Hamstring Pull

I pulled my hamstring last week and the trainer said it was minor. I went to my family doctor and he said he didn't think I needed rehab. I looked it up on google and I'm almost positive I have a grade 1 pull.

I can walk, go up the stairs, do unweighted squats and hamstring curls, and jog slowly without any pain whatsoever. However, I can't touch my toes which I usually can do very easily and I can't sprint because my hamstring is very tight and there's a slight pain.

My question is, if I can walk, go up the stairs, do unweighted squats and hamstring curls, and jog slowly without any pain at all, how much longer until I fully recover so I can start sprinting again?

Thanks for any help and advice
