>Running 101>Compression gear?
I was doing some browsing on the internet today and I came across compression sleeves, and socks and pretty much compression stuff for every part of the body. What's the purpose of it? As a beginner runner should I be wearing any?
Started c25k on 5/30/11
It's mostly about style.
"run" "to" "eat"

Something something about reducing muscle vibration / improved circulation, personnally I am hoping all the vibration helps tone me.

I just wear it to look cool.
Because, really, who DOESNT look cool in knee-high black socks.
And once again Mr. Wizard (aka: Stevie Ray) explains the internet.
Didn't some else just explain that compression gear is very helpful if you are aiming for interesting tan lines.
My other pass time ....
I have to wear compression shorts to keep from walkin' like a cowboy after 10miles of running.
