Miracle Socks?

One of the tri stores here in town - Tri-It - was having a sale this weekend. 20% off of everything in the store. (By the way, yes, that is me on the front page of the Tri-It website!) I really wanted to pick up some Kona Cola nuun so I headed there after work to stop in and also say hi to Richelle. I've been curious about trying compression recovery socks. I've heard that people really like them. But...they are expensive. Tri-It carries Zoot CompressRX. With the 20% off sale, this was my chance to give them a whirl! I also checked out the swimsuits. It was a toss up between this one and that one, but here's what I wound up with:I went for a 12K run this morning and put my socks on afterwards. Ahhh, it feels like a non-stop massage on my calves... It will be interesting to try these out after longer runs or after a hard bike ride!

I've wanted to try the Zoot recovery stuff. I've got a pair of their running shorts, a tri suit, and some regular socks. Their stuff is SO comfortable, but REALLY expensive. It was really lucky for you to get 20% off. I'm jealous!

Happy Valentine's Day! Thank you for organizing the virtual exchange! It was fun to be a part of!

What a colorful swimsuit! I like bright, cheerful colors!

I never heard of recovery socks! What will they think of next! I may need to get me some!

Good to know someone else spends absurd amounts of money on things like socks.
Cute suit!

You shoulda bought the one with hearts in honor of Vday! Ha ha. For $80 I'd be wearing those socks every day - sounds like they work well though - think they'd work for baby induced swelling!?
