Did my first run in compression socks yesterday. Kind of weird… i think i liked it… but I’m not sure. My mom gave me this pair because she said she never wanted to run in them again since she wore them at Top of Utah and still cramped…
It was fun trying to get the suckers on… holy moly. I have big calves but good lord i felt like Tigger, like my legs were ready to spring out of the socks… boing… boing. LOL. My mom assured me that this pair of socks are not even that tight!! Well, I’d hate to try on a “real” pair of compression socks.
I felt like i was going super slow at the first part of my run but towards the end i was speeding up. After looking at my splits, turns out each mile i got a lil faster. First mile was around 9:30 pace and my last mile was 8:23 (aka: my marathon goal pace)!!!! 5 miles in 44:ish… for avg pace of 9:05. Not too shabby!
I think i’ll wear them on my 20 miler on Saturday … 🙂
