Hmmm can't tell you...my coach is this hilarious guy who practically never yells so you can pretty much tell him anything you want. On a side note what do you run for the 400, since that's my main race.
Man up and talk to the coach. If you don't tell him and you hurt yourself or run poorly as a result it is going to look bad on you. If you do tell him and he wants you to run and you don't feel you can, then don't run.
All kidding aside, you had better rest them. Hammys can take quite some time to heal if you really strain or pull them. If you're just a little sore, I wouldn't worry too much, but I'd definitely rest them as much as possible.
Yes doctor, I am sick. Sick of those who are spineless. Sick of those who feel self-entitled. Sick of those who are hypocrites. Yes doctor, an army is forming. Yes doctor, there will be a war. Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
You gotta tell the coach. Running injured is one thing I myself can tell you not to ever contemplate doing. By running injured all you're really doing is pushing your recovering period back and most likely prolonging it. You'd rather rehab at the beginning of the season and be ready mid-season than be shut down and risk not being ready for the latter part of the season.

That's pretty good for a Freshman though. I had tried out for Freshman BBall only to be told by the coach being 5'2" or 5'3" at the time was too short (he showed me I was the very last cut too). So I then decided to run indoor track, since it was a sport. I had no clue about anything in track so my times were not real good. Sophomore year, I got back into it and ran a 59-60 400, followed by a 57 400 last year.
I am not going to run in college though (never wanted to), but a lot of my team is. So I have a feeling they are trying a bit harder to get real good times to impress schools than I am. I also didn't really work out running wise before the season started, so that is showing a bit now too (it takes me a few weeks to get back into 100% running shape).
Yeah 61 is pretty good but we have a sophmore who last year as a freshman ran about 55-56 and a senior who last year broke the school record as a junior with a 49 something. I wasn't in very good running shape last year though, I'm hoping to get a 56-57 range this year. My 200 and 100 aren't very good though, I don't have a lot of pure speed, but I can go at a pace just under a sprint for 400 meters.
