Happy Sunday! We were able to enjoy an overnight with just the baby thanks to my parents! It was nice to have just one child to attend to 🙂 even though the haze and tiredness sort of took over and rest was the overall goal!
I’m pretty wiped out!

I’m seeking out “biker shorts” – that’s what I call them 🙂  that don’t ride up.
These are 2 different pairs of Athleta ones – they are SO short! and they ride up.
What is your favorite pair for running?

I’m getting back into running and 5/6 days a week I’ll get in some kind of workout! We had a few awesome mornings this week so I got up to run a couple of them – low humidity, temps in the low 60s. Beautiful! Great way to start the day. I can’t do it everyday because some nights are harder than others! I am already excited for fall mornings and cooler weather though!  I have been testing out the SLS3 compression socks!

These socks are super tight (good), and a little difficult to get on (which I’ve found is typical of good compression socks).  I love the butterfly design and colors that are available. These feel good while running and are supposed to help with performance and circulation, as well as recovery time. I think they are great!  The best test will be wearing them for the Rock n’ Roll half that I will be running on Halloween!  For now, I’m been wearing them for my 2 mile runs and am really enjoying them!

“SLS3 Butterfly compression socks boost bloodflow by about 34%. This increases oxygen delivery to the working muscles to enhance their performance. The circulation improvements also help the body eliminate metabolic waste products like lactic acid more easily. The combination of these effects allows you to work longer and harder, delaying the onset of fatigue.  The SLS3 Butterfly compression socks offer more targeted, significant support to the achilles tendons, tibias, calves and ankles, thus boosting the ability to reduce common ankle and foot injuries.”

The socks retail for $54.90 and you can purchase them here! If you sign up for their emails you can save 30% and get free shipping!
