Some of you may have noticed a trend in my Breaks Vacation photos yesterday ... I wore my Zensah compression socks, a lot.
Dad said he noticed a few people looking at my strangely, but I'm totally oblivious to it! At first I brought them with me to wear in the car but they were just so comfortable I ended up wearing them almost daily while hiking around. I asked around after I started suffering from some pretty severe shin splints and Zensah was continually recommended to me. I contacted Zensah a few weeks ago and asked if they'd be interested in working with me and they were nice enough to send me a pair to try out.
I started battling with shin pain after I increased my mileage for my marathon training. I know some people are skeptical about their effectiveness and I was part of that camp for a while. Honestly, it wasn't until I started working at the hospital and heard our doctors prescribe them to patients suffering from vascular disease that I started to research them more seriously.
I started wearing them a few days before I left on my trip and I am not exaggerating - my shin splints have virtually disappeared. After 4 consecutive runs where I had to stop and massage my shins I wore my Zensah socks to bed and ran completely pain free the next day. Coincidence? I doubt it. I've been wearing the socks almost daily since then, sometimes to bed at night, sometimes just around the house for a few hours and I haven't had any shin pain.
After about 10 days of almost daily wear I noticed they didn't seem quite as tight as they first were. I threw them in the wash and they returned to their original compression levels! The shelf life for compression socks is about 6-9 months. Well worth the investment and I can't wait to try our more products from Zensah!
