The coach couldn’t believe the time displayed on the stopwatch so he made me run it again. I ran it again. At the end of the 2nd 40 yd dash my quad and ham tighten up suddenly. Time for victories. 8 Victories (200m sprints) later, my leg is on fire.
2 DAYS later, here i am, the pain seems to have moved up my quad to my hip flexor and i can’t run faster than a quick burst or a steady jog without burning pain. I know soreness and i know muscle damage. This isn’t soreness. The question is, how do i proceed now? Ice? Stretch? Massage? Contrast Bathes? I’ve been doing those. I would really like an estimate of how long this should take to recover even if it isn’t accurate within 1 week…
Should i get this checked out by a phys therapist? (This would be inconvenient so don’t immediately suggest this unless you think it really necessary). Any advice is much appreciated.
