|Oozing sex appeal...|
|How can you tell they're not my legs?|
I wore them a few times this week, but the real test was yesterday's 18 miler. My legs were sore. No, SORE. It was bad. I wore them all day yesterday, and even overnight in bed. Verdict? My calves are the only part of my body not in pain today. No coincidences there.
How do they work? Tommie Copper says the following about their compression gear, which is made with copper:
-Enhances circulation, reduces inflammation and relieves pain
-Made of a revolutionary thin fabric (It really is very thin!)
-Comfortable, lightweight and can be worn under your clothes
Next up? The knee compression sleeves. I have to be honest here--I wasn't a fan. I measured my legs correctly, but I felt like the tops were very tight (giving me a thigh muffin top--not sexy) but they weren't tight around the actual knee. Just for kicks, I let hubs try them on...
|Please note: My legs are not that hairy|
Overall, I would say the calf compression sleeves were a big win for me. Plus, they cost $24.50-a lot less than most other compression sleeves. Check out Tommie Copper's website if you are interested in your own pair.
Moving along...Hubby and I moved into our house! We moved to Georgia at the end of January and started building in April, so it was a long time coming. Not everything is finished, by any means. Still lots of details to take care of, decorating to do and some furniture to buy. But I promise, you'll get a grand tour soon! I have been busy with lots of unpacking and organizing, but also a little of this:
|It's a tough life.|
Do you own any compression gear? Brands? Favorite products?
These are my first items, but I'm definitely sold on the idea of compression gear. I'm on the lookout now for some shorts, because my hamstrings are often what feels worst after a long run.
Please tell hubs that calf compression sleeves are SEXY. No idea why he avoided any friskiness while I wore them in bed.
Seriously. They scream hotness.
