Had a good run home from work this am. Felt good which was surprising since I had a long hard night at work. Set a few "pr's". Fastest run home by 2 min or so. Fastest run commute time am or pm by 45 sec or so.
My run tonight I figured would be a death march but not that bad. I think the temp being 77 helped.
Once I got to work, cleaned up, showered & dressed out I noticed my boots were tighter than normal. My feet had swollen some. I guess if I'm going to run to/from work & wear steel toes all night I need to be wearing compression socks.
This poses a bit of a problem since arc flash rules say everything worn under arc flash clothes has to be mostly cotton. Less melting that way if I catch on fire. It's happened to me more than once so I stick to this rule. Luckily there are several brands of compression socks with 80%+ cotton. That should keep me legal & safe plus make my legs feel better.
