Hi everyone, I'm looking for some advice, before I take the plunge and buy some compression socks. I graduated C25K in September, and have gradually built up in speed, but not particularly distance. I have still only managed around 6K. However I have had a niggley twinge around my ankle and lower leg for the past few weeks, so have just done a little bit here and there, and otherwise rested and done some aerobics. I'm going to see my GP, but as you guys all know, because the waiting time is quite long for appointments, I'm thinking inbetween about self help remedies etc. I thought of maybe an ankle support, but also someone suggested buying compression socks. Should I give them a go, and which do you guys suggest are good ?? Any advice would be gratefully received. I volunteered at Parkrun yesterday, which was a great experience, but really want to get back out to a steady routine of 3 runs a week again. Happy running everyone x
