  1. Hi, I just wanted to thank you for your informative post on high hamstring tendinopathy. An MRI revealed that I too have this going on. Reading how you tackled the problem has really helped.

    I am an older runner (late 50s), my husband says I need to find another sport. I have hamstring tendinopathy, I have been dealing with it since Sept. I miss my runs, but I can’t run and I can’t really cycle due to sitting after 20 minutes its ugly! So cardio is shot! I am not a high mileage but hey I have goals…a half marathon in June and Marine Corp again in October. I starting seeing my PT in October, ee was doing ultrasound, massage as well as heat, the came December and it was crazy busy and I stopped. I didn’t feel any better during PT as I do now. I have not gone back to PT yet, debating it. I am doing some stretches he gave me to do gently, along with rolling the ball back and forth (I don’t see the purpose of that), I too am using the orange knobby roller, it is a love hate relationship. I had last January a morton’s neuroma removed in my left foot, the goal of 2012 once I was able to get back to running was just that enjoy running. I got my mileage up to 10 miles was pleased wanted to maintain that and begin building Janurary 2013. Well I got board and decided to work on speed, not smart. Also not sure if lifting heavy bags of horse manure didn’t be my cause…trying to protect the running cause. Once I get back at it I want to have my gait checked to see if that could have changed after my surgery, should have done that prior to building mileage I guess. Loved your article…anything you can suggest.

    Thanks for your time.

    Thank you for the information on hamstring Tendinopathy. Although only 4 days into my injury, this is the closest description I have found to my issue and your observations were very helpful. I am not used to a long healing path but this seems to be a good road map and set my expectations a bit more realistically. Mine occurred suddenly during water skiing.

  7. Dirty Miles says:

    Great blog you have here, I’d love to discuss adventure running topics and cross promote some related articles on my site – – send me an email!

  8. Audrey says:

    Has anyone tried prolotherapy? After 7 months of pain, I am feeling a little bit desperate. I dont want to make things worse, of course. Would love to know if anyone has tried it and with what outcome. Thanks.

    Thank you so much for your post on High Hamstring Tendinopathy. I have been dealing (mostly trying to ignore) the pain caused by this injury for over 6 months now….have finally decided to face reality and do something about it. Your blog has inspired me to actually rest and start the rehab process. Thank you from an injured gym addict in Australia 🙂

  10. As so many have said already. Thank you for your post and answers to your HHT. I am not sure that mine is exactly the same. Both of the outside of hips have been getting progressively worse over the last few years. Noticable first when walking up hill with dogs from cold, not stretching. I have so much deep aching pain if I walk up hill, up stairs or as I have recently started, spinning.
    I have a lower back clicking going on for about a year now which again is getting worse although I visit my osteopath when this starts for a couple of sessions. Within seconds of stopping these action the pain subsides. I to have used a cushion in car and dining chair for a couple of years now. My other symptom that nobody else here has mentioned is that I get pins and needles up my back and shoulders. I have had it down to my hands or down to my feet but not at the same time. I am now carrying out stretches given to me by my very fit athlete friend which helps me feel more flexible but does not help the pain in my hips. I think perhaps I should have an MRI on my lower spine what do you think? Did you have pins and needles at all?

    I have had the same injury for almost 2 years. Can you tell me what model of Herman Miller chair you purchased? Are you still using the chair or have you gone to a standing work station?

  12. My name is Marc Santiago and I am looking for blog partners for the Hit and Run 5K. In looking for potential partners, The Golden Trails Blog stood out as one that we would be very interested in working with.

    Hit and Run 5K is the most hilarious obstacle 5K ever. We have huge inflatables, mechanical doors, dodge ball cannons, swimming pools, foam machines, zorb balls, and other crazy elements. Check out this video to see exactly what I mean:

    In working with local bloggers in Salt Lake City we found it was mutually beneficial to do a pre-race post with a unique coupon code for readers, and a post-race review of the experience. If you would be interested in doing this, please let me know and I will provide you with a coupon code for your readers, and a code that will give you a free registration for you and a friend to try out the race.

    If you have other ways we could work together with ads, or sponsored posts, etc. we would be interested in looking at those options as well.

    My brother is a total running nut, so I wanted to capture what it is that makes him go out there and push himself.
    As a filmmaker, I interviewed him, and told his story:

    I believe this would serve as great content to be featured on your blog!

    G’Day Mate,
    Just had an MRI last week to confirm i have high hamstring tendonitis in both legs but more severe in the right. I am hoping to take part in my first Ironman triathlon mid next year. With correct rehab is this a possibility?

    I must apologize for bombarding you with this. I’m sure you must receive a thousand blurbs about crowd-funding campaigns.

    I’d be grateful if you could consider sharing this new documentary, though, called “3100: Run and Become”, which is in its final stage of post-production. We travelled the world to document amazing stories of self-transcendence and the spiritual dimensions of running. We asked, “What if the simple act of running could lead to profound enlightenment?” And what we found out proved to be life-changing.

    3100: Run and Become follows an unassuming Finnish paperboy, Ashprihanal Aalto, in his attempt to complete the Self-Transcendence 3100 Miler a record 14th time – that’s the world’s longest race in which he must run at least 60 miles per day for 52 days around a ½ mile sidewalk loop in New York City. We also follow Shamita Achenbach-Konig from Austria. She’s attempting the race for the first time. Their quest will take viewers not only to the heart of this astonishing event but around the globe to the ancient cultures that have held running sacred for millennia.

    We were granted unprecedented access to the famed Thousand Day Monks of Japan (known in the west as the Marathon Monks), to incredible Navajo runners, and to the now-persecuted Kalahari Bushmen of Botswana. These runners represent the ancient core of running – that running, specifically long distance running, can reveal to us the secrets of the universe.

    Check out the teaser and campaign here: As you know Kickstarter campaigns are all-or-nothing. If the film doesn’t raise it’s goal amount in the next 30 days, we don’t receive the money (nor are people’s cards charged).

    We would love if you could share our story, through email or social media, with your followers or give whatever you can to our Kickstarter page. We’ve attached a sample email for your consideration. If you would like, we can also arrange for you to speak with someone on our team for more details or for an interview for a story. Every method of support makes a difference!

    Thanks so much for your time. Please feel free to contact us with any comments or questions.
