The Plunge

I finally did it I purchased 2 pair of compression socks, pink & purple (not that the color matters) I went yesterday and got fitted for a pair and found that the running store wanted $60 a pair!...which is way out of my price range. So this morning I went to and ordered 2 pair for less than the price the running store wanted 1 pair. The hard part now is going to be waiting for them to come in the mail.  In roughly 7 days these will arrive!
Reason for finally taking the plunge...I have been doing some reading about people who have cramping problems in the calf and feet area. It has been said that the increase in fluids isn't enough some times, sometimes people need an increase in blood flow. Either because of the way they sit all day has decreased flow or just because they are getting old. (Yes I am choosing the first one because I am not that old yet)

On to other things yesterday I ran a slow and steady 13:03 mile on the treadmill then did a core workout. It felt great to sweat again and feel my muscles work hard again. I missed being in the gym while I was in London. In theory today I will try and get in a few miles this evening as well as the upper body workout.

Hope everyone is having a great week!

  2. I'm in love with my compression socks! There was no way I would pay $50 for a pair, so I waited until they went on sale for $30. I have 2 pairs and want more!
    Awesome job on the treadmill!
