The DiagnosisSo, this is the follow up to the doctor’s appointment I had last week. Here’s the diagnosis. It’s official that I pulled my right hamstring. Bummer! So I was told that I can’t do any high impact sports for two weeks. So this means no running, jumping, dancing etc.
And now I have to do physical therapy for four weeks. Don’t, get me wrong I am happy that there is a way to fix this and I don’t have to get surgery but I miss running already, I miss jumping around all day. But yesterday was my first session and I did a series of leg exercises, it didn’t bother my leg too much and so that was a plus. What I didn’t like was the office seemed very busy and the doctors were all over the places, dealing with other duties, ex: updating files. Other than that, it was a good first day. I’m hoping these exercises are going to make my legs stronger overall and in turn a stronger runner.
What are my workout options now? Yoga and strength training, those are the only things I can think of right now. I have to hone in on my eating since I won’t be burning as much calories for the next week and a half. But after that time, man its back to running, seeing as I already got my new two races figured out!
