I'm freaking loving it.
From my new compression socks from Zensah.
a w e s o m e.
Was so excited when they contacted me.
and even more excited when they listed "argyle" as an option.
awwwww. heck. freaking. ya.
You see.....I was a huge lacoste & Izod fan when I was eight. ;)
I sadly dated a few guys who turned up at my door in argyle. [Dad, why did you let them in?] ;)
But thank goodness they looked more like this:
Now on to the socks . . . .
My trusty-dusty photographer Peanut got a few photos pre-run.
Mostly when I'm talking to her. nice.
Or when I was throwing a treat to the dog to get him away from me.
We did manage one semi-normal photo . . .
What???? I said "semi".
Then it was onto the treadmill.
Firing it up:
And finally - all systems a "go" .
I did have to stop once to get a photo of Peanut and her friend who came in to dance to: "The Golden Age" By Fruit when it came on during my run.
Chris - she has officially taken over my shirt. How the heck does this happen?
So 11 miles completed [yesterday's run] -- averaging 7:43 / mile.
I have only ever run in compression socks twice. I usually use them exclusively for post run. . . . . . but I loved these.
I loved the feel on my arches.
I loved that they aren't too thin or too slippery. I know, weird but I'm used to wearing a bit of a thicker sock so usually when I have tried to wear these during a run [socks by another brand] I feel like my shoes fit too lose?! But not these.
Anyway. I loved. them.
And the fact I get to look all preppy and Carlton [Fresh Prince of Bel-Air] like while doing it . . . . . well that's just a huge perk.
Now I just need to find some black running shoes so Idon't look like such a tool.
Do you wear compression socks?
During races? After? Both?
YAY it's Tuesday!!
Mav's are going to kill the Heat tonight!
