  1. RUN
    good Hills of Hemptown 3.25 mi 00:36 11:04 pace

    Yes! Pain free run, more or less - I stopped shortly after the pain started - but 3.25 miles, no walking, that feels great. But it's not 6.22, so I'm not getting overconfident. The only d... read more

    This swimming is heaven on the hammy. I kept looking for that cold beer but it never showed up tonight. Ah, well. Good swim nevertheless.

  3. RUN
    good Big Creek Greenway 2.5 mi 00:32 12:48 pace

    2.5 miles - that's an increase of 25% over yesterday. I love statistics! Another hot afternoon outing, more running, less walking, felt great to be out there. Hammy about the same.

      Holly, I did something to it in a race about two weeks ago. Stretched, pulled, whatever- it's not right. Trying to rehab it.

    Swimming was great for my leg after the slow run. I could have stayed in the water a little longer, but a cold beer showed up at poolside.

      I think in this situation a DNF is very smart. You want to be a runner forever not just for that race. Ice for the first 48 hours, heat after 48 hours, tiger balm, gentle massage,and compression - ACE bandage works the best because you can adjust the pressure . Test the hamstring by walking hills before you try to run.
