TROGS......sounds as if i'm in exactly the same boat as you my friend, out running last night and not too sure whether how bad the strain is on my calf, just as i was starting to ramp things up a bit!! must be something in the air with all these injuries about! Ive chucked on my compression socks for a bit of support today.....do reckon that'll help in anyway or is the only bonus walking around work knowing that im basically walking around in stockings?!!!
I've been wearing compression socks too. Not sure if they actually make a difference but I am sure they're not doing any harm
I looked it up. This is what they say:
THE EFFICIENCY INDEX
This is the average number of strokes per 25 metres plus the average time taken to swim 25 metres. This index decreases as your efficiency increases.
less than 30 Excellent
30-40 Very Good
40-50 Above average
more than 70 Below average
Thanks for posting that Flyaway. My garmin provides a SWOLF/efficiency score but, apart from knowing that the lower the figure the better, I've never actually bothered to investigate further. It seems that I'm 'Above Average' verging on 'Very Good' Not sure that my swim times actually reflect this though!
