My legs have not been happy with me lately. Due to plans to go to Cardinal games the next two nights, I had to get all three of my weekday runs into three days. I did the long run Sunday so that means I’ve run four days in a row, which I don’t think I’ve done in years. I’m used to my rest days in between.
Sunday I went online and ordered some Pro Compression socks. I’ve had my eye on these for a while but resisted purchasing because they’re $50, a lot for socks, no matter how many runners rave about them. But I found a coupon code for 40% off so I thought what the heck.
The very next morning I received an email altering me to a 50% off Pro Compression sale. Are you kidding me?? To ease the pain of missing an additional 10% off by one day, I decided if I loved the socks I’d get more.
Well, today the socks arrived (so quick!) and couldn’t have come at a better time. I popped those bad boys on right after I took my shower. Here they are in all their glory.
These are the wardrobe choices Tracy gets to enjoy me making at home.
My review: I love these. I feel like the socks are giving my aching shins a hug. I still feel some mild shin discomfort, but nowhere near what I was dealing with before. These will now be part of my post run routine (which now consists of taking a shower and putting on socks). I’m not ready to be one of those hard core runners who run with the socks on, but I’m not ruling that out either. I really love these a lot and am excited to purchase more at 50% off. 🙂
