Even though I’ve been running for what seems like for-ever, I just recently found out about compression socks.
Seriously, was I living under a rock?!
These things are amazing. I recently purchased the Swift Sox RunLove Compression Socks from RunningSkirts.com. I was already impressed when I opened them up and noticed the socks are smartly marked with a little “L” and “R” just so you know which one goes where. Because the running stupids do happen, people.
After yesterday’s day of a long run + race, I thought it would be a great day to try them out. When I got back from the race, I felt that my legs were already starting to get sore. So I put on the compression socks and rocked them all day, even at my fiance’s company holiday party (where I stood in four-inch heels for 3+ hours).
Today, I woke up and my legs feel well rested and aren’t tired, not like they usually are after a long run. Very impressed! Plus, the nice thing about these compression socks, is they are about half the price of other ones out there. RunningSkirts.com was great to order from — fast shipping, plus they have other super cute products!
