Hmmm… my blacks never quite look black.
I wanted to get out for a run and try them right away… but life got in my way... work, weather… and actually, today I was supposed to do a strength workout, but decided to put that off till tomorrow because the sun was shining and the temps were mild and I couldn't miss the opportunity for a run. During our wild Westcoast Winters, rain can happen at any time.
I put on the new Performance Compression Running Tights and my Performance Active Fit Long Sleeved Mock Neck Shirt… and I sorta felt like a sleek Catwoman in this stylish all-black suit. And then I topped it with my awesome Performance Active Wear Jacket… all the same styling and ergonomic stitching and played at some posing while The Captain snapped these pics…. ignore the nice hair, I was supposed to be getting ready to go running!
Unfortunately,by the time I got ready to head out for my run, it had started to rain, so I opted not to wear the jacket in favor of one that sheds water a bit better…. it was supposed to be a 5km run but got shortened to 3km… but it great to get out anyway.
It turned out to be a light shower and only lasted about 15 minutes, so we were almost completely dry by the time we got in and got our shoes off… some dry shirts and a few glasses of water and some stretching. A couple of hours later (no I have not had my shower yet) I am still wearing these comfy tights, and I honestly don’t want to take them off!
I have loved my Tommie Copper compression garments since I first discovered their fabulous copper-infused fabric. But these tights are the softest fabric you can imagine…. a combination of copper and zinc that apparently offers permanent anti-odor technology inside and out by inhibiting the growth of odor-causing microbes. How great is that? For those of you who have complained about stinky workout gear, this fabric could the answer! Zinc also offers UPF 50+ protection from the sun’s UV rays.
These particular tights are part of a newer line of AGILITY apparel offered by Tommie Copper… garments designed for women to allow full range of motion while delivering superior performance and comfort. These running tights have an inner drawstring at the front of the waist so they can be snugged up tighter and they have a handy little pocket on the right side, just below the hip… for gels or keys, or coins, your Starbuck's card, or even a MP3 player.
I can tell you from experience they are also stylish and cute. I get so many compliments on my TC garments everywhere I go. I really do live in them.
Check out the Tommie Copper web site for more information. And do have a look at their Facebook page as well… they have giveaways and contests going quite often.
And one more thing… they did not ask me to write this post… I just really love this brand, these garments, and enjoy working with the different marketing reps I have encountered over the years. Win win.
Are you a compression gear fan? Have you tried Tommie Copper garments yet?
