So, if you’ve seen any running pictures of me (and if you’ve ever even glanced at this blog, I’m sure you have) you will quickly see that I wear shin compression sleeves. And not just any skin compressions sleeves, bu ZENSAH sleeves! In all honesty I’ve never really tried other pairs because I truly believe “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.” Nice English. Anyway, you know what I mean. Let’s put this out there: I. <3. (LOVE). ZENSAH
So, you get the point. Anyway, I wanted, therefore, to try Zensah’s Base Layer compression shorts.
I like wearing compression shorts under my running shirt, capris, tights, shorts, etc. for races only. I feel like it gives me an advantage (maybe mental) especially in my groin area, which used to get sore. Suzanne from Zensah sent me a pair to try. In all fairness, she did warn me that they were really more for training and would not be nearly as tight as the other ones I usually raced in, as they were for training purposes.
So, in a nutshell, Suzanne was correct. I could not race in these compression shorts, but they are perfect for training. I highly recommend these for training, as well as the calf compression sleeves. I also really like their running shirt. I do not have a picture right now, but trust me, it is cute. Here is a google pic.
I don’t know if it is the way I am made or what, but the crotch hangs REALLY low and I have to constantly pull them up. Bummer. Anyway, overall I HIGHLY recommend Zensah products and thank Suzanne for allowing me to sample this awesome product. I am a willing and able tester 😉
