"Tight" - INXS

Compression.

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.

Why?

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 . . .

[too visual]

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?

Ahhhhhh, ok.

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.

These rocked.

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.

Happy Friday!!

QUESTION:

Do you rock compression gear?
Socks?
Shorts?
Tights?

You gonna be sporting those tomorrow night? '

I love my compression socks for post-long run. And for helping heal hurting parts!

As if you have to worry about the sausage effect!

I've only done socks so far... I have a hard enough time squishing myself into bike shorts. I don't think I could do it! LOL

Yea, I think you're ok on the no-sausage look. I do love my compression socks after a long run.

Five PICKLES! YAY!!

I think I have to get a pair of these now. I have been dreaming about sausage shorts ;-)

cheryl said...

All of above...but only wear them when injured or incredibly tired. So that was about a year ago.

I still have yet to buy some compression gear. But, I badly want too...

I haven't tried compression clothes for fear of looking like a stuffd sausage.
