My first PRO giveaway!

Posted Jun 25 2013 12:15am

Hi guys! So I have been dying to share this with you for a couple months. I’ve never done a giveaway although I have been given various opportunities for them. I just don’t usually feel like they line up with my blog so I don’t accept them. This one though, was different. I’m not quiet about my love for this company. I have very few running essentials. These are one of them.

I need three things on my runs:

1) mizuno wave inspires.

2) pro compression socks

3) clothes (can’t run naked, ya know)

I was given the chance to review pro compression socks . It couldn’t have come at a better time given how my legs have been feeling lately. I’ve done this a thousand times before, so I’ll let the pictures do the talking. I wear compression sleeves or socks everywhere. To the beach, to run, to race, to zumba, to sleep, around town, under clothes, basically all the time. They make my legs feel SO much better. I’ve found that my recovery is faster both from wearing them while running and after. It keeps the blood flowing easier and when I do take them off (only to wash them about once a week, lets be honest), my legs feel so refreshed.

PROs:

  • They come in tons of colors so you can match your outfits!
  • They help the blood flow because they’re tight
  • They help you recover faster from your runs
  • They don’t fall down as easily as some of the other brands I’ve tried.
  • They reduce soreness

Cons:

  • They’re a little pricey…. BUT Pro Compression is offering all of you 40% off!
  • They’re tight. It can take a little bit of getting used to but I personally like them tighter

Sizing:

Here’s where I’m going to tell you to do what works for you. I’m going to give you my own sizing. I have man-calves. I’m being completely serious and it’s not in a self-deprecating way. My calves are the size of a small person’s thighs, I’m pretty sure. I build muscle easier than the average person. With that being said, I still wear a size small in the compression socks despite the fact that I wear a size 10.5 sneaker. I’ve found that if I wear a smaller size than I normally would, it not only prevents them from stretching out before I wash them, but it also keeps them tighter around my calves for longer. So if I were you I’d say go a size smaller than you think you need, but that’s just my opinion!

Pro compression agreed to offer one of you a chance to improve your runs too!
