They say there is a fine line between insanity and genius and runners appear to be an example of a group that straddles that fence. Take me for example; this little hamstring injury has me hobbling along.
The genius in me says to take it easy and rest your hamstring. The body will heal its self. It just takes time.
While the other side says, no, now is the time to go out the door and get in those miles. You have a race and marathon coming up. You have to be ready.
I guess in this case I am leaning toward insanity.
I will ice my hamstring. Throw some Bio-Freeze at it before my run and tape up the hamstring.
Out the door, I went.
