They tried to make me go to rehab...

I am rehab-ing my leg AGAIN!!  It is not such a big deal this time.  I am not injured again or anything.  I am just having a little problem w/ my right hamstring.  (Only my right leg ever bothers me.  My left leg is perfect!)  My sports medicine doc thinks that my hamstring was weakened during the last 6 months that I have dealt w/ my IT Band injury.  So I am just back in Physical Therapy for a few weeks to strengthen it and keep it relaxed.  I am doing daily squats, lunges, hamstring curls, etc.  I've been doing these for months but they have not been too effective b/c of my ITB injury causing my leg to overcompensate in some way.  I don't entirely understand it but my leg is already feeling better and it has just been a week.  Of course now I am doing a TON of these exercises!  The therapist is also doing a lot of ultrasound therapy and electro-something therapy which keeps it from getting tight and cramped too badly.  I am hoping this therapy will keep me from hurting my leg again.  We shall see.  As for my running and eating.... I am putting in 3 miles everyday and still sticking to my eating plan.  Not many splurges this week.  However, I am running low on my Jenny Craig food which I need to get soon.  I have a weigh in on Saturday and plan to stock up then! Peace out!
