Undies, knickers, pants, briefs… whatever they are called comfortable ones are a must for runners, well for everyone really. Who wants to be wearing uncomfortable undies any time? While I was buying my new running shorts I saw a rack of sports underwear and had a good look! I decided to buy a pair even though my new running shorts came with inbuilt undies. Since coming home from holidays I’ve worn them under my compression pants three times and each time they have been fabulous.
What are these very comfy running undies? They are Lorna Jane racer briefs. I highly recommend them.
Socks! I’ve tried all sorts of socks and paid all sorts of prices for them. The higher the price doesn’t necessarily mean the better the sock – at least that’s been my experience. The best socks I have had to date were free. I won them in a facebook competition. All I had to do was click on a link and put in my name and email address, so I did. I wasn’t going to enter this competition because the socks were a pair of running toe socks. I’m quite fascinated by barefoot running since I read Born to Run, but haven’t even dipped a little toe into it as yet! I watched an accompanying youtube that had a runner in normal looking shoes (as in not the toed variety) who was promoting these socks. So I thought, sounds interesting, might as well enter, I did and I won!
I have worn these socks three times since being home from holidays (they arrived while I was away) and they are simply the most comfortable socks I’ve ever worn. I’ve run a 10k, a 5k and a 12k run in them.
What I like about them:
- They don’t fall down! The cuff is a little higher than the usual ankle sock.
- The cuff is really comfortable and not too tight.
- They are foot specific and have little logos on either side so I know which foot to put them on! In fact it’s really hard to put them on the wrong foot because of the way the toes are woven.
- They feel really good – they sort of have different tensions through the whole construction of the sock which means they don’t wriggle around at all.
What about the individual toe? Is that a bit funny feeling? Honestly I thought it might be but after trying them it’s no problem, in fact it makes for a very comfortable foot!
I will be buying some more of these.
What are these comfy running socks? Injinji Toe Socks Performance 2.0, original weight and pink.
I’m not usually one for product reviews but am so happy with these two products so thought I would share them with you.
Happy running 🙂
I’ve been home from holidays for three days and it has been quite a weather shock, we’ve gone from 29°C down to a low of -4.7°C this morning, complete with a hard white frost. Winter is here.
