Learned my hamstring problem in my right leg which has kept my walking down to a minimum over for the last few weeks is not a hamstring problem at all! When I've been walking I've slowed up as the pain started, to ease off and give it a chance. It never seemed to get better, although at the same time didn't get worse. When the pain started down my calf though, I seeked help. It seems now that it is a sciatic problem, and with manipulation, stretching, yoga and massage will right itself. This gave me an opportunity to get out and put a few miles on over the weekend, especially taking advantage of the mild spell, and with high water in Barrow during the early afternoon, I've been able to walk to work and back for the last three days, 60 plus miles altogether, metabolism kicking off again, a few pounds dropped that had crept on and feeling much better. Because I've just been doing gentle walking the muscles have had a much better rest than I would normally have allowed, which is an advantage. All the injuries I got over last summer, hamstrings, groin strain, abdominal and the blisters have pretty much healed, so gently picking up and strengthening again, hopefully learning from last years mistakes.
