Circulate. Protect. Recover
Great article from Jess Horton, The Fit Petite
If you run with me, then you know I begin to burn up quickly running outdoors…even on the coldest of days. One accessory I usually have with me are my SureSport Compression Sleeves. I wear my sleeves usually under my long sleeve layer at the beginning of most races or long runs. They are the perfect piece for me because my body temp fluctuates during a race and I can flip the sleeves up or down. This easy access accessory is less cumbersome than pulling an other layer over my head. On one of the bitter cold Saturdays we had in February I wore my sleeves under my fleece running turtleneck. About halfway into an 11 miler, my top layer came off and my tank and arm sleeves were exposed. This was the perfect layer to keep me semi-covered and comfortable for the double digit miles.
On Shamrock Half Marathon Day, Virginia Beach could serve us up any range of temperatures. Chances are, like last year I will be in shorts but will be sporting my arm sleeves. Alongside their sleeves, SureSport offers a full line of compression as well. Their compression socks would be a great option for runners on race day as well. SureSport arm sleeves and compression socks do more than keep you warm. They help reduce muscle soreness as well.
Arm compression sleeves are used by athletes of all levels in all sports because they ensure proper circulation, provide some protection and improve workout recovery.

Other special features include a non-compression toe-box for superior comfort. Compression socks can be worn for many purposes such as racing, post-workout, recovery, and travel.
They may be worn pre-exercise to reduce the risk of injury and help with muscle activation, during exercise to optimize athletic performance, or post-exercise to deliver faster muscle recovery. They can also be used during long flights or car rides to reduce swelling in the lower legs and feet and help aid in preventing blood clots and varicose veins.
