Perpetual Sore Hamstring

Posted: 12/01/2014 at 12:11

I agree with Six Physio! This is what I had for the whole of last year... thought it was hamstring problem, but traditional HS stretches actually made it worse. I'm still unsure what is the actual cause, but I suspect piriformis (might be wrong). What has worked: lots of yoga, core strength and glute activation exercises, and building up running again VERY slowly. Good luck!

Go for it Lucy! I don't have kids, and have no plans to have any either, so I don't have any useful advice for you, only words of encouragement!

Is it me, or are mothers the most judged human beings on the planet?! Or is it just women in general?!

Happy running Lucy!

New Zealand Manuka Honey

Thanks Karen, very interesting! however, that doesn't convince me that it's anything more than a mild topical antimicrobial. Savlon is cheaper. 

Boots web MD isn't a scientific journal. I'll save my pennies until the Nature paper!

That is just some woman from the telegraph, who has been sent a few products containing manuka, and has been asked to write an article about it!

I'm not saying that honey isn't good for you... it probably is, but I'd want to see some hard evidence from a peer reveived scientific journal before I shelled out £11 for a pot.

They sometimes sell it quite cheap in Aldi, by the way

But it probably only works if it's the expensive one

Oh dear! Sounds like you may have an infection... get yourself to the doctors!

Kids and alcohol

I'm with EKGO! My parents let me go to stuff like this when I was that age, they trusted that they had brought me up with enough sense not too get into anything too dodgy! I'm not saying I was an angel, but they always knew where I was and came to pick me up. I never came home drunk (I saved that until I was in my 20s!).

If you trust her to be sensible, set out the ground rules and make it clear that if she doesn't stick to them it's game over for her social life!

Seren - I believe the government scrapped the EMA last year, unless they've reinstated it?

And there is nothing wrong with lego, I agree. It's quite expensive though

London Marathon Ballot system is a joke.
