Brace Yourself

September 29, 2008

After the tightness in the calf late last week, and the return of that feeling that means the knee just isn’t tracking like it should, I played around with the idea of bagging today’s run. But yesterday was a rest day, and two rest days in a row do not a championship runner make. Instead, I decided to find and wear my old knee brace.

Good decision. My knee felt much better when supported by tight neoprene. As for the calf, Ben-Gay before the run does wonders. My pace wasn’t blazing or anything–I still ran this one in recovery mode–but I definitely didn’t feel that thing where my knee just isn’t in place on half my strides.

Good stuff.
