Do i feel scared? Yes. Well duh, i can't imagine 42km.
Do i feel prepared? Well, a little less than last year. Err... a lot less.
Now this morning, Matthew text messaged me about running in a pair of compression socks. This is a decision six days before a marathon. I question the style factor. It's going to look clownish. But like Matt says, we'll see if i look like a clown when i cramp. So whatever rocks one's performance while pounding the tarmac for 42km, i guess!
Joe Friel's blog wrote about it, and i quote
"* improving venous return to the heart,* preventing muscles from moving unnecessarily as with excess vibration meaning less fatigue, and
* speeding recovery."
Thus the socks are supposed to delay the onset of cramps.
So what do you think? Fashion faux pax? Or it's going to help with the run?
