Recovery Boots update: Still diggin' 'em


About 18 months ago, I wrote a review of the Recovery Pump system. I know it's the time in the year when people's volumes are ramping up toward Ironman and other big adventures, so I thought it worth saying once more that I think these things are great, and I continue to use mine constantly.  

I'm at the point in the year when I'm trying to balance a lot of things: getting my running legs back after surgery, going on increasingly ultracycling adventures, and trying to hold it all together.  As a result, I'm spending a lot of time with my feet up in the boots, napping, reading a book, or watching a movie.  I've noticed that I'm not alone in finding them addictive: the system is spreading rapidly among those who try it.  For example, the newly opened Athlete Studio in Dupont Circle has a system that local athletes are using with great success after events.

One thing that's changed since I published my initial review is that the system no longer requires a prescription.  

If you're thinking of getting one for yourself, you can save a bit of money, get free shipping, and snag a couple of free extras by using code A11018 or using the link on the right side of this blog.

Happy training!
