Is normal to feel pain after long race when the calf compression sleeves are removed at finish line?

asked about 6 years ago | Report

I use the sleeves during the race and feel a lot less fatigue in the calves, but when I finished I remove the sleeves and after a while, in the afternoon, the pain in the calves was more than it was in previous trainings.
Note: It is the first time I use the sleeves.

  • I use calf compression sleeves too but I leave them on after the race for an hour or two & my calfs feel fine. I have read its best to leave them on afterwards because it helps for calf muscle recovery.
