Recovery Fashion

It has been a recovery week this week. Most of my rides have looked like this

and this

Always looking for ways to speed recovery I have been wearing compression stockings. Fancy huh? Paula Radcliffe races in them and she is fast as fast can be. This could be the start of a whole new fashionista trend in mountain biking. I think stockings with pre-printed chain ring marks would be cute…

I’ve had a few of my athletes try them out and one told me he would so long as I called them athletic support socks . Hey how about these ones M?

I’m pretty addicted to them. I do spend quite a bit of time with my legs down under a desk. When I take the athletic support socks off my calves feel fresh and loose instead of tight and dull. I might even have to wear them between laps at Park City Perfect 10 tomorrow. Dave and I are racing SS duo.
