- COMPRESSION SOCKS -
I would like to know more about compression socks. After reading a little bit about them, I have learned that they are designed to increase blood circulation throughout the legs and help stabilize muscles. Some runners wear them during a run, after a run, or only after really rough runs.
Other than that, I really don't know much about them! I never even heard of them until I started reading running blogs. I will be honest... when I first saw compression socks, I thought they were REALLY ugly. But now that I am more accustomed to seeing them, I don't think they are ugly anymore.
So I have a few questions for my fellow runners who wear/have worn compression socks! I'd rather hear from people with actual experiences with them rather than random articles on the internet...
Why do you wear compression socks?
When do you wear them?
What is the biggest benefit you have experienced from wearing compression socks?
Do you experience a significant difference in your running/recovery if you wear compression socks?
What is your favorite brand?
Are there different types that do different things?
Anything else I should know?
