A Little Running, Interesting Blog Post

Week of July 23 ~ 29

Did a little running this week, but not much. 5 x 1k with walks in between on Monday, 4x on Wednesday and about 7x in the beach town of Kamakura on Saturday. Doing my best to run at 180 steps per minute, and in fact ran Mon and Wed holding the iPhone (metronome app), so managed to do so. I also tried to focus on proper midfoot striking, causing my calf to get a bit sore on Wednesday, thus proving that I had not been doing it properly before.

Also went to the gym on Tuesday and Friday, and of course am doing my physio exercises every day. Went to the physio again on Wednesday, and she gave me 3 new exercises to do, so I hope they work!

Read a very interesting blog post on competitor.com (Staff blog by Linzay Logan - Lessons Learned from a Running Injury). Interesting because the injury she describes is EXACTLY what happened to me. Pain in glutes - kept running - pain in hamstring - kept running - thought it might be piriformis or bursitis - ran a few races - pain finally got so bad had to stop. Well, she had an MRI and found out that she had torn her hamstring - but not all at once, little by little. I'm positive that this is exactly what happened to me. Read the article - it has some good advice.
The good thing is, she's running again! This too, shall pass.

Good running to you all.


  1. Interesting. In that blog she doesn't say exactly what form the 'aggressive PT' took. So do you just tell the physio that it's exactly the same injury? Almost torn off the bone sounds serious! Does the hamstring just reattach itself? I know Nathan Deakes had hamstring surgery to attach a torn hamstring. Hope that's not neccessary.
