This week I finally started running again (had sort of started about 3 weeks ago but fizzled out after the hamstring got bad right away again). I'm now going to Brian Surage at InMotion and getting some treatment. He seems to think, and I now agree, that my problem is really a lower back issue and so he is really whaling on my back. I'm quite sore but I now think the feeling in my hamstring is more of a weakness than a pull/strain. I also have several core and hamstring exercises I'm doing at home.
