Unbelievable difference in recovery time,
This review is from: Zensah Compression Leg Sleeves - Helps Shin Splints, Leg Sleeves for Running (Sports)
I'm relatively new to running and found I would sometimes be sore the next day. My calves would be a little tired feeling after a run. Sometimes there would be shin pain, not splints exactly, but something uncomfortable. I'd read about compression sleeves for the shins as a possible cure and got these hoping they'd do SOME good.
They surpassed my expectations in every way.
I ran this morning and hours later I feel as fresh as if I hadn't run at all. I put the Zensah Compression Leg Sleeves on right after I'm done running and wear them for the rest of the day. I've heard of people sleeping in them, and they're certainly comfortable enough to. I just haven't. My shin pains are gone. My calves are ready to run much more quickly than before. It reduced recovery time dramatically.
I wasn't prepared for how well they would work. I thought maybe I hadn't run as far or as fast but that wasn't the case at all. I'm getting a second pair because I think I'll be able to run more frequently and well, I'm not doing laundry EVERY day and I'll want to wear these more often than I'm willing to wash them. They're machine washable and they dry really quickly hanging to dry. I haven't dried them in the dryer. I'm nervous they'll shrink or I'll ruin them. I'm a convert.

Do these help with achilles tendonitis?

Probably not, but eccentric exercise will. You might want to try this book: Treat Your Own Achilles Tendinitis. Hope this helps, tendonitis can really put an end to your running.

This was a pair, correct? Some sites only sold one and I wanted to make sure there were actually two sleeves.

I got two when I ordered them. Oddly, now I can only find one. I suspect the other is where socks go in the dryer. I need to get another pair though so next time I misplace one I'll still have two.
