My Thoughts and Obsession of CEP Compression

Just to get this out of the way - these thoughts are my own. This is NOT a sponsored post...this is me sharing with you my obsession and love of CEP Compression products.
So...let's start with the fact that most of you know that I partially tore my achilles about 2 years ago.  It's not a full tear and doctors really can't do anything for it.  Now mind you, I have had some doctors tell me to just give up running...YEA, like that would EVER happen.  My achilles is hit or miss -- here lately it's been mostly hit.  No pain, tweaks, ability not to walk, etc.  The last BIG flare up was back in August the week before Austin's birthday.  I contribute a lot of the lack of misses to my amazing running compression socks and the fabulous RxOrtho Achilles Brace
A little from their website -- WHY COMPRESSION? Every muscle cell needs energy in the form of oxygen. This is transported to the muscles via the blood. The better the blood flow in the arteries, the better the muscles are supplied – and precisely this supply can be positively influenced by compression.  But, not all types of compression are the same.Working at Fleet Feet Sports helps me to hear about products before a lot of people do.  I am blessed to get to work with (and have worked with) some of the best sales and tech reps across the nation.  My CEP rep is no different.  After doing a presentation for some of our newer employees and introducing the new achilles brace, I asked her if I could just try it on.  I wanted to see how it felt and I was just coming off a long run and it was acting up a little bit (unfortunately my new normal).  Right away I could feel the support.  There is a bubble like piece that wraps on the achilles and puts a slight pressure on.  It immediately helped relieve the pressure.  The first couple days I lived in it.  Now, I more use it on the days my achilles is sore and acting up to give it a little more circulation and support. If you have any type of achilles issue, I would highly recommend you check out this product.

 Now my SOCKS :)The last thing I want to share is about CEP Compression running socks.  I currently own 3 pairs and want to order a couple more.  I use them for running and CrossFit. My legs always feel more fresh.  I feel as though the improved circulation really help my performance. I currently have the pink, green and black progressive one.  I really want the red and white progressive!  

That's all -- some people have been asking my opinion on them so here you go :)

Have a good day!!
