We quite like compression not least for the fact that it makes your legs look amazing. The first time I took some compression tights off though I did have a flashback to an incident at a wedding several years ago involving a pair of spanx – we’ve all been there right?
Back to the point though…although it may not make you a faster, better or stronger runner, the increased blood flow to your hard working muscles will aid recovery and you’ll feel so much better the second day if you’re a back-to-back kind of a gal.
You can of course go the whole hog and dress head to toe in compression but we think that having it on your legs is a good place to start. This means leggings, shorts or socks, but you’d figured that out right?
We are fans of Skins and 2XU for leg coverage and I also like to rock a compression sock – my current favourites being these by Compressport. If we’re talking wish lists here, I’d like one of these skorts too…
So, over to you. Do you subscribe to the school of compression? What are your favourites? Let us know!
