Monday: No running. Does sledding down my driveway count as cross training?
Tuesday: 1.3 miles (7:47). Hamstring tendon was super tight and was only getting progressively worse.
Wednesday: Day Off.
Thursday: 3.1 miles (7:23). Started out the same as last time but it wasn't getting progressively worse. At around three miles, the hamstring muscle itself completely revolted and it became pretty painful. I also had to walk the last 1/3 of a mile home in 10 degree weather.
Friday: No running. Saw Dr. Kindred so I could get my hamstring looked at on the ultrasound. He said it was a strain in the muscle, which caused some tendinitis near the insertion. Got a massage and the guy really worked on my hamstring. He also really needed to cut his nails.
Saturday: No running.
Sunday: 4.5 miles (7:10)
Week Total: 8.9 miles. Lowest mileage week in forever. Well, I did only run 3.7 miles the first week of last May. Most of this past week, I felt like this was going to linger around for quite some time, and potentially end my spring campaign but I now feel like it's getting a little bit better. Hopefully I can start some consistent jogging towards the end of the week.
