I’m so zen.

Zensah that is, in my new Compression Leg Sleeves!

I mentioned a couple days ago that I was anxiously awaiting the arrival of my new leg sleeves in hopes they would help the muscle cramping and pain I tend to get in my calves/shins. Well, I’m happy to say, after a trial sprint workout, they did not disappoint. I wore them while running and also during recovery. I even kept them on while I iced.

They are so comfortable that I barely even notice they are there. They didn’t interfere with my running at all and stay in place very well. I couldn’t believe how quickly and how well my legs recovered post-run, thanks to the pin-point compression. They come in many colors, but I chose blue to match my shoes.

From the Zensah website:

The Calf/Shin Recovery Sleeves are made with gradient compression which provides wide ribbing in the front for shin support and tight ribbing in the back for calf support. The sleeves are made with Zensah Fabric which has silver helping to regulate skin temperature and fight bacteria. The sleeves can be worn during training or for recovery to increase oxygen blood flow to the muscles of the lower leg. The more oxygen the muscles receive the faster they recover, allowing athletes to push the envelope in their training.

I’m looking forward to many more great training runs, pain-free!
