CEP compression socks

the socks arrived wrapped like a present ~ resting w/my feet up
My new compression socks arrived mid-week and I couldn't wait to try them out. (BTW, these arrived 3 days after ordering them online... no shipping or taxes and a 10% discount!) I decided to wait until after my weekend's long run but with friends in town, the long run was postponed until Sunday morning. Immediately following my 20+ mile run yesterday I showered and slipped into these socks. Well, I didn't "slip into them" because it was more of a pushing and pulling event to get these on. However, I wore them all day and my legs felt great. I don't know if there was a difference in recovery (I haven't been sore after my long runs these last two months, just tired), but the snugness on my legs sure felt nice! Last night I was bouncing up and down the stairs and this morning I took a spin class. Maybe it was the socks? Either way, thanks for the tips. My legs were loving the gentle hug/squeeze yesterday!
