I'm an AT alumus (NOBO 2009), and have plans to hike the PCT starting in 3 weeks. Last summer I hurt my hamstring while working a job that involved some intensive backpacking. It was just a minor strain, and I've never experienced anything worse than tightness and mild pain. I'm worried, however, because over the last several weeks I've been going on weekend backpacking trips, and the injury has just resurfaced. I only have 3 weeks until my flight leaves for San Diego! I guess I'm wondering if anyone else has begun a thru-hike with a strained hamstring, and how it fared over your hike. Is there any chance it could improve with time on the trail, or will it only worsen?? Any advice on what I can do to help it over the next few weeks would also be appreciated!
