Hey I've just started training for a 10k at the end of May. I know it's early, but i'd actually like to be doing a little more than 10k by the time the race comes. I don't really have a training plan, all the ones i have looked at online don't really suit me! At the moment, i'm doing 1mile on a Tue and Thu morning before work, and 2miles on a Saturday. My Tue run i'm going to keep as a shorter one throughout the training, Thu i want to be doing some interval training, and Sat will be my longer run. Obvioulsy i'll be upping the mileage as time goes on.
I planned on doing 2 and a half miles this Sat, but i think i've pulled my hamstring! It doesn't hurt when i run (yes, i stupidly went out yesterday when it was sore ) but obviously it's aggrivating it as it's worse today.
My question is, should i stretch it while i'm out of action, and how long should i rest it for roughly?
I have run (a bit pathetically!) on and off for the last 10 or so years, never getting above 4miles as i got bored or something came up, but now i have something to look forward to and actually train for, i'm getting so into it and really enjoying it, i'm totally gutted i've injured myself!
Any replies would be much appreciated, thanks in advance, and hi from a newbie!
