overnight hamstring tightness

cw106 Posts: 952 Member
recently started a new job which has me on my feet for 8+ hours per day.
am reasonably fit and running 20 miles plus weekly.
last few nights,hamstrings have tightened overnight enough to wake me up.
wondering about the possible cause and any suggested remedies please folks.

    Probably just the change in activity (standing all days is very different that going for a run) but I'd probably try some of the same remedies to mitigate the discomfort such as some extra stretching or quality time with your foam roller.

    Are you wearing appropriate footwear while working? My daughter recently started working at a restaurant and very quickly learned that function trumps fashion......
