Iíve got a bit of a niggle after an interval run set yesterday, luckily itís recovery week so I only have one other short 35 min easy run in plan on Friday.

I think itís the hamstring - back of right thigh, just above the joint about where tendon meets muscle. Itís not painful, but itís tight enough to make me limp slightly.

Obviously Iím wary of running but Iím not sure if I should hold back on the turbo trainer too?

Any advice gratefully received.

When I get tight hams, I usually have a sore back and glutes as well.

Foam rolling and yoga is the answer to my issues.

I usually don't run for a few days but turbo training seems fine.

Obviously, this works for me, may not work for you.

a decent stretching routine and light rollering may help...

Eccentric exercises are generally good for this, strengthens and stretches without having you puling at a tight, sore muscle via static stretches.

Ok gave it a couple of days off. Ran Friday, but it became a bit of a tempo run so shortened it by ten minutes and walked ten. Just done an hour today on the turbo ďmuscular enduranceĒ long intervals 85-95% FTP and it all seems okay.

Stretching same as before after running, with some calf raises as my left ankle is still weak from November.

Might avoid intervals on the bike and run next week.

A massage would probably be useful if you can get one.

Strangely I've had something similar the last day or so after a wattbike session on Weds, possibly didn't have the seat right.
