Give Your Legs Some Love With Run Forever Sports Compression Sleeves

Full Disclosure: I received products free of charge for the purpose of providing a review. My opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

The fact that I love compression should not be a surprise to you by now. But, not all compression is created equal. So I encourage you that if you've tried compression in the past and wasn't a fan, try a different brand/kind and give it another try.

I do have my "go to" compression socks/sleeves, and I have the ones that I wear as a last resort because all of my other clothes are dirty. :)

So when I was given the opportunity to try
Run Forever Sports Calf Compression Sleeves, I was definitely curious to give them a try.

They are graduated, and yes to me it makes a difference. In other words, the top of the sleeve has less compression as the calf/shin part of the sleeve, and the bottom of this sleeve is high compression.

When I went to put on the Run Forever Sports Calf Compression Sleeves, it wasn't easy to slip the bottom of the sleeve over my foot. I mean it wasn't a massive struggle or anything, but it did require a little work to get the compression sleeve on. My first thought as I was trying to get them situated was 'uh oh, these might be a little too much compression'. Like I said, not all compression sleeves are created equal. In my personal opinion, some are too tight, some are too loose and some are just right.

But once I had the Run Forever Sports Calf compression sleeve on,

I forgot that I was wearing them. And to me, that was perfect and the compression was just right! These calf sleeves by Run Forever Sports do have a little more compression that some of the other sleeves that I have tried, but I find them to be excellent Calf Sleeves and I have worn them several times. Yes, they are in my "go to" pile. :) And yes, the compression definitely helps with any shin splits or calf pain that I have. 

And for anyone curious, calf sleeves aren't just for runners/athletes. I wear these when I'm on my feet a lot. Actually, I wish I'd known about them when I worked retail, as they would have definitely helped with my leg cramps. 

Overall, I am extremely pleased with the Run Forever Calf Compression Sleeves. If you are looking for a pair of sleeves, I suggest you check them out.

  1. I bought some compression sleeves to help with those shin splints I was suffering from last month. I didn't run in them, but I used them for recovery. Did they help? Did they make a difference? I don't know. And yesterday I read an article cautioning about their use, citing concerns about DVTs (blood clots). I'm going to do more research and most likely post about it on the blog in the future. I have a lot of friends who swear by them, tho!

    1. I won't run without them (or even do any work that really involves my calves) since I had my calf tear. They have made a HUGE difference for me. But I'm curious to see what research you find out about DVTs and the correlation to compression. And I'm curious as to what kind of compression. I know that I have one pair that I don't really like because they are just way too tight.

Self Care Is Not Selfish It's Necessary

It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. And I'll say it just one more time in case you didn't hear me. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. I have found through experience that when I'm not taking care of myself, not only do I suffer but my family suffers. So ditch the mom guilt and take the time that you need! I have a tendency to keep pushing my needs aside until I reach a breaking point. We've had a very busy fun summer so far. However, I've struggled to get some quality ' me ' time to decompress. I'll spare you the meltdown that ensued. But the reality check that followed prompted me to take action.

Running My Life

Wow, has it really been 2 years since my last post? I suppose that I allowed life to get in the way. For any faithful blog readers, I apologize. Although, I'm not sure how many people actually read blogs anymore. I think most people use other social media platforms.  (By the way, drop by and say hi on Insta. )  But for some reason, each year when I pay for my google domain, I can't seem to let it go. As silly as it sounds, this little space is mine. And lately I've been struggling with ownership and acceptance. And my domain renewal was a not so gentle reminder that I have a voice .  Seriously, you'd think by 48 that I'd have this figured out - nope - apparently not. However, I am wise enough to know that we have a choice to allow situations to harms us or make us stronger. I'm choosing to let this mid-life quandary make me stronger. And because of this, I'm setting goals, taking charge, and reexamining priorities.  Movin' on... 

When The Planner In You Must Be Flexible

In case you haven’t figured this out by now, I’m a planner. I know - shocker right?!? :) So although I love substitute teaching, it’s making the planner in me anxious. And it’s been reeking havoc on my workouts. Basically the morning of or maybe the night before, I find out if I’m working. So my day ( that I thought I had planned ) can be turned upside down in an instant. But, truthfully, isn’t that really the same with everyone?
