This past Sunday I ran 4 miles and when it was all said and done I had a small little blister on my foot. Not such a big deal; threw on some ointment and went about my week. Then I ran 4 miles yesterday and when I pulled off my sock that small little blister was now a very angry (much bigger) blister. It doesn’t help that it is located on the bottom side of my foot and that I have to wear heels to work. OMG- it is painful killing me!!!
So Internet blogger friends…I need advice- how do you deal with blisters? Do you wear certain socks? Have any tried and true methods of avoiding blisters? Currently I wear Nike socks and Brooks Adrenaline shoes. When I was a skater I would get blisters all the time, but I had special pads to wear in my skates that would help ward them off or alleviate them when I did have them. Is there anything like this in the running world??
A few other random notes:
-I have Yoga tonight and I am really looking foward to it. Each time I go I get a little better and make a little less of a fool of myself 🙂 Plus, with my busy schedule, the relaxation time is much needed.
-Spring break starts in 1.5 days! I am out of my mind excited. Even if most of my time will be spent writing three papers, I will still be able to sleep in a few days, get caught up on housework and have no problem getting my workouts in.
That’s all for now…hope everyone is enjoying their hump-day 🙂
