Welcome to Week 9! At this point, we are officially halfway through training. Can you believe it? What you probably can believe is how incredibly tired your legs can be after a long run. This week, we will talk about something that may just help – compression.
Compression gear helps keep fresh blood flowing to your muscles, which can decrease recovery time and reduce soreness in muscles. For example: compression socks and calf sleeves can greatly reduce the pain of shin splints. Many of our staff members swear by CEP knee-high socks to help get them through long training runs and races. The best way to see if compression can benefit your training is to try it out! We carry socks, calf sleeves and tights in various lengths to suit particular needs.
