I spent most of my pregnancy sweating in the heat of the summer and now that I’m ready to be outside and active again, it’s winter. Well, Vancouver winter anyway … which means rain, and lots of it! This normally wouldn’t deter me but I doubt it’s recommended to spend hours in the cold and rain with a newborn.
The Stunt Puppy “Stunt Runner” leash is the second hands-free leash I’ve owned, and is far superior to the first one I tried. The major difference between it and many others is that the main leash part is stretchy (stretches from 35 to 51 inches) to absorb pulling from your dog. This is great for controlling my sweet but unruly 70 lb. chocolate lab. Other features include:
- Black metal D-Ring on waist belt slides to preferred running position
- Waist belt adjusts 28”-49”, custom sizing available
- Simple, light weight design will not slow you down
If you are looking into trying compression, you have likely looked at a wall of products and wondered whether you should get socks or sleeves. There are pros and cons of both and it is important to do your research and determine what is best for you.
I’ve now tested both the socks and sleeves made by Legend Compression Wear. You can read my previous post for my thoughts on their socks. But basically, I like their products because they are “right not tight,” meaning that the level of compression is comfortable, not painfully restricting like some brands I’ve worn.
If you’re a runner or an athlete, chances are you’ve tried pain relief gels like Icy Cold or Tiger Balm before. I have personally tried a couple brands previously for muscle soreness during softball tournaments and more recently for running recovery. Pro tip: don’t apply to areas that are sunburned.
