After having the odd tightness in the bottom-back of my calf earlier this week, I was checking out possible injuries, just to be on the safe side. The tightness has subsided and actually I had a really great 7 miles yesterday, with one mile being a solid 8:00 min mile. Maybe the extra rest day did the trick! That was the strongest run I’ve had in a while.
While I was looking for possible injuries/causes I came across this infographic and thought I should share. I’m definitely going to look into getting some Compression socks or calf sleeves. The only reason I haven’t is due to the cost. It’s hard for me to stomach $30-$50 for one pair of socks… but hey, if they work, they work, and are probably worth the money.
