Using An App To Help Me Stay On Path

Hello there you blank beautiful screen. It's been awhile. I took a little time last week to just step back, disconnect, and honestly breathe. I felt myself needing a breather and a moment to adjust to going back to work (part-time), Lil Man going to school full time, soccer and running for him, and just daily life. You know what I mean.

My typical morning is starting to consist of some type of early morning workout, rushing home to get lunches made, making sure I'm back in time so hubby can get to work, grabbing a quick shower, getting Lil Man to the bus stop, finally getting breakfast for me, packing my work bag, getting laundry started, cleaning up the kitchen, taking the dogs in and out and in and out...  and if possible I try to get caught up on email/social media before I head into work.

But I'm back and feeling a little more like I have things under control. I think I'm finding

Bio Skin Calf Sleeves Review


If you've been following me, then you know I'm coming back from injury (Injury Update - MRI results), and I'm a HUGE believer in compression. I wear compression sleeves while running, and I wear some type of compression for recovery. I have had issues in the past with calf cramps. Experienced runners advised compression. I listened, and I've never turned back.

So when I had the chance to check out Bio Skin Calf Sleeves, I was curious to see how they worked. When I measured my calf, I was in between a medium and a large. I was going to go with the smaller size of medium, but I was advised that it's a pretty tight fit and I might want the larger size. So I tried both a medium and a large.





The Bio Skin is definitely a tighter fit than my other compression sleeves. So if you are 'in between' sizes, I would recommend the larger size.


And the directions say not to try to put them on over wet skin, or lotion etc. I would advise you to heed this advice.... just sayin' it might not be too pretty if you don't... not admitting that I tried or anything ;) 

Overall, I was pleased with the Bio Skin Calf sleeve. I will admit that I had to adjust to the feel of the compression as it's a little more than I'm used to. I used them for recovery. And I do wish that I'd had these earlier in my injury when I required 'wrapping' my leg. I believe these would have provided the compression that I needed instead of trying to 'wrap' it. 

In addition to muscle sprains, the Bio Skin Calf sleeves are also supposed to help with shin splints. 

With my increased distance and pace runs, I've utilized the Bio Skin calf sleeves to help me to recovery for my next workout. 

So far so good....
