C-Sock is an excellent compression sports sock, develped by my friend Professor Henning Langburg from the Institute of Sports Medicine Copenhagen, Denmark. Henning asked me to test out the C-Sock with my family hiking in Hardangervidda, Norway´s national park. It´s a beautiful area up in the mountains about 1100m above sea level, with endless wilderness and plenty of paths to walk it´s the perfect place to take a cabin trip..
After tearing my calf muscle (medial gastrocnemius) a few months ago, I´ve been using the C – Sock to help support my leg. The best effect of the C-Sock is the increased blood flow to the muscles and the achilles tendon when exercising, this gave me confidence in my leg and made it great for the outdoors. The breathable fabric of the C-Sock meant that my legs and feet stayed dry and warm even when I stopped to rest. The Fabric is made by X-Static and has silver fibers woven in to it aid heat transfer and comfort. The feel and fit of the C-Sock is very comfortable and can be worn all day. It is also cool because the X-Static fabric is also used by the air force and the England football team in their socks!
My mum at 66 yrs also found the C-Sock very comfortable and effective while walking with me.
I highly recommend buying some of these C-Socks for use in any activity from walking to high jumping. Its easily available in scandinavia through www.Supersole.dk where Henning works. For all other countries contact firstname.lastname@example.org
My Garmin 305 did me proud again as I used it to track our route and take my heart rate. We started at the top of the Krossobanen lift near Rjukan. We walked 4.7 km, climbed 484m and descended 499m with and average rate of climb of 296.7 m/hr over the 1 hour 37 minute trip. We reached a total altitude of 1120m. I had an average heart rate of 71 bpm with a maximum of 115 bpm and minimum of 48 bpm.
