I am thankful that I got my last long run in on Saturday and while I still feel a phlegmy (sexy right?), I am in taper so I’m going to try to rest a bit more rather than get any sicker.
Right before I got sick I was sent a pair of compression capris from Zensah. I had to wait until it got a little cooler out and I was feeling better before I could give them a test run.
I must admit that they are tight, but in a good give-my-butt-a-hug way. And I went for my four mile recovery run in them on Sunday. My legs definitely didn’t feel as sore today and I know some people think that “compression” isn’t all that helpful but I definitely think that post long run or a tough workout the compression feels very nice. (The compression socks I have, which I have worn home from races always feel great!)
The fabric is moisture wicking and breathable and the only thing I didn’t like about the compression capris was the waist. I am so used to low-rise everything that the waist seemed awfully high on these. However, I did feel very 1950’s in them and pretended to be on Mad Men. Heh.
Here’s a couple of shots of the pants…and because I am jealous of all of Katie’s amazing butt shots, I threw one in for good measure.
I suggest heading over to Zensah and looking at the different options of running gear they have. You can get 20% off of the compression capris by using the discount code “CAPRI20“. It’s good until Friday! (If you don’t at least have a pair of post run recovery socks, I’d say give them a try.)
What do you think? Is compression for you?
I really like compression but haven't tried these!! I'll have to head over to check them out!
I wear compression socks, but haven't tried full pants. I'm assuming they have those for guys right?
I have compression socks and love them but haven't tried shorts/pants.
You look awesome in them!
You is looking mighty caliente and ready for Miami in those pants! As for the pants, I don't know if I would be able to wear those all the way up there on my waist. Although they do look like they would be flattering and compress the bejeasus out of my muffin top. 🙂
ass pictures = amazing. this is an excellent start to a long career as an ass poster.
I thought the exact same thing about the capris (yes I have a pair) and they were practically pulled up to my neck that I had to roll them down.
I haven't tried compression and I have to admit I'm a bit of a skeptic. Maybe one day!
Calf guards for sure. I don't know about full pants.
Great picture btw!
