“bingo…your hamstring tendon? Overspeed tears up the insertion area and has screwed my athletes career thanks to a coach that has no clue what he is doing.”
Re the above, I’m a 33 yr old triple jumper who did most of his training throughout the winter in the gym but with the season approaching upped my track work considerably. I then noticed after sprint sessions pain in my left hamstring/buttock area, right at the top of the leg which hurt when I “drove” off it – ie sprinting. I’ve seen a physio and although difficult to isolate exactly where it hurts, he thinks I’ve pulled the tendon at the top of the hamstring. It’s taking an age to heal and very difficult to massage etc. Is this what you were referring to in the quote above and how long do you think before it heals and am going to be able to sprint??
