2 weeks to go...................argggghhhhhhhh
17 days ago I got a calf strain, this was 4 weeks out from Edingburgh marathon, had to rest for 17 days.
It's just about ok and on Sunday I went for a slow 3 miler, yesterday a 6 miler and tonight I plan a 9 miler. It's basically, *hit or bust as I dont want to go all the way up north to breakdown after 10 miles or so. Hoping to get 15-20 in on Friday as the final test.
Question is, I havent worn compression sleeves before, should I purchase some Skins MX for the marathon as a bit more support or will they hinder more than help.
I'm sure they won't help but what's the betting that someone comes along claiming that scattering elephant powder keeps the pachyderms off the streets.
I would have thought getting a physio to tape you up would be better than compression socks. Good luck and I hope you make it to the start and finish line.
