Bru-BruI seem to have developed a mild tweaky pain deep in the big muscle at the back of the thigh, about half way up. I have noticed it when running over the last couple of weeks and also, slightly, when just walking. Is this a sign that the hamstring is likely to "go" or is it likely to get much worse if put under greater strain? I have been doing runs of no longer than 6m over the last few weeks other than a VERY gentle long run of 18m and came through these quite OK but have a slightly hilly mara planned for a weeks' time. Should I a) rest it, b) carry on with the gentle exercise/shorter runs through the taper period and give it more of a go for the race, or c) just tell it to shut up and get back in its box?

becca7Get a sports massage - that might sort out the niggle.

SODIron © 2002sounds like a low-grade strain to me....but I'm no expert.
As suggested by Becca above I'd start with a sports massage and take it from there...if you are in any doubt you should seek proper medical advice (rather than a website forum) as running on it could cause potential further damage.
