Second Sunday running, no not running walking, I have done 11 miles around my home. Last week in brilliant sunshine but seriously cold today not so cold but very grey. I am lucky I live in such a place to be half a mile from fields, bridle paths and byways. I am building up to walking up a small Spanish mountain, Mulhacen in the Sierra Nevada, at the end of April.
Now I know there are some seriously fit people out there and I need some advice, the distance is fine, I'm comfortable doing 100k steps a week with very ill effect, ache yes, but the rest is mainly ok. With the exception of my left leg, the one the vein was taken from. It is swollen and numb and tonight, if last week is anything to go by, I will have 'restless leg'. Should I be wearing compression socks? Do I get home and raise the leg? Any tips or suggestions grateful accepted
