S: 38,100 yds

More swimming, similar hamstring pain, and still no training. Things were trending better, but have now frustratingly seemed to stall. In response, I talked to a PT in the area who used to work on the training staff at USC (South Carolina, not Southern Cal).  He recommended a light warm up then light stretching then icing.  I am also trying Muscle Activation Technique (MAT) therapy, per a recommendation from a reader, Alan.  So although things are a bit stagnant at the moment, I'm cautiously optimistic that this time next week I'll have some better news!

It may be a good idea to give ART a try if you have not yet. Best of luck and wishing for a fast recovery.

Thanks dude. Yeah, I had been seeing an ART practitioner, and we finally seemed to turn the page last week.
