I didn't try recovery compression sleeves until after my first marathon. But when I did try them, I wondered how I could have waited so long!After a long training run or race, I find compression makes a huge difference in the speed of my recovery. Instead of hobbling around, I'm able to much quicker be back to my pre-run state. The sleeves helps increase blood circulation, getting oxygen to the muscles faster. The back of the sleeve provides support of the calf and Achilles tendon with pock and vertical line which mimic the calf muscles.There are other brands such as CEP and ZOOT, but I've been very happy with the Zensah. They come in alot of colors and sizes. For my first pair, I got measured at a shoe store, but now I order them online.
