>General Running>Ham string pull
Which is better, keep running even though it slows you down or take time off?
an amazing likeness
Time off until it is less than a grade 2 strain. That is time off from running, but keep up strength work and dynamic stretching. Use care, deal with it actively...hamstring issues can become chronic and never-ending. (or so it seems to this sufferer)
I've done my best to live the right way. I get up every morning and go to work each day. (for now)
I had a recent minor strain but really could not run with it. I needed 10 days of no running with some ramped up rehab to get back to 100%. I kept tweaking it when coming back too soon. You don't want this to be chronic. What are your symptoms and is it caused from running?
Those who try, fail! Those who do what it takes to succeed, succeed!!
It only hurts when running, bending forward, and sitting for long periods. I don't know if it is caused by running but I first noticed it while running. I ran/walked a half last week and it didn't make it worse or better.
Don't run. Stretch gently every day. Massages and chiropractic may help.

What about doing easy bike rides?
I'll try that this evening.
