comment How can Kinesio tape provide support for tendonitis
Maybe, I was more interested in now any external taping\bandaging could provide support to the underlying tendons.

Ahh... I can see, mechanically, how a micro-tear could benefit from tape... but not given the low friction between tendons and the surrounding tissue.

I'm not avoiding questioning her, I came on here to understand the mechanics of taping. She says it was probably caused by exactly what you say, a sudden increase in training and some very old trainers. She also suggested there could be a micro-tear.

@JohnP That's right, or what I'd assumed, zero or negligible friction in a healthy person. So how can tape provide any support?

It's not lifting skin, as the skin obviously stays firmly attached to you, so it must be be contracting it. Contraction would cause 'buckling', thus any reduction in pressure in one point would be countered by an increase at another. I'm not sure the 'pulls skin away' theory holds water.

@DaveNewton OK, forget about Tough Mudder, I'm just trying to get fitter. I just want to know how to get useful information from these metrics. Something I can use to improve my fitness.

@DaveNewton If you click on details, I't shoud you all kinds of stuff. What sort of thing would you be looking for? What I'd like is some example data and an explanation of how I get get useful information from it. Waiting until a race is too late, I want to hit problem areas before racing.
