damn man wtf. that really sux that it tweaked when racing your daughter, of all things.

hoping it heals up quick.


Not yesterday when it happened or the day before but yes they are routinely in my programming.

FWIW I don't think anything could have prevented this. I was done with my sprint work and my daughter wanted to race me lol so one more I did. The foot strike was just weird. Idk if it caught the grass weird or what but it was an instant pop on the foot strike.

Was able to get into the PT this morning before work. Looks like it's a small tear about 4" above the knee so not near any muscle belly insertion point (good I think?) and on the middle band of muscle (there's 3/4? muscles to the hamstring). We ran through some tests to check flexibility (not much lol) then did some a stim to break down the fibers in the right direction and some cold electro therapy to stimulate some healing. Finished with some dry needling (FUCKIN HATE) to relax the nerve bundles and that made it FEEL a ton better. Now at work and the ibuprofen is wearing off its much more tender. 3 more PT sessions next week and we're reevaluating. Fingers crossed.

.....guess who just got cleared to start BW only exercises?!?! I still have some bruising but no pains. Occasionally it's tight at the end of a stretch and the muscle will "twitch" and it's weak trying to catch loads butthe pt said I can start really slow tempo work to gain some strength back.

HELL YES.

Absolutely gonna try. To keep myself from being, well, myself, I'm going with a couple buddies on Monday after work. They'll literally remove me from the gym if necessary lol
