I visited the physio last week and she diagnosed me with a mild hamstring strain. She did some ultra sound and a massage and then applied some sports tape to the back of my leg and told me to wear the tape for 4 days and to not run for one week. I am going back to see her on Thursday.
My leg was definately feeling better and I felt I wanted to run, (I didn't)! I took the tape off yesterday but all day today I have felt a dull ache at the back of my knee and back of the leg. Is this normal? does the tape really work?.
Can anyone please give me some advise, I have a half marathon this Sunday and then London Marathon in April. How long does a mild hamstring take? Should I run the half on Sunday or give myself a bit longer to recover? I feel so annoyed with myself but don't want to do any further damage in case I run the risk of not being able to take part in the Marathon.
This is the first time I have ever had an injury from running!
