You know that muscle between the buttocks and the back of the knee. One of those muscles that you stretch before excersizing intensly.
Last night I was playing ring around the table with the 11 puppies to wear them out before bedtime. It was about 9:30 PM. Four puppies decided that they were going to sneak back around the table the other direction. I lifted my left leg to step over them. I was wearing my house slippers. As my left foot hit the floor it just kept on going. No puppies squeeled so they must have scampered out from underneath me. I did the perfect splits if I was a 16 year old gymnast. But since I am significantly older than that what is most appropriate to say it "OUCH!"
Somehow and I'm not sure how I got my legs back to where they belong. I lay on the floor and yelled, "DALE! I need your help!" I had to yell it several times because Dale was asleep in the bedroom with Duchess and My Jenny. I was about a half and hour away from leaving and he was not expecting to hear me yell.
When he came out it looked like there were 11 puppies whipping my a**. They were crawling all over me, chewing my clothes and biting my hair. Typical puppy play. Since I was playing with them when I got hurt, they just thought I was still playing. Dale picked up the puppies and put them back in the kennel and helped me up. I sat down on the recliner with my hamstring resting on ice packs. I was able to walk to the car and get home. I am walking so-so today. I did have a chiropractic adjustment today. My lower back was out from the impact.
Pray for me. This is a difficult injury to recover from....
