Compression Socks

With all the talk lately about compression socks, I really wanted to get a pair. But I really didn't want to pay $35 for them. I also thought about just wraping my legs with ACE bandages after a hard run as well, but luckly a friend of a friend is a rep for a sports clothing company and was able to score me a free pair! I got them in the mail yesterday and my wife forgets to tell me. This morning, as I'm finishing my coffee, she tells me I got a package last night. Of course it's like christmas whenever I get a package. I tear that shit open and put on a sock. It took me several minutes though, because they are pretty tight (obviously). I was going to wear them to work today but my wife thought otherwise. I can't wait to use them this weekend!

Here is a pic my wife took this morning (with the dog eating breakfast next to me)


  1. New Follower...

    It's pretty much guaranteed that you'll love them...and need another pair so you don't need to do laundry every day...

  2. Sweet! Can't your friend score me a free pair too?

  3. Rae- you're not the first person to ask for another pair. she told me he only had one left!

    Patrick - WELCOME!

  4. I can't wait to hear all about them!

    Now if only they made compression underpants to help with those pesky hip-flexors.

  5. you are so going to be addicted to them! i wouldn't survive ironman training without them...

  6. heidi, do you wear them during your runs or after for recovery?
