Damn hammy

Another day, another injury. Seriously. Now my hamstring is acting up. (Same leg as my calf problems).

I don't know what's going on - because I have been told by my running "coach" and a biomechanics guy that my running form is good. So - what's the deal with my freakin' bod??

Anyway, to counter the strains and pulls and all that, I'm going to try something new. I'm heading to yoga tonight. Ommmmmmmmmmm...

I've tried yoga in the past and I have to admit - I'm not really into it. During my first experience with it, we were told to chant. Um... yeah. I felt slightly ridiculous chanting. To all who like to chant - more power to you! I'm just not a chanter. Also, I hate going barefoot at the gym for several reasons: Reason 1 - dirty gym floors. Ew. Reason 2 - I have winter feet. My tootsies are not "prepped" to be bare yet. Reason 3 - dirty gym floors. Really grosses me out seeing someone else's hair stuck on the bottom of my foot.

Anyway, that aside, I have a feeling the stretching and lengthening of my muscles (and the building of my core strength) will be nothing but good for me. So I'm going to test it out. I'll let you know how it goes.



  1. Damn hippies... No shoes and all this chanting garbage :)

    Feel better! It sucks your leg is hurting again cause I know how much you love to run!

  2. What about pilates? I don't think there's chanting in pilates. :-) Hope your leg feels better!!
