Workout Wednesday: Compression Socks
 
I had a convo with my brother recently about compression socks. He asked why I wear them during races. So while I was explaining it to him, I thought I'd write a post about it...

I will begin this post by saying there is no firm evidence that supports compression socks one way or the other. I will also say that there is no negative effect of wearing compression socks.

Any race you go to, you see lots of runners with brightly colored socks up to their knees. No, they aren't just for fashion...there is actually a good reason behind it. Many athletes believe that their legs feel better after long runs because of compression socks.
