht41 daysWent to PT 4 times following the first 9 days of the injury. Should have gone to PT sooner. Active recovery is the new name of the game on hamstring pulls. PT was the best and helped me recover. I was running moderately within 4-5 weeks of the injury and full speed ahead within 9-10 weeks of injury. Super Happy!details
nhrivard41 daysIt just got better.details
RASPUTIN42 daysdetails
gas_turbine42 daysdetails
MeanGene43 daysActive release technique with Dr Mark DeCourcy in KC rather than just Ron Jones in Lawrence (slightly different approach to ART). Everyone including family doctor says I need to stretch the legs and loosen up.details
SoloCoyote43 daysstretching and core workouts combined. Stretching helps tremendously on day to day stuff, but core workouts are what is knocking it out. Not totally resolved, but very closedetails
sten43 daysdetails
helehan43 daysdetails
Bridge43 daysCause: stress on back What seemed to help: not lugging around a 50 lb backpack for a weekdetails
graeme44 days3 sessions of Physio, lots of stretching and firing exercise. Something called a "core" has been invented since I last went. (I think it's bum and tummy) "Resume gentle jogging" - short course at the six day. got better during the week. Maybe it was just rested long enough, maybe running with something else to think about. Still not 100% though, so maybe shouldnt be writing this...details
GeneO44 daysIt started to died away slowly from early March. I could still feel the popping when Im doing the exercises that the phsio gave me. Im training hard and its going away =Ddetails

andypat48 daysdetails
iainw48 daysPhysio said due to weak quads/tight hips. Went away more or less on its own, though continued crab walks and hamstring curls (less regularly), plus a bit more regular hip flexor stretching...details
HitnHope49 daysProbably overtraining. I've tried to mix the training and not push too hard Physio has helped a lot massaging the lumps, and did a strenuous run today with no ill-effects. Took a while to get rid of but was never severe. Both hamstrings still tight - trying to loosen them with Pilatesdetails
sberg50 daysMassage and stretching helped more than rest. Need to stretch more!details
artsosa50 daysdetails
kurthu51 daysdetails
Nadim51 daysIt slowly got better. Though things felt like a pulled hamstring, the medical diagnosis was Lumbar Radiculopathy. Making this resolution entry after the fact, I guess my body re-routed the nerves after my disc herniation and a piece breaking off between L4/L5, then getting lodged in my spinal column squeezing the spinal cord. details
Rosco52 daysstretching is an integral part of trainingdetails
Thoto52 daysdetails
MeanGene53 daysdetails
workouttexas54 daysDo more hamstring exercises in buildup to marathon.details
Nadim55 daysThe tightness is mostly gone. I think just giving it time helped more than anything. I didn't stretch much after a few rounds of it seemed to aggrivate it. I rested it a lot too, mostly for reasons other than to let it heal. details

Thoto57 daysPause, Physio ... Einklemmen des Nervs in der Leistengegend durch Oberschenkelmuskel.details
Charlie57 daysI'll mark this down as recovered, although it is still not 100%. Critical treatment that has allowed me to run again is wrapping it every time with a rather stout adjustable neoprene wrap. A lot of support and warmth, and reasonably comfortable by now. I expect to wear the wrap at least for the next three to four weeks.details
kwruck58 daysdetails
stever58 daysdetails
Eug59 daysdetails
dancarter59 daysI think it was caused by running too hard, too soon in colder weather. I took a month off completely from running with short hikes, walking and biking. Slowly started running short distances and stopping if the pain came back. Good warm ups are key.details
MeanGene59 daysDr. Rob Jones says older runners end up with weak glutes because running involved only forward motion and not using muscles if you went side to side like other sports. That put all the workload on the hamstrings. Strengthen the glutes and future running would be back to using all the muscles. details
HitnHope60 daysAfter the marathon, probably the least painful part of my legs. Wondering if it was in my head to stop me overtraining.details
stever60 daysWell, it will let me go 3-5 miles now. Still a bit iffy, but we'll call it "better". Jeff recommended some exercises. Somehow need to find the discipline to do them. details
JohnT61 daysStretching lying on floor, leg pulled back to chest some pressure on by other person. x3 30 sec 3 times a daydetails
mayer2261 daysProbably could have switched to heating to help get rid of blood but heating is what helped cause this whole mess. Be more careful with heating injuries. Ice for the first 24-48 hours and then start heating.details
gas_turbine62 daysLong term easy running, Yoga. It may come back with speed work in the spring. Knock wood on that.details

crusher75 daysDon't know exactly when this went away. I forget to log in the injury section, which is a good thing. "Treatment" for my twitchy hammy consisted mostly of being careful about warming up before quick efforts, and also some foam-rolling and massage.details

Bruce76 daysI got the results of my MRI last night. It says that I do have oestitis pubis, and a small 8mm tear in the left adductor tendon that joins onto the pubic bone. Given that I have been in no pain for almost 3 weeks now, the doctor is not going to intervene. However, if I have another set back then he would like to treat me to improve my recovery. Hopefully I am already on the road to recovery and the worst is over, but if there are any setbacks, at least I know what is wrong and can...details

wilsmith81 daysUnsure of the cause, although either the NavStock Sprint or else the NavStock Raid would seem to be the likely culprits. Nagged me a looooong time. Probably not 100% recovered yet, but will call it so just to not have the injury coloring on the log any more. Must be 95% back anyway - only pain with hard exertion at the moment.details

gas_turbine89 daysNever truly recovered, but pop in L hamstring makes this one irrelevant for now. doing low forward Yoga lunges seems to help (keep body low, rather than taking it up - like in a sprinter stance).details
graeme90 daysStretching, but just took a while and isn't really right even when closing this off.details
Hilary91 daysnow having spent a lot of money on the physio this turns out to have been more of a back injury and lack of response of the core muscles. This means I have to maintain a schedule of regular core strength exercises and maintain it....always!details

Will see Jeff 1x week for next 2-3 weeks before LT100. 10/26: Re-injured hamstring multiple times on track workouts and other sprints. Focusing on strength work and cross-work to heal completely. 12/3: Saw Debra Gillis DPT @ CSSC, final diagnosis is upper hamstring tear near tendon connections; therapy is dry needl...details
dcady289 daysThis issue hasn't gone away completely but I can live with it as it is. It might always be a little weak but it doesn't seem to affect my running any more, nor my ability to do leg presses at the gym. I don't think about it much. It is only sore first thing in the morning as I sit for breakfast. Some things you just live with.details
Doris296 daysI'm going to mark this as resolved even though I can still feel gentle tugs when I tire. No lessons - just feel old and I think it will never be the same again.details

Yvonne1140 daysRight now, I'm putting this one to rest. I don't believe I am completely recovered -- because I do think this is a chronic condition. But the good news is that I think it is manageable through consistent strength/stretch work and careful training practices.details
