Good to know - thanks for the tip!

Depends on your body, I think. I have issues with my calves getting tight and screwing up other things, so compression sleeves for them make a big difference. Somehow, the compression keeps them from tightening up. I'm now battling a series of muscle and joint problems in my hip/glute/thigh and compression shorts were recommended to lend support to that area.

ITA - my CEP sleeves are great for recovery, but not so fantastic during a run. But I love my Zensah sleeves for run-duty.

Aw, thanks! Sadly, I'm not much help if you're looking to get one - I found it on clearance in the girls' section of Target. $5! They're all gone now at my Target, but might be worth a look online.

Compression tights reduce muscle vibration and support your muscles, which can reduce soreness after and extend your runs. I need the support for sure.

My orthopedic doc told me that compression socks probably will not be that helpful during the run; they maybe helpful after LR. But said if it feels good go for it.

I have hip/back pain almost always. I have used the CW-X compression shorts (sausage pants) and I like the feel, but they are quite tight. I do not always use them on runs.

I have also heard that compression socks would be good to use on the plane flight home. I am going to try that.

Okay I'm a big girl with "extra junk in the trunk" and believe it or not the MEN's CW-X compression shorts fit me perfectly. I'm not joking.

I normally wear an XL or sometimes XXL and got a mens L and perfect fit. The Shorts fit my derrier perfectly and the length goes down to an inch above my kneecap. No extra material anywhere and the compression is just what I wanted Nice and tight but still able to breath and run.

Go to your local running store and try on a pair and see what you think. It was a lady at my local running store who suggested it to me and I wanted to hug her after I finally tried it and they fit.

Lol, I've tried that too...I'm just too short

The Star Runner Tight looks cool. There was also a style with some water repellent cuffs on the bottom I was just eyeing! Darn you! Hahaha. Check out lululemon.com, it's always free shipping and you can return it in your local store if you don't wanna ship it back.
You are fabulous! Normally I'm very cheap but I think some of these just might be on the list for Santa!

Awww no prob!! I was very cheap too. I used to get $20 workout pants from target. They would fade quickly and stretch out...But one pair of lulu run crops/tights will last you about 5 years or more. The quality and fit is amazing and if something goes wrong with it (seams come apart, any type of actual quality issue), you can bring it to any store and they will fix it or replace it. The most important thing is the care. Wash on cold with like fabrics (no cottons, denims, towels), and machine dry low gentle. Avoid fabric softeners and dryer sheets on any wicking athletic fabric. Seriously working in that store was amazing! When I came back from achieving my goal of completing the Princess, my team got a photo of me from the finish from dh and had it framed and engraved for me, and surprised me with it!

I am thinking that I will pack my pre-race meal and bring it to the race retreat. Does anyone know if they had toasters in the tent in prior years?

DH just found out he has a work meeting on the 25th so he will have to leave me that morning to fly to St Louis. The good news is that he will be able to be with me Friday through Sunday. The bad news is I am alone on Monday and still planning to do the parks.

I don't mind doing a park alone, but the question is what park should I do? We were planning to do Epcot and have dinner at Le Cellier. I am going to keep that ressie until I definitely know I won't use it.

Sorry it has taken me sooo long to respond, got caught up with putting up Christmas tree before we jetted off to hawaii where I am going to get some workouts done ! Funny you should mention the asthma issue as my sister has it ! Gonna see how the week here in Hawaii goes and if still the same breathing problems then maybe a quick Dr. Visit could be in order

Jenny Hadfield's site (John Bingham's co-author and wife) has some great information

love all the info. Was just thinking why everything on me up top is small including my lungs yet I got plenty of junk in the trunk/thunder thighs on the bottom. So unfair to be short. Thanks for the answer !

This has nothing to do with anything, but the Georgia / Bama game is killing me, y'all!

Roll Tide! I wore my Roll Tide Hoodie this morning while walking my 6 miles. It was so fun to hear all of the greetings. Great game for both teams.

I walked the Susan G. Komen in Atlanta. I am so glad I am not training there. I honestly did not realize it was so hilly.

Weighing in on the compression socks/sleeves: they feel amazing after a run. I haven't tried the on a run yet though. Active.com has a groupon style thing and I just bought 3 pairs of pro compression socks for $23 each! (Normally $50)

In other news: I think I have posterior shin splints. I haven't run since Wednesday. I got fitted for inserts for my shoes, and I've been icing like crazy. My training plan starts this week with 3/3/4. Last week I did 2/2/2. The week before was 2/3/5k. Then, my last run before that was in October. FU skin cancer. Surgery made me take almost 3.5 weeks off, hence the long gap in running. I'm totally scared my pain won't go away. And either way, I am not ready for 4 miles!
