On the mend! Well, the leg is finally, finally getting better. With Dr. Houssain back in town, he was able to view my MRI and see that the hamstring was looking good. This led to the recommendation of a couple of glut stretches/exercises as well as a foam wedge to sit on at work. I realize this sounds a bit bizarre, but hey, it works! And if sitting on a piece of foam is what it takes to keep my butt from hurting, then so be it!
So, looking forward, this week will start the reincorporation of some legs workouts, mainly water running and road biking. I'd say I'm looking further ahead, but considering how long this injury has lingered, I'm not ready to make any assumptions about it being totally gone. With that having been said, though, I dont think it is totally out of the question to rule out racing again this year.
