So, I started a thread about 3 weeks back. I slightly pulled/strained/tore my left hamstring and calf muscle diving for a softball. It hurt like a mo-fo, was bruised and sore. It was healing nicely, and a few days ago I was even able to jog a few miles without incident.
Yesterday I got a call from a bro, they needed a left fielder for a game. Of course, I volunteered, against advice from my wife.
1st inning, 1st batter, I'm in left field. the batter hits a shot over my head (it was a home run), I turned, with the intention of sprinting, took 2 steps and felt/heard 2 distinct pops. DAMMIT! Leg re-injured yet again......OHHHHHHH the pain. WTF man!!! Am I getting old? So, I guess 3 weeks was not enough time.
Here is my question.
WHY can I jog on it, even run at a steady pace. But, any quick movements, to include sprinting, causes pain or injury? Even last night, I continued to play. I could jog out to left field between innings no problem (slight pain), but any quick movements and my shit was through
Now, I have to wait another 3 weeks for this bitch to heal, so I can start jogging again. Getting old sucks
