ATTN Runners: When you're low from a high hamstring strain..
If you're like most every runner that I've ever met, when you get aches and pains, you don't stop. You push thru, hobble, maybe taking a few days to rest, and then return to running to find your pain not really any better.
This is very true of runners who have high hamstring pain, from a high hamstring strain.
"But I just don't want to think about this pain any more," you say to yourself.
But you also say, "I don't want to worry about hurting myself more. I can take pain, but I don't want to make it worse.”
Well, here's what I would do to you, and how you can help fix your high hamstring pain:
