Hamstring Update


My Dr. just called with my MRI results from Monday.  I DID NOT tear any muscle like they originally thought.     I just have hamstring tendinitis. 

"Hamstring tendonitis is a condition characterized by tissue damage and inflammation to one or more of the hamstring tendons. This occurs at their attachment to the top of the lower leg causing pain in the back of the knee."

I am SO excited.  This is really great news.  I have to keep resting it and popping pills for maybe a few more weeks then I can RUN again! 

I am just so happy to have this news. I never realized how IMPORTANT working out is to me.  I HAVE to have it in my life. Without it I am just an unhappy girl.

I can't wait to get back into my routine!

  1. Yay!!! That is so awesome. I was so worried for you! I'm glad that nothing is torn. Certainly not glad that you are injured (dur) but it's great that it isn't as bad as what was originally thought!!! YAY!
