We’re talking runners slang this week on Tuesdays on the Run.
What code words or special things do you say to your running besties, or as I like to call them BRF (best runner friends!).
I’m all over the runrise action (running with the sunrise), myself. As well as Gallowrunning (Galloway running method). Thankfully most of my friends speak my same language!
I pretty much spilled all my code words in the intro. I’m not all that creative when it comes to running code. Blogger fail!
I was sent a new pair of compression socks by SLS3 to test out and review. They are also offering a nice discount code to you guys, so check it out! You can buy the socks
You can buy the socks on Amazon and use the code YHM5PMSG to lower the price to $12.99.
That’s right: $13 for compression socks. It’s a great deal!
Super cute butterfly designs as well!
I bought my first pair of compression socks about 5 years ago and they were the SLS3 brand. I fell in love with the butterfly design and still think they are pretty cute!
They come in a couple of different colors now including my original blue pair, purple, pink, and lime yellow.
My first concern with compression socks is: will they fit.
Since I have large calves (16 inches- eesh!) I am always concerned about compression socks being too tight. I’ve tried on brands before that were super awesome for compression. Too awesome, actually. They left deep lines on my legs and were not comfortable to put on or take off.
These, however, felt great. Went on smoothly, stayed snug, and gave me no issues on my run.
They even did alright running through the sprinklers.
Hey, it’s HOT here in Arizona. I couldn’t pass that opportunity up!
So the socks are cool in the sprinklers. I tested them for you. You’re welcome. Ha!
My only complaint is in the bottoms of the feet. I’m a special snowflake when it comes to my feet and prefer socks with more cushioning for long runs. While I’d wear these for something shorter than a half, I don’t really need compression for those 2-3 mile training runs, you know?
They aren’t thin, but they just don’t provide the level I prefer when it comes to cushioning. If that’s not a concern to you, then you’ll be happy with the SLS3 compression socks.
Do you run in compression socks or sleeves? Is there a magic mileage number where you put them on?
