very painful calf for first 2, very slow pace, took off calf sleeve (thought might help discomfort) and within mile leg felt ok. Steady run with last 4 around MP - finished on beach with swim much for my bright idea of thinking the calf sleeve with help control recent discomfort, nearly stopped the run at 2mile point, once rid of it leg felt ok

    Trial and error worked for you. Good miles in the bank too:)

    Nice run. Glad your calf felt better. Mine's been sore. I am wearing a sleeve on it too. For the first few days I left it on all day and only took it off for bed. It seemed to help speed recovery.

    I guess whatever works, works eh? Sleeve or no sleeve. Glad you're on the mend Stephen.
