GoldToe Support Socks For Work-It Wednesday!! #WorkItWednesday

Compression socks may not be the first thing you think of for a workout. And for a lot of workouts you'd be right. However, I have an ankle that tends to give out during high-impact activities such as running, jumping rope, etc. I've sprained it twice, and now I have to be careful with it. One thing I've found that helps is compression socks or sleeves. I have tried a lot of different brands in the past, but recently I received a couple pairs of the Women's Support Knee-High Socks for review from GoldToe, and they are now my favorite!



The first thing I noticed as I put my GoldToe Support Socks on is that they are a much higher compression than any other brand I've tried. This is a very firm compression, which makes it perfect for wearing during running, racquetball, or any other high-impact sport. There are toe and heel "pockets" to allow normal fit in these areas (unlike some other compression-type socks that just cram your toes together!) but the rest of the sock is contoured to fit just right with the perfect amount of support and pressure-relief.



Another reason I like these GoldToe Support Socks so well is they're a much thinner material than my others. This makes them cooler and thus much more comfortable, especially when you're sweating during a workout!! The socks also stay up very well, even during a 2-mile run. No having to stop and adjust the socks or keep pulling them up.



I would like to point out that even if you don't need compression or support socks for your workouts, these are great for other reasons. They promote healthy circulation in the legs and feet, which makes them perfect for people who are on their feet for extended periods of time, have swelling, leg pain, or varicose veins, or even for someone with diabetes. Whatever your purpose for needing support socks, I haven't found a better pair than these from GoldToe!

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
