I was supposed to start my marathon training on Monday, but I didn’t. My hamstring has still been hurting quite a bit. Sharp, shooting pain from the top of my left buttock down to my knee. Yesterday I did a lot of stretching and I must admit it hurt a lot less today. I’ll do some more stretching tonight and hopefully it will be good enough by this Friday that I can take a run and see how it goes. It’s driving me crazy to be sitting here getting fat while my muscles get soft.
