Hey guys! Happy Monday!
How was you weekend? Mine was busy and active, as always 🙂
Even though I am just training for my first 5K, you might remember me wondering about the benefits/lack thereof of running in compression socks. Well, shortly after I wrote that post I got an opportunity to review Pro Compression socks through my Sweat Pink Ambassadorship.
I decided to see for myself if compression socks make any difference while training and recovering!
I ordered the Marathon Socks in white and got them in the mail just a few days later.
Well, I just couldn’t wait to try them in action!
That same day when I got them in the mail, hubby and I had our next run scheduled with the C25K, so I put my socks on about 15 minutes before the run, kept them on and off we went!
Ok, here’s what happened: I felt like my legs were running ahead of the rest of my body that day. One of the reasons why was that it was the first cool day after a few sweaty exhausting runs. Another reason was that we had a 2 day rest since last run, and 1 day rest since the leg-related activity (the cycling class I taught that Monday).
But I know my legs – it wasn’t just cooler weather and rest. Those socks worked, too! For the first time since I re-started running I felt like moving my feet was not hard work, but pleasure.
I got home, took a shower and put them on that evening for a while for recovery.
Added in some foam rolling and next day my legs felt like that run never happened! No. Tightness. At. All.
From that day forward, I’ve been running in those socks and leaving them on for 15-30 minutes after runs.
