Anyway...today, I'm here to share my updated thoughts on a compression product I've been trying for several months now. Although I'm an ambassador for the company, please know that I am sharing my honest opinion with you and I wouldn't promote a product I didn't truly love!
LEGEND Compression is a fairly new company on the market and they've so graciously allowed me to try out a pair of their compression socks and a pair of compression leg sleeves.
I LOVE compression and for me, it's an essential part of my training and recovery. After a major race, I wear compression tights. If I've run a long run and my legs are fatigued, I wear compression socks...even if that includes wearing them to sleep that night or to work the next day. When I am in training for full marathons, I even wear them for my really long runs. I also wore a pair of compression socks to run my first full marathon back in 2011.
I said all of that to say, I'm definitely a believer of compression and its benefits for the runner and recovery!
Why LEGEND and what sets them apart, you might ask? Well, out of all of the compression gear I've tried in the past, I love the graduated compression offered in LEGEND's products (both the socks and sleeves I've tried). Their compression gear offers 15-20 mmHg of compression (a therapeutic level of compression) - I can honestly say these are some of the most comfortable compression socks I've ever worn, yet they do their job!
Their goal is to fit runners with a product that's "right, not tight". They believe that the right amount of compression is what's necessary to do the job without having too tight of a product. So far, I'm giving this thought a thumbs up!
After Saturday's long run, my friend and I decided to travel out of town. I knew I needed to wear something on my legs for the drive over. I initially had my bright blue compression socks on but just as we were about to pull out of the driveway, the mail lady drove up with a package that contained a pair of compression sleeves just for me! Win win! (No, I didn't wear them to shop in the mall, just on the drive over!)
I love the mission of LEGEND® Compression Wear - their goal is to improve the performance of every athlete—from the casual jogger to the competitive triathlete. They also promote the notion that LEGENDS are created from great people, great courage and great accomplishments and their goal is to extend the life of your legs during the course of your entire athletic career. How cool is that?!
