Marathon Training with Pro Compression Socks #KeepItTight

**** I was provided with a pair of black marathon socks from Pro Compression, as a Sweat Pink Ambassador,  in exchange for this review. As always, all opinions are my own!

Training for the Wineglass Marathon has been fraught with disaster from the start! I have injured my toe in a half marathon and tweaked my calf this weekend at a mud run! Yikes!
Pro Compression to the rescue! My calf had actually being bothering me all week, so when I did the Westfield 5K on Wednesday night, I planned ahead and wore my shiny new black socks to make sure that I didn't make matters worse! That race was my 5K test run for my injured toe, and I really didn't want to trade one injury for another!

Normally I wear my compression socks or sleeves for recovery, but I made the exception that night! I wore the outfit below for the Old Port Half Marathon, and the cute Shamrock Socks afterwards, on the drive home. They are such a soothing relief after a hilly race!

From their website:
From the moment you slip on a pair of PRO Compression socks you will benefit from the science and comfort behind the ‘graduated compression’ technology that is felt mainly around the ankle.
Whether at rest, playing a round of golf or running a marathon, your PRO Compression socks are working to circulate blood back to your heart and lungs. With more efficient circulation comes less fatigue and your tired muscles are replenished with fresh oxygen and nutrients to reduce soreness and give you the extra stamina needed to exert yourself at the fullest.

PRO Compression socks are super comfortable and padded in all the right places, reducing every-day stress your feet and legs go through during normal activity.

Some say our socks feel like a second skin offering the optimal amount of compression to keep muscles toned and supported. We’ve also heard from customers in colder climates that who say they wear our socks exclusively because they are the only sock that keeps their toes toasty and warm as a result of the circulation-inducing properties of the material.

After Saturday's mud run, I put on my Christmas Striped socks to help my sore calf, and they are so pretty! Double the help for my sore calf! Having that compression on my calf made walking around that night so much easier!

I also have several pairs of sleeves, and I wore one of them on Sunday morning while I did PiYo, since my calf was still achey. It's a good look, right? It definitely gave my calf the extra support it needed during the intense workout!

Can you tell that I love their product? I already have several pairs of socks as well as sleeves, in a wide variety of colors!
Are you in love yet? I knew you would be! What could possibly be better than these awesome socks? A coupon code! Use the code PINK and receive 40% off of your next pair of socks!

Which color or pattern will you try?

      I had to defer Wineglass due to injury, but next year will be the year!
