While in marathon training prep mode, I discovered the benefits of compression apparel. I’ve tried a few different brands (and liked them all!), but one of my favorites is Lunatik Athletiks. I love what the brand stands for:
“Lunatik Athletiks is an athletic apparel company created with the extreme athlete in mind. The dictionary definition itself identifies a “lunatik” as being “wildly or giddily foolish, insane, and is characterized by eccentricity”, all of which have also been used to describe particular athletes. Endurance and extreme athletes are often referred to as being crazy, insane or a “lunatik” for enduring the dedication, focus, training, sacrifice, and pain associated with their particular athletic endeavours. Lunatik Athletiks hopes to support these athletes reach their athletik goals and lifelong dreams by providing the highest quality athletic apparel.”
I love that sentiment:
I also love the look of their apparel. A lot of compression gear is plain old black. Some socks are cooler, solid colors, but Lunatik Athletiks really steps outside the box with bright colors and funky patterns. I tend to like fabrics that are a little eccentric, so I was super excited when Lunatik Athletiks agreed to send me a pair of their super cute compression socks to review.
I debated which pattern to get and ended up with these Rockin Dots socks! They make me feel so cute while I’m running and huffing and puffing and red-faced and sweaty (paint you a nice picture? – ha!).
Compression socks are suppose to help you recover faster form workouts, prevent injuries, improve blood circulation, reduce muscle vibration, and provide relief for tired/aching legs. I’ve worn them on every long training run so far, and no sore calves yet! Cute and effective? Win!
