Two days post 1/2 Mercedes Marathon and I'm still hobbling around on my toes in pain.  My calves are toast, that's all I can say.  I even ran the race wearing compression socks underneath 2XU Compression tights.  These didn't seem to help at all or maybe they did and my calves would be in much worse pain if I hadn't worn them.

I have been wearing these Zensah compression sleeves for the past two days.  They are suppose to increase circulation to the area to help heal faster.  I don't really know if it's working, but I will give anything a try.  I even ordered a couple more pair of compression socks in a different brand in hopes that it will help.  Looks like compression will be part of my racing, training and recovery attire for a while.

I'm not sure what Ken teases me more for - the funny walk or the funny white things on my legs.

Cadence is pretty use to the weird things I wear....

  1. cadence isn't having any part of those things!
    i'm wondering if inverted poses would help you...plow position, shoulder stand...simply elevating your legs for a few minutes several times a day.
    hope your calves heal soon. xo
