19 degrees...19 degrees. Ouch. Got in a nice long run (about 16.3 miles) at Rockefeller with the newly married Kristen and Wayne today. Lots and lots of hills.
I ran today with the Zensah Shin Splint/Calf Compression Sleeve. Now, I don't have shin splints or any calf issues, but, I've read a lot about compression clothing and its benefits both during running and for recovery. In fact, you should check out iRunFar.com's July 8, 2008 post (Compression Clothing and Recovery from Running) for a detailed discussion and look at the many options. As for the Zensah, the deep groove ribbing is supposed to help increase blood circulation, getting oxygen to the muscles faster. The back of the sleeve provides support of the calf and and Achilles. Well, they also happened to keep me nice and warm on a chilly day.
