This is my newest run-purchase. I decided to try these puppies out to help with recovery after long runs. It took me several months of going back and forward to decide if these would really help me and if it was worth spending the money. After watching the New York marathon a few weeks ago I decided to take the plunge. So far I have run 3.5 miles, an 8 miler, and on Saturday I used them in my 16.67 mile run. On Saturday afternoon I noticed a big difference in the fatigue in my legs, yes they were still tired but they were not sore nor did they feel the beating they took in that run. So I am very happy with my purchase. They are very tight to put on, but I felt like my calves held in place and were not bouncing around. And then even tell you which foot they go on. Great purchase. I also recently purchased an Xterra wetsuit during a promotion for $99. Tonight in South Texas it is possible that it will be about 55 degrees when I hit the outdoor slightly heated pool, so I will taking along the wetsuit to see how it swims.
Hope to see you on the roads soon!
