With at least two (possibly more) marathons coming up this fall, the miles are piling up and I’m doing what I can to minimize the stress on my body. When the folks at Tommie Copper asked me to try their compression products, I was more than happy to.
Tommie Copper compression gear is made from copper-infused yarns designed to relieve pain resulting from muscle, circulatory and inflammatory conditions.
According to the Tommie Copper website:
Has been used in medicine for thousands of years
Stimulates the immune system
Helps repair injured tissues
Neutralizes free radicals
Increases blood flow
Helps reduce DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness)
Due to my sordid history of ITB and achilles injuries, I tried the calf sleeves and a knee sleeve.
All sleeves were stretchy, comfortable, very lightweight and easy to put on.
They stayed in place throughout my workouts.
I wore them after hard workouts.
I even slept in them a few times.
My legs definitely felt fresher.
I feel like I’m recovering from hard efforts faster.
After my 18-miler in ridiculous heat…wait for it…I felt like I could have done more.
I think Tommie Copper Compression Sleeves are a great tool to have in your arsenal when you’re doing any kind of intense, repetitive work or training.
