Rainy days and compression socks!

So what does a girl do when it is absolutely pouring outside and you gotta get your track workout done?.... Thank god for the garage tread mill! Gotta love the "look". Yes they are knee high socks, but they are to die for!! Sugoi Compression Socks are my new best running friend. I picked up a pair just before Ironman in the summer. I had been doing a lot of reading on these socks and had to get me a pair. They work to help reduce fatigue and if you have a second pair, wear them to bed and you recover quicker after a hard training run! I totally recommend getting a pair. I thought I was going to look like a dork in Penticton walking around in these things, but to my surprise, EVERYONE had a pair! Except, I think the men can pull off the look better than the girls. Especially when we have our skimpy running shorts on, we kinda look like, well... You know! Trust me, you'll love them!
