For some people, a long, steady run is a perfect way to spend an hour. The free time to think, sweat and focus on pounding the payment. I am not one of those people. Yes, I enjoy working out. Give me a spin class or a yoga class and I will gladly spend an hour or two of my free time working on myself. Tell me that I'm going to run a 10K this summer and I hyperventilate. Do I know that I can physically accomplish the task - yes I can. Am I going to be happy about the event - probably not.
Run Forever Sports Calf Compression Sleeves, my runs have become a little more bearable.
The Run Forever Sports Calf Compression Sleeves offer a variety of benefits. Personally, I feel less tired after a vigorous run when using these sleeves. Specifically, the company believes that these calf compression sleeves help to reduce pain from shin splints, boost circulation, help fight muscle fatigue and helps recovery.
At first, I was concerned that these sleeves would be hot and heavy. I have been wearing the sleeves under my wind pants. Even with the double layer, I have not found them to be heavy or burdensome. While I'm currently running in cooler temperatures, I think that these compression sleeves would work well in a warm climate as well.
The biggest difference that I find with these calf compression sleeves is that my runs don't seem as tiring. Of course, I know that overall my training has improved, but my calves don't burn at the end or after my run. I feel strong and can even pick up the pace during a tempo run.
Needless to say, these compression sleeves have become part of my necessary items for these run training sessions. Will I reach the finish line at the 10K is no longer the question. The goal is now to run the entire race in a decent time. Thanks to these compression sleeves my goal is attainable.
