Pro Compression Knee High Socks - LOATHE
I so wanted to love these socks! After wearing ankle height socks by Feetures forever and seeing so many of the runners I follow on instagram rave about these socks I wanted to give the Pro Compression knee socks a try. Luckily there was a special on the aqua stripe ones so I ordered myself a pair.
They are supposed to keep the blood flow going to your legs and feet during intense workouts and maybe one day they will work for me. But I've tried them out twice now and each time I feel like my legs are going to die. I ran a slower pace each time I used them and was only able to go about 3 miles. My legs felt strange and I could never get any momentum. It kind of felt like I was running in water. I was super bummed as I was hoping to get in enough training in them to use them for the Alexandria Half. Sadly after barely making it through 3 miles I knew trying for 13 wasn't going to work.
I'm hopeful that I'll be able to go back to these and try them for training later on. Perhaps it was too warm or I didn't have them pulled all the way up? I'd like to at least get one good run out of them. Stay tuned as I may end up updating this review if they work in the future!!
