Happy Monday! I had a few early clients today so I ate breakfast and headed to the gym. Since my
cankles are feeling sore I’m not running until tomorrow. I chugged my iced coffee and did a full upper body set.
After work I stocked up on healthy food at the store. Of course I bought a watermelon because Monica without watermelon is like a plant without sunlight. I would die.
Buuut, I dropped the watermelon!?!^Mo!herF&?B!?!*
And it broke (my heart). After the neighbors were reassured that they didn’t have to call 911 (because I screamed like I was being murdered) I picked it up and dragged it inside. Now my floor is covered with watermelon juice and tears.
I wanted to drown my sorrows with vodka sodas, but I have to head back to work in a bit so I opted for just sodas.
In Vegas news: My cat jumped on the open door again. I think he jumped on it from that little table, but I didn’t catch it this time. He’s a beast. (Ben put that flying monkey up because he wants to feel like he’s living in a college dorm.)
A few of you asked this morning:
Why wear compression socks?
Here are the Top 4 Reasons to Wear Compression Socks (or sleeves)
2. So your calves won’t get sunburnt.
Girls, guys don’t like freckly calves. If I hadn’t been hiding mine the entire first year of our relationship I probably wouldn’t be married right now.
3. Because the more expensive running accessories you have the better. This is like runner bling. You’re not in the club unless you wear it on your sleeve. Or calf sleeve as the case may be.
4. Because compression helps with recovery. The socks or sleeves compress your baby cows and attract blood flow to the area. They are supposed to help prevent blood from pooling in your feet and help with circulation.
I haven’t tried sleeves, so I don’t know the difference firsthand. But the point of them is the same.
Okay, truthfully you don’t NEED compression sleeves or socks. If you take a long time to recover from longer runs, if you have issues with your calves or maybe poor circulation you might want to try them.
