As a lot of you know, 2 1/2 weeks ago, I reached out to Tommie Copper to see if I could do a product review for them, and within a couple of days I received my package of compression gear. Totally awesome, right? But what is really awesome is that this stuff WORKS! If you take nothing else from this post, please check out their gear. It is absolutely awesome, and I am so happy that I was able to try it!
I received my gear right before Luray, so I thought I would put it to the test right away. After swimming 1500 meters, biking 41 kilometers, and running 10 kilometers, I put my calve compression sleeves on immediately. It is normal for me to be super sore after racing, so I was not sure if wearing TC gear would help. Much to my surprise, it really did! I am always super sore after racing, but when I woke up on Sunday morning my legs felt really good. My hamstrings and quads were still a little sore, but my calves felt great. Maybe I need to invest in a pair of the compression shorts? Or Tommie Copper could you please start making tights? :) I would love to train in them in this winter.

|Cute and professional, right??|
Long story, short- Tommie Copper gear works and it is comfortable! Go buy some. :)
