IMG_3982.JPGUgh, I think I may have pulled my hamstring the other night! I felt a twinge up the back of my leg while I was running and decided to cut my run short. When I got home I iced my hamstring right away, and then took yesterday off. It feels better today but after a low impact aerobics class it’s still a little tight. I’m going to take it easy for the next few days and stretch so hopefully I’ll be ready for Sundays War at the Shore Triathlon (my last of the season, then I’m putting my bathing suit away until next summer). I also grabbed some Epsom salt from the store to toss into the bathtub. And now I’m off to my first PTO meeting at the elementary school.
