I received these socks from The Sock Mine a few days ago and I have had a chance to wear them on a couple of runs over some hilly terrain with my trainers on of course. Very comfortable and smooth on the foot. For a technical sock the price is excellent. The blurb on them says “These lightweight running socks provide soft cushioning in major contact areas, whilst the moisture management system from the COOLMAX yarn wicks away moisture from the skin leaving feet comfortable and dry.”
I have about 10 pairs of running socks and these are by far the best i have tried.
Before I went to bed last night I planned on getting up early to go for a run before I start work. In an effort to limit the excuses not to go when I inevitably wake up completely unmotivated I make sure I lay my running kit out with the laces undone, water bottle filled and alarm set. When 06:00 came around I looked at the window and started my excuses not to go:
- It’s to dark
- I can go later
- It might rain
then from nowhere I climb out of bed do 20 push ups, get my kit on and get out running.
This pretty much happens every time I try an early midweek run. I am always glad I when I have done it though and it sets up my day so well.
I’m trying to train in hilly areas as much as possible with the Glencoe Marathon in mind. This is of course really easy to do because I live in North Wales. I went for a small plod this afternoon. I say small because I have a niggling injury in my lower left leg. I have dusted the bike off to do some cross training to take out some of the impact on my legs.
