Little Diva is the best lil photographer these days!!They were great for my long outdoor run, because the weather was somewhat cool, and the socks kept my legs warm. When the sun came out and things heated up over the next three hours, I didn't overheat, as I feared I would with these socks. They kept me at the right temperature. I was worried that they may shift or fall down, but they didn't. I also have "thicker" legs then other long distance runners and they seem to fit me just fine. They may not look as sleek as they would on some of you, but they fit just fine and didn't need adjusting as I ran. Now that I look back to last weekend, I didn't feel sore the next day after running 18 miles, didn't have trouble walking down stairs or anything. I'm not sure if this was due to the Recovery Socks or not. But, they sure didn't hurt the training run.
The first time I wore them was on a 5K treadmill run and I felt the biggest effect during that wear. My legs felt a bit tingly which kept my mind entertained during my workout.
They are also super cute, as some of you are really getting into the knee-high socks craze right now while running. As much as I love being matchy-matchy and sporting cute running outfits, I wonder if others out walking during my long run just thought I was trying to be "cute" rather than testing out some "compression socks". Oh well, I guess that's multi-tasking!!
