i have got these in the correst size but can anyone tell me if they suffer with the same problem i have, i know they are tight to get on and off but ive been trying these whilst running, are we suppose to use these for running or just after a run.
i went out again yesterday for a 10 mile run and within 2 miles i get the tired aching feeling on that muscle on the front of my shin , i have taken these off through a run and almost instantly relief the pain goes away its strange it feels like theres no blood circulation while they are on giving me a very tired crampy feeling from the knee down.
strange i know but just wondered if anyone else cant run in them i was hoping to use these in the l,ondon but cant have that feeling when ive got about 20 miles left to go, i have slept in them overnight after a run and no problems a lot quicker recovery, maybe there not supposed to be used in motion?
if anyone could shed some light on the matter it would be great cheers dan
Ive have 2xu calf gaurds, and they give me the exact sensation that you state, I also found this increased over time and distance. They now sit in my draw.
I use long compression socks to run in these days
hooray i thought i was the only freak out there with strange legs so the compression socks arnt so tight then ?? what ones do you use?
looks like the calf guards will be just for recovery then
2XU calf guards are great for stopping my shins/calfs being scratched - stung - cut by brambles, nettles etc.. my 2XUs are wrecked now....
Really like the look of the Exo IV calfs from Salomon.....
Noreason why not unless there is a BTF rule that negates that (if its a race you are talking about) .... chlorine will ruin them thoMy question would be why you think you need them in a pool, if it is a cramp issue then deal with that before resorting to calf guards

Can you swim with calf guards on pool swim
(puts BTF official's cap on)
no you can't. the only thing you can wear in a pool is a one or 2 piece suit, goggles and hat (and ear plugs. noseclip if needed).
the same goes in open water if it's a non-wetsuit swim - however you can wear calf guards under a full wetsuit
likewise no socks or gloves - feet and hand cover isn't allowed in either pool or OW swims
(takes BTF official's hat off)
