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!
