My hammy still had discomfort. GRRRRRRR! So today I went to see my Chiropractor (OK...my neck and shoulders needed the Chiro as well after the 11 hour drive each way to Michigan!). He basically told me the same thing that the sports doc did - the injury is where the muscle meets the tendon. He did some electro-stim and trigger point work to get the blood flowing in that area. The back of my leg felt better this afternoon than it had for a while, so I think he's on to something. He wants me to come 3 times this week and 3 times next week to "attack" this area - I'm ready to try anything to get rid of this discomfort/pain! If the chiro doesn't work, I'll hit the physical therapy center in the same office building as the chiro - however, for some reason I think the chiro may do the trick (at least I hope!)
My plan for the rest of the week is to not run tomorrow (yoga? cross-train? plain ol' rest?), run on Wednesday, rest on Thursday and do the Autism Speaks 5K race on Friday morning. Perhaps I'll do a "long" run on Sunday - we'll see how I'm feeling hamstring-wise.
