If you’re squemish, you probably shouldn’t read this post.
One week since the Brighton Half Marathon. My legs are recovered, I’m feeling smug. There’s only one problem – My feet are Fuct.
I mean seriously
*WARNING – Grossness Alert*
I got properly fitted for running shoes on that running machine where they take a video of your feet and you watch it back with popcorn AND I got fancy running socks AND I even wore preventative blister plasters before I ran but as you can see, that didn’t work.
Wanna see another one
This is a direct quotation from one of the people I live with “Please don’t make me look at them again”
I’ve been advised a hot bath with Epsom salts is the way forward, but does anyone else have any top tips for dealing with blisters? It’s been a week now, they won’t go away and they hurt!!
In other news, I’ve had a few requests to keep this blog going even though the half marathon is finished and I’m only too happy to oblige! I’ve realised that booking into organised stuff is the best way to keep me focussed and keep this fitness malarky going. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want to turn into a Keeno (Click here to discover why I NEVER want to be a Keeno) but I’m feeling well, have had a blast over the past few months, so it would be silly not to keep it going. So, over the next few months, I have booked myself into
The Sport Relief Mile in March
The Bupa London 10,000 in May
The Great North Swim in June
The London 10k in July
The Great North Run in September which is the worlds BIGGEST Half Marathon (super excited about that one)
It’s gonna be great. I’m gonna get me so much free stuff!!
So until next time, Peace Out – next time I’ll try not to write something that’ll make you vom.
