And here I am shooting..Pretty sure my shot percentage is terrible. I honestly think I only made about 5/70 baskets over the hour we played around. It was embarrassing, but we laughed the whole time, so, you know…abs.
What you need to take from all these ridiculous pictures of me attempting to shoot around, is that Pro Compression’s socks kept my calves warm and loose, and my ankle felt great the entire time.. see i was even jumping!
Purple is awesome! So bright and pretty 🙂
After we played basketball, I ran 2 miles home. Two. Full. Miles. No pain, no stopping. I’ve been wearing my awesome Pro Compression purple marathon socks during my few runs back and I like the squeeze around my feet and ankles. I’ve never worn compression socks during runs, only here and there for recovery, but that extra sock support has been helping my comfort and confidence on the road back to racing. I don’t even need to try any other sock because the first time I put these on it just felt right you know?
I do get a lot of strange looks when I wear my Pro Compression socks to work, but once i explain the benefits the strange looks turn into an “ah ha moment” or “why didn’t I know about this sooner?” For those of you who are new runners, crossfitters, cyclists, or just stand on your feet all day here are the basics to know about compression socks:
Pro Compression socks: “True graduated compression promotes circulation by pushing fluid up from your feet and ankles to toward your knees. This design also helps reduce swelling and inflamation while providing critical support to muscles and tendons.”
For those of you that need a visual:
Faster recovery is super important to me right now. After taking a month off from running, i need to be sure i’m taking care of my legs, and these socks aren’t leaving my legs anytime soon.
