A quick update post. After doing 14 miles on Sunday, I took Mon off (my usual rest day) and then did 6 miles Tuesday. The hamstring felt sore afterwards (even though I don't feel like I pushed too hard), so I took Wednesday off and today (Thursday) I am going to cross train on the weights. Hopefully tomorrow I can get back on the road.
My mileage last week and this week have been lower than I would like (less than 30 miles), given where I am in my training program. Still, I have some room in the schedule to build up to where I need to be. I am just over 9 weeks away from MCM. I am supposed to do a 20 mile run this weekend, but with the sore hammy, I am wondering if I should ease back in and maybe do another 13-15 miler and give it a go next weekend.
I feel like this is not a severe injury, and that if I don't push too hard I can overcome it fairly quickly. Meanwhile I am massaging it and doing gentle stretches.
Anyone with other advice on this topic feel free to weigh in.
