Tight Hamstring

I had set out for 8-10 miles this morning, but cut it short. Right hamstring was feeling pretty tight again and after the first mile, I sensed it would be a good idea to not go the distance. Stopping to stretch it helped some, but wasn't enough, unlike the other day. Turning around was the right call. Will RICE it and evaluate it on a daily basis. Don't think this is too big of a deal though, but still a bit frustrating. I want to run, dammit!

Ran 2.9 miles @ 7:51/mile pace
AHR/MHR - 146/163
Paved roads.
Slightly hilly.
Lower 60s, misting, overcast.
Shorts, short sleeved shirt.

Bummer. Hope the hamstring loosens up soon so you can get back to running!

Good call on cutting it short. Hope the RICE takes care of it.
