    Default I feel my hamstering-- enjoy it

    My understanding was that he told one of the players he was feeling his hamstring a bit. When he came in from the warm-up, I specifically asked him: ‘Are you all right?’ I said it to reassure him. My message was: enjoy it. Well, he lasted five minutes. His hamstring went. But it was no surprise.


    What do the bold parts mean.

    Enjoy it, Does it convey an specific meaning?

    Feel one's hamstering. It made me confuse. Hamstering is a part of body, so It would be normal "to feel it" unless it's a sickness. Or when that organ injured you can feel it hurt you.
    It's such a confusing sentence. any help please?

    Hamstring, not hamstering.

    He felt pain, soreness, tenderness or something not right.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
