Cep Compression Socks- Giveaway

A couple of weeks ago I won some CEP compression socks from Momma of 3 on the Run. I have really been wanting to try out these socks, since doing long runs for half marathon training I felt the need to have some. I also knew I had the 15k coming up and that would be a great time to give em' a try. As a newbie to these socks I wasn't sure if I should run while wearing them or wear them after a run, I choose to wear them after. I selected the pink ones shown above and let me tell you these babies made my tired legs feel pretty dang good! I am sure all of us runners are somewhat the same but my legs are more tired and achy after a race rather than training, guessing its because we wanna WIN (or in my case try to place in my age group!) After our 15k we planned on going to our local festival, so I went home and put on my compression socks for a couple of hours before. (If you haven't read my recap of the 15k check it out HERE) My tired, achy legs felt wonderful while wearing and after wearing these fabulous socks!! I even put them back on when I got back home. After wearing them I now see how they would also be awesome to wear during a race which I am considering for our upcoming half .

      Train Harder. Race Faster. Recover Quicker.
          I like this saying from the CEP site!!

Now for the best part, for you lovely followers that is. When Jamie with Cep   contacted me about what size socks I needed, she also offered for me to do a giveaway!! Check out these awesome green socks you can also select
I really like these as well!

Hard choice between the green and the pink socks. Would have to paper rock scissors that decision for sure. Love both of them.

Wells L said...

I have never worn compression socks for the exact reason you pose in your question - when should they be worn (long run, after running, to bed after a long run, all day every day)? I would love to win a pair and try them out. It's the one piece of running gear I don't have but really think would be helpful!

i have a pair of "recovery socks" and run in them when its cool enough outside and it does seem to make for a more comfortable run, i always wear them after a long run and it seems to help the recovery process a little

I have worn compression socks to bed on the night before a big run/race, or the night after a big/run race. I find that they speed the recovery process, even in the upper legs.

I've worn compression socks for both running and recovery. I generally only wear them while running when I have a specific issue I'm protecting, such as a calf tweak or knot, and sometimes while racing in chillier temps. Otherwise I love them for after long runs, hard workouts and races. I've tried both OxySox (prefer to run in these) and the Recovery Sock and I'm eager to try out CEP.

I have Zensah compression socks and compression sleeves. I only wear them for recovery/injury prevention.
I ran in the socks once but they were hot and I didn't feel a difference.
I pretty much wear the socks to bed every night and I wear the sleeves under my pants all the time. I LOVE compression! It's gotten me through shin splints and a calf strain.

the pink would so match my shoes and pink running outfit!
