Now onto to good stuff. I recently was given the opportunity to review ZuZa compression socks from Lunatikathletiks.com and here's my thoughts.
I typically only wear my compression socks during runs over 6 miles. Anything else, I really haven't found the need for. This past week, start of my half training, I had a 7 miler for my long. I woke up at my normal 5AM time, damn summer heat, slipped on my pretty awesome socks and out the door I went. Okay, I fueled first and then I left. It rained on me the first 4 miles which really didn't bother me but after it stopped, it felt like I was running in a sauna The steam coming off the road and the heat beginning to build made it HOT!! They kept my calves happy, no cramps so these are definitely keepers. I love compression socks and swear by them for my longs. I am going to try to start wearing them for recovery too after my runs get above 10 miles so I'm sure I'll have more to say about them in the future.
Onto the other stuff.
