CEP Compression Sock Review and Giveaway

Come any given Sunday you will find me sporting a pair of bright pink compression socks from CEP. That is our long run day and as soon as we've cranked out the miles and showered off I slip into those socks.

Well... .."slip" into probably doesn't describe it very well. "Force" my legs into is a better description. When the socks came in the mail I laughed because they came with instructions.

"Seriously?!?" I said, "Who needs help getting on a pair of socks?"

Little did I know... .

The whole point of these socks are to support the arteries and supply of oxygen to muscles through COMPRESSION. So yes, they are tight-in a good way.

I LOVE these socks. I've experimented some, trying to see if I feel different later that day and the next day not wearing them, and I can say without a doubt these compression socks help me recover quicker.

The only down side so far is that I can't convince myself to wear them into church. :) So, I put them on after the run and then wear them for the few hours afterwards all the way up until we pull into the church parking lot. Then I take them off and put on my sandals. (and then get teased by my husband for sporting "sock marks") After church I put them back on and my legs THANK me.

(Obligatory cheesy pic sporting socks. *and PS MOM-there are shorts under that skirt*)

So far I've only worn them for recovery after our runs, I'm looking forward to cooler weather so I can take them on a run.
