I freaking love me some compression.
A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to receive some Aspaeris Pivot shorts.
I've always been a fan of compression SOCKS but I had never tried a compression short before.
Well, I was worried that I'd look like an overstuffed sausage for one. Those suckers are tight. Tight on thighs can sometimes yield . . . . ummmmm, not favorable results.
Second, I know how I feel about a MAN in biker shorts . . .
I probably don't want to even see "The Rock" in biker-esque shorts. ok, that one . . .
Wait. . . now . . .I'm . . . . ummm not so sure.
A n y w a y . What was I saying?
They came . . . .
These suckers are tight - perfectly tight. They looked like they'd fit 11 year old Peanut way better than me but once they were on . . . . they felt amazing.
17 miles later.
I now have a new favorite pair on long run COMPRESSION shorts.
Ya, I loved them.
They without question receive the 5 out of 5 pickle rating.
So out of four 11+ mile days -- I wore them for three [yes, I do two loads of laundry daily - no worries on the smell-o-meter].
The only sad part. . . . taking them off . . . no joke. As soon as I take them off I want them back on.
So my only problem is that I wish I could wear them post run too [need more pairs, maybe blue & red to support my Wildcats at U of A]. ;)
So a big fat huge "thank you" to Aspaeris for letting me try these out.
Do you rock compression gear?
