I remember thinking I would never wear knee high socks with shorts, and as I got focused on improving my running, I did not care! Cramps really put a damper on a run. In fact, I have had to cut a run short because of these cramps.
Now, I am making sure I do my stretching daily, and dialing in my electrolytes and hydration. Experience does help!
I am so happy that Irene order me a pair of Pro Compression Marathon Compression Socks last year, but I seldom wore them. Mostly because last year I was training for Ironman, and my leg issues stemmed from an Achilles injury so I never ran that much to feel leg cramps. This year has been run focused and boom! Cramps! My darn calves were misfiring from being so fatigued. I can't remember ever running this much at the same time running this well!
Pro Compression socks have the right thickness for my calves and stay up. I have used others, but they just slip down. This month, Irene decided to get a rainbow of colors!
Guess which color I will be wearing for the NYC Marathon?
