Last Saturday while playing coed flag-football for a sports league here in Nashville I felt a sharp pain in my left hamstring. I tend to have a high threshold for a little pain, so I kept on playing nursing my left leg (jumping off of my right now). Well, after a complicated reverse to get a tackle caused another such pain to go through my right hamstring.
Thinking I could stretch them out, I sidelined myself and stretched a bit. Was a bit sore, but got back into the game.
We won 41 to 0 (a shutout).
Limping around we took the other team out for a few beers to calm the soreness. I got home, but was still in pain. I laid around resting for the night. Sunday I awoke to some horrible pain. "This can't be good", I thought. Limped in to see the PTs at the YMCA Monday and they assure me it's nothing torn, just a sever pull in both hamstrings.
Today after the current round of heat-n-stretching excersises, I noticed a little bruising-like colors on the back of one leg. After I was done witht he stretching I examed them in the mirror. OUCH. It's like someone took a baseball bat to the back of my legs!
I don't think I'll be playing this Saturday.
