Nadim7 daysRest and much more stretching seemed to help. The rest included sleep. My weight seemed to gain when I lacked sleep. The added weight puts strain on my whole body. Some of this was likely linked to my back problems. details

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

riley mcfarlane 8 daysIt was just DOMS. I finally figured after exams I should start a thing called R E C O V E R Y R U N S. Now that I actually can be bothered to get up hopefully DOMS won't last as long until I'm in my late 30's.details

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
nmulder10 daysMay have occurred during a MTB ride. Probably a result of hip imbalance again. Saw the chiro again, which appeared to help. Lack of gym work may have also contributed.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

CHARLIE-B28 daysdetails
haydensmith28 daysThis seemed to creep up on me slowly, where I didn't notice until it got worse. Probably due to lack of rest, although I was diligent with stretching. Eventully went to physio, which helped a lot. Taped it before XC races, and by the last one, didn't have any discomfort at all.details

HitnHope30 daysThe stretching (2x30 sec each side twice a day) has helped loosen the hamstrings and improved my speed and endurance considerably. Intend to continue the stretches indefinitely.

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

Shminty39 daysPhysio, stretching, nerve release, exercisesdetails
MeanGene39 daysLast went to Rob Jones (ART) and get his treatment and exercises to stretch the side hip muscles. Those tight muscles forced the hamstring to overstretch and the cause for the strain. Within 4 days, he recommended I run. First Galloway 60/30 run/walk intervals, then on 10/5 - 100%. OK.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

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

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

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
mikeminium50 daysAfter MRI etc, they're not really sure why it was so debilitating. I think the original injury was caused by pulling heavy picnic tables by myself for the New Year's Day event; I had some soreness the next day; got progressively worse until it gave out when I tried to race on the 9th. But whatever it was, it healed pretty quickly. Definitely need to do more regular stretching and strengthening exercises.details
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
tp51 daysI'll credit the hamstring curls with the exercise ball, and perhaps taking shorter steps when running. Also did various obvious stretches, gently.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

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

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
Trav60 daysBeing super careful with L5 which was likely herniated. ART with Eric Olympico. Pretty good diagnostician.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
GM76 daysdetails
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

HitnHope113 daysTrauma caused it due to careless running. It's more or less healed so I'm back to full training, but the hamstring is significantly weaker and needs a lot of work strengthening it. details
HitnHope114 daysFinally, nearly a year after the injury. Taking two weeks out made a huge difference. The fact that I was skiing seems to have been beneficial in that the other muscles in my legs were getting a balanced workout. Am now stretching the hams after every run. Cycling is good if it starts to ache from too much running. details
