I'm very new to running (I'm on Week 3 of C25K) and a little obsessed with running gear right now! I just got a second pair of Asics Gel-Excite 4's- love these shoes!

I also got diagnosed with venous stasis in my calves not too long ago, and compression socks are saving my life! I tried a couple different brands but my favorites are the Sockwells brand: I wear them to work too (medical assistant in a very busy clinic) and my legs/feet feel SO much better!

Third and finally, I bought a merino neck gaiter and it's been a lifesaver. It's cold and dry where I live, and I've got asthma, so it's nice to be able to pull my neck warmer up over my mouth when I'm running. Cold, dry air can really irritate my lungs.

I rode through deserts and sun that lasers you dead. These items might help:

hoy boy as someone with mild/moderate foot issues and a history of working in a shoe store do i have some advice for you

a lot of pain can come from how your feet are positioned, especially if it reaches up into your joints. do you pronate or supinate, for instance? do you have flat feet or higher arches? any of those can really do a number on your feet and joints. usually pronators get running shoes that have extra support, whereas supination (unless severe) and arch issues are usually corrected with insoles.

i have high arches and wide feet myself, which puts extra pressure onto the balls of my feet and my heels. ive found that the winning combination for me is a shoe with a lot of cushion, a larger toe box, and extra support. at the moment im wearing a pair of dr martens to work daily, and i have these particular insoles on top, not replacing the original insole.

asics makes really nice shoes, as does mizuno. they make special shoes for pronators and for shin splint issues as well. back when i worked food service, i would wear SFC (shoes for crews) because i got a discount through my employer. never paid more than $50 for a pair and they were non slip. they always wore out within a few months though. nowadays, i wear my docs or a pair of vans (although the former is more comfortable)

i also suggest some good compression socks. i wear these from sockwell. one of the reasons your feet hurt at work is due to blood pooling in your feet, and this helps to circulate that blood. it seems a bit pricey up front (i bought maybe 2 pairs per paycheck until i had enough) but they will last forever. don't even really need special washing/drying.

during the breaks you do get, you should prop your feet up on something. this helps blood travel back up your legs and reduces swelling. you can also stack insoles (i used to wear a pair of full length gel insoles with my arch insoles) if it doesn't make your shoe too tight. you should also check to see how much orthotics would cost – it might be helpful to some degree. otherwise full length gel insoles are fantastic. i would avoid the ones advertised as "massaging" however – they have these hard plastic beads where your feet go. it feels a bit like stepping on rocks.

i know this was long but i hope it was somewhat helpful!!

I'm wary of skin cancer. I'm making the switch from long distance biking to long distance hiking, and when I was biking through the desert I always wore knee covers, arm covers, and a hat thing I found for under my helmet.

I would simply rather cover up than gamble with burns and/or cancer :/

u/ToSeeOrNotToBe · 4 pointsr/running

I like compression socks for recovery but I don't like how they make my feet feel during the run, so I got these calf compression sleeves and it's so nice. Now I can wear whatever socks I want to during the run and still get the benefit of compression on my lower legs. Then I wear super tight compression socks after my shower.

I know there's some debate over whether compression helps during the run, but I can tell a difference for myself. I'm less sore after long runs when I wear the sleeves.

u/napiscrafty · 4 pointsr/BabyBumps

I traveled from Texas to Northern Alaska at 20 weeks - so not international but still long flights. I recommend compression socks while flying. I have a pair from Sockwell that are cuter than the ugly white ones.

I traveled for fun a lot (all 7 continents, almost all of the US) before getting pregnant and I can say that at 24 weeks I wouldn't be able to keep up with my past travel habits. My hips hurt at the end of every day and I'm so sleepy. If you're willing to modify your expectations for the trip I think you could have a blast.

I was planning a trip to Costa Rica at 31 weeks but Zika happened so now I'm back to the beginning planning stages.

u/SpaceTimeBender · 4 pointsr/POTS

I was a little worried about that before getting them, but the ones I posted about are pretty comfy! There isn't too much digging in, and I tend to be pretty sensitive to itchy and uncomfortable things like that (I even get hives in the pressure indentations sometimes). I have relatively small calves though, so I may not be the best judge.

I did get another brand of compression socks which feel more like 15-20 mmHg than 20-30 of the ones I originally posted, so I reserve them for better days, but they're not quite as tight at the top. Maybe you could check these ones out too!

(Also I absolutely live in high waisted pocket leggings. I didn't realize I had been accidentally treating my symptoms for years - I just knew I felt good wearing them, hah! I can probably find you some links to my favorites, if you'd like. 😊)

u/maple_blondie · 4 pointsr/xxfitness

Look at Queeniekee from Amazon. These are good cardio compressive leggings QUEENIEKE Women Workout Leggings...

u/AnyelevNokova · 4 pointsr/BabyBumps

Yes, you can. I wear knee-high compression socks my entire 12.5 hour shift. I wear these and really like them - several of my coworkers wear that brand as well and are happy with them.

u/CompleteDark · 3 pointsr/running

Check out Baleaf tights on Amazon or these which I really like and they're currently only $20.

u/jilsander · 3 pointsr/malefashionadvice

they're like cold weather masks, usually like a neoprene sleeve that fits around your nose and mouth and covers your neck. if you google "neoprene mask" you'll find a bunch of them.

it could also be a scarf or a bandanna or something

edit: i actually dont think neoprene is standard. i have one of these. it's pretty useless to be honest

u/cahutchins · 3 pointsr/Montana

North-east Montana ain't so bad weather-wise, it gets hot — 90 or 100 degree days are common, 110 isn't unheard of — but it's not near as hot as a southwestern state, and not as humid as a southeastern state.

If you're working outside a lot, a neck cooler and a neck shade can be a big help.

If you have testicles, Gold Bond Medicated Powder is a summer life saver.

u/scooby_noob · 3 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I would avoid french terry (for pants at least), because I think it's the worst for doing this. I have these adidas soccer pants and they definitely don't stretch out, though they aren't as comfortable as conventional fleece sweatpants.

u/stevil30 · 3 pointsr/homegym

not to take away anything you did but --> adapter sleeve

and your do-it-yourself-skills are to be admired.. i need to learn to weld

u/meesterzeebers · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

I myself used these running socks for my last 6 weeks, if you'd like to look at more options.

u/CTSVERROR · 2 pointsr/C25K

I hear compression leg sleeves work great for shin splints. I purchased these for me calves but readying the reviews a lot of people use them for shin splints.

u/captainjetski · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

You can get sleeves with thumb and finger holes in them. I worked in a cold absement for a few years and those helped me. I realize it isn't a full solution to your problem, but it did help me a bit. Something like these but maybe more insulated

u/bloodpressures · 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Just bought these and they are AWESOME: Lingswallow High Waist Yoga Pants...

u/vhalros · 2 pointsr/Fitness

You could get an adapter sleeve like this and just cut it in half or something. You could also slip it onto 3/4" pipe (I've done it with that model; you will have to press really hard, but it can be done) and make your own dumbbell handle. Use some hose clamps as collars.

u/beekerc · 2 pointsr/pokemongo

there are lots of gloves which have special tips on the thumb and fore-finger (or all of them) which are designed to be readable by touch screens.

something like this;

u/greenbeantime · 2 pointsr/BB30

I know! :( I wish I had better advice, but mine was so related to the heat!

I think it also helped when I was able to walk around during the day - I sit at a desk all day long at work, so I started making sure I got up at least once an hour to get water or use the bathroom or just go for a short walk, and it helped a lot.

These are the compression socks I bought for myself. They're comfortable enough, though I don't know if they really helped my swelling. I stopped being able to wear them pretty quickly because I got so big that I had a hard time bending enough to get them on (they're tight!)

Edit to add: The socks were also good at not overheating my feet! I wore them mostly during July/August and I was worried they'd make my feet super hot (I hate when my feet are hot, makes my whole body uncomfortable!) and they actually breathed well and kept me from overheating while I was wearing them.

u/mm_bacon · 2 pointsr/running

I've worn compression sleeves for shin splints and they've worked great. Er maybe it was placebo? Either way, my shins felt/feel way better.

u/kleinePfoten · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Good to hear that! Any recommendations for lower-priced shorts? I've got my eye on these / two, hoping they can keep my big butt covered without going halfway down my leg (I hate that so much it's SO uncomfortable), but I have no clue.

u/bluemo0n · 1 pointr/running

I have these and I like them a lot so far! Great customer service too-I ordered the wrong size and inquired about returning them and they immediately refunded me. I also have a pair of compression socks from Physix that I like as well.

u/sizzle_tits · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

I can relate to the body aches and missing beer. I am on my feet all day at work too and find that I can't live without my Zensah compression leg sleeves and my Alegria shoes. My hips have been killing me since the second trimester and I get wicked sciatic pain, which feels like someone is poking me with electricity or a knife in my butt crack at the most convenient of times. Hang in there, we can make it.

Let's talk about the beer for a minute- summer is the worse time to be preggos. I am not a big drinker at all, but I do miss having a nice beer or cocktail while out to eat or just on a hot summer afternoon. Here's to you Oberon (one of my go to summer beers), I'll drink you again next summer. Also just found out my favorite restaurant is opening a taco stand/speak easy combo this fall... I can't wait to have this baby and try a prohibition era cocktail with a side of tacos.

u/Agallujah · 1 pointr/tattoos

I bought a pair of these on amazon. I like them so far but it hasn't been super nice out to use them a whole lot.

u/glynnf · 1 pointr/xxfitness

Adidas pants like these from amazon. Good price, and I don't notice my phone jostling even when running. Plus it is a zipper pocket.

u/mgrier · 1 pointr/Fibromyalgia

Go see someone who specializes in hand pain and hand surgery. In the Seattle area, Dr. William Ericson in Montlake Terrace WA has been great and helped me quite a bit. I somewhat suspect that some of my own hand issues are related to greater use of small devices like phones and tablets that I can use when lying down in bed. I have a hard time differentiating what hand pain is due to my prior life as a software engineer vs. the car accident which led to the FM vs. my change in behaviors due to the accident and FM.

Right now I'm wearing compression gloves that I got on Amazon. I think they help, as compression shirts help with my torso pain.

I initially got large compression gloves but I wasn't happy with the level of compression so I found these which were a size down. Your hands are probably smaller than mine so just search around for something with good ratings and is prime eligable.

u/[deleted] · 1 pointr/Gunners

I can't do the treadmill, man. I used to hate cold weather so much that I'd get a gym membership over the winter, but then I'd get back out on the road in the spring and it felt like I was starting over, like the treadmill didn't help me at all. Plus it's boring as all hell.

For when it's really cold I have a neck warmer that also covers your mouth:

u/Fluxanoia · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace
u/blckbirdd · 1 pointr/AskReddit

I have and they seem to help. I can't promise they will be an end-all cure but wear them around during the day (even during running) and they may help you. Here are the ones that I own, I know there a lot of people who swear by these things. I don't use mine too often anymore because I have gotten over the shin-splint hump (eventually you will also, just don't give up hope), but at the height of my shin pain, I would never run without these things.

u/cpxh · 1 pointr/boston

I buy a pair of these every other year. They tend to only last two years, but for under $10 that's ok.

I just leave them in my coat pocket so I always have them.

If it is really cold out I will wear these and put my hands in my coat pocket.

u/Zoraptera · 1 pointr/InfertilityBabies

I got Sockwell brand ones -- Amazon has lots of choices (here's the one I got) I actually found them a godsend because my plane was FREEZING COLD. But they do feel nice on swollen feet/ankles, too!

u/SD_Bitch · 1 pointr/ChronicPain

I've had some stellate blocks that have worked wonders for my diabetic neuropathy, and the pain specialist is who got that going for me. Being the scatterbrain that I am, I make sure I take a written list of my symptoms and goals with me to each appointment, and then just hand it to them. Then they can ask more specific questions and help work on a plan for you.

Have you tried compression socks and gloves? Whenever my neuropathy pain gets bad, compression socks and gloves are my saviors. Especially if I need to go grocery shopping or do a lot of standing chores, putting the socks on beforehand really helps curb the cumulative pain. Might be worth a shot if you haven't tried it.

u/stumpy25ak · 1 pointr/running

I got shin splints pretty bad when I got back into running (15 year break, lol). You sound a lot like me, I couldn't get them to go away. I tried compression sleeves, and they worked like magic!

I bought these.

I wear them while I run, and for a few hours after, maybe more depending on how long I run for.

Before, a mile would kill me. After several months, I'm running 8+ without pain - unless I forget to wear them. I'm no expert, perhaps I need to check my form as well, but they worked magic for me.

u/MrBonez · 1 pointr/running

Look into some claf sleeves, I these and they help.

u/I_SingOnACake · 1 pointr/TwoXChromosomes

I LOVE these ones, they are so comfy and have a good amount of compression.

They're a little pricy for a pair of socks, but worth it IMO. Don't be fooled by the cuteness; they are effective. Nurses often wear them, which is why they come in more fashionable patterns now.

> Also, you can get some Olympic adapters on amazon, that’s what I did

This one by chance? How well do you like yours?
