Good morning ladies and gents. It is no surprise that I am not running BUT I have been utilizing the Pro Compression Marathon socks as a tool in my recovery arsenal. While I debated putting off my review until I was running I just don’t think thats fair to you guys : ) plus I don’t think many people have reviewed these babies as part of surgery recovery process (for any of you that are new, I tore my ACL and got surgery 5/21 – progress update).
Post surgery I have been wearing my marathon socks along with my ice machine. They help to keep the circulation going in my lower legs and move the extra fluid up where it can be disposed of. Immediately following surgery my feet, ankles, calves, knees, quads, EVERYTHING were swollen. It hurt a little bit to squeeze into the socks but when I did my legs started to feel instantly better.Before surgery my knee was still in pretty rough shape. I was working out because the Dr. told me that the more muscle I maintain pre-surgery the faster my recovery would be. I was doing a lot of circuit training (Check out this twist on the Men’s Health Spartacus work out) that would leave me exhausted and sore. Seeing as I typically work out mid day at the office, I would throw my compression socks on under my work clothes and let them help in my leg recovery all day.I seriously don’t have enough good things to say about these socks. They made my legs feel a million times better in just a matter of minutes. While I can’t speak to how fabulous they probably make your leg feel when you are running I can tell you that they are magical for recovery and at doing their job of increasing circulation and moving fluid up where it belongs.
