I felt SO GOOD this week during my runs! I retired an old pair of running shoes, and pulled out another pair from the closet that weren’t as worn. Well… these “old but not too old shoes” did something:
I have a huge blister on the inside of my arch. It formed on Wednesday’s run, and on todays run, it busted open. Fortunately, I was at the gym and I had access to bandages. I put on 3 band aids before I started my run, but about half way through, my blister was pretty painful. Then, I put on a super bandage, and wrapped my foot with neoprene. The blister still hurt a lot, but at least I wasn’t getting blister goo and blood everywhere!
I also had another running “injury” this week- I lost a toenail. Gross, I know. So you may think I have all of my little piggies painted orange, but really I just painted a chunk of skin on one of my toesies.
