Compression Tights Rock

I have only worn my new compression tights on two runs but I may start wearing them:

To work







To buy groceries







To shop









To take out the garbage









You may be wondering why I am going to wear them everywhere.

Is it because they speed recovery of my legs after running?  


Is it because they lightly massage my muscles as I am running? 


 Perhaps it is because my legs don't get as tired when I am running a long distance?

Well any of the above could be true but I have not had them long enough to know the answer to any of those questions. What I do know is that after I posted a picture when I was wearing them I read comments like you look:

"like a lean, fierce running machine"


"look awesome, tough and hardcore"


"cute in compression"


"make you look super fast"


"make your legs look SKINNY" (the caps are my touch)


(plus very flattering comments from my husband and running partner!)

So do I care what they do??? NOT ONE BIT! It's all about the look you present. So what if people were reading my blog when they were tired and their eyes must have been blurry or after that 6th cold brew!
I'm going with the comments posted and LOVING my new tights!

hmmm...i could stand to:

look like a lean, fierce running machine"
"look awesome, tough and hardcore"
"cute in compression"
"make you look super fast"
"make your legs look SKINNY"

The only problem for me is in Texas, I'd probably Sweat to death in them. :)

You do look awesome in them. Definitely worth wearing everywhere.

Jill said...

Imagine is everything, you totally got your priorities straight!!

Ewa said...

OK, I want YOUR compression tights. Mine, though they feel great, make my legs look like sausages. I am totally envious of the way you look in yours. Maybe if I lost some weight...
You do look awesome!

Julie said...

Oh my God, I loved this post!! You are pretty funny and witty at times:) I love that about you!! You really do look pretty damm good in those compression tights and it was money well spent!! I want some flipping compression tights so that I can look as good as you:)

Lisa said...

So what kind are they? I'd like to get a pair but they are sooo expensive.

Meg said...

Your blog made me laugh! I once wore my Zoot compression tights to the nursery to buy vegetable plants and all I got were stares! I DO love the feeling of wearing these tights after a long run and under jeans. They feel great(and look wonderful on you!).

Can't say I would wear my compression tights for anything other than running, but I sure do love mine!

Michelle said...

You do look great in them!

Jen said...

What kind do you have?

Suzy said...

I'd be lying if I said I'm not jealous of your new tights. They look awesome and if they feel half that good then by all means, wear them everywhere! (Although, I would suggest wearing them under other pants for some of the listed activities.)

Amy said...

I am sold!! I will have to get some of those - and wear them everywhere, just like you. Who knows, we could be starting a new trend...
