I’ve seen and heard a lot about compression socks since I started running, but I didn’t really get interested in them till I was pregnant. About 1 month ago I noticed that I just wasn’t recovering after runs like I always have. My calves were feeling runs the next day, just generally tired and heavy and sometimes cramping. These are all things I’ve honestly never dealt with unless I was running over 10 miles. Blah. After a little research in to ‘those compression sock things I’ve heard about” I found that sure enough they are great for recovery, why? Its pretty simple really they stimulate blood flow, helping your legs recover faster, bringing more oxygen to your muscles are always a good thing.
So I e-mailed Pro Compression to see if they would work with me on a review and giveaway, they said yes and quick as can be a hot pink pair of their Marathon Socks arrived in my mail box. I started wearing them as recovery only meaning after runs. Honestly since I only one pair I wanted to get a lot of use from them and sweating in them would mean washes and washes mean I don’t get to wear them. They felt great I could literally feel min legs start to tingle instead of ache, I couldn’t believe it!
Not to much later I had a day where my legs were so tired from heels at work that I couldn’t even fathom a run when I got home, but I decided to go for one anyway with my new socks on. I won’t lie it wasn’t my most comfortable run, HOWEVER I made it through 2 miles which I never would have without them. here is the exact quote from Daily Mile that day. Check out that pace!!!!
