Return visit to Physio - almost definitely have proximal hamstring tendinopathy. No noticeable improvement in two weeks - could take another 8-12 weeks to see improvement. Prescribed more intense hamstring loading exercises and weighted hip thrusts. Need to avoid hill running or any fast running over next few months. Easy running on flat with short strides only - should be ok hill walking but need to avoid running downhill. Intervals on spin bike or cross trainer may aggravate problem so young to start swimming or aqua jogging. Difficult to determine what activities aggravate problem - often don't feel much pain whilst doing the aggravating activity - only tightness in hip which becomes deep ache later on. Next entered race is Mourne Highline in 8 weeks so hoping to be recovered by then. Very frustrating but hoping to get back to running in the hills without any discomfort by May to give time to build up for LAMM.
