At around mile 5 on Saturday, I felt the stinging that could only be a blister. It is. On the inside of my big toe side foot (no other way to describe where it is…the pad…there is a 1/2 inch long beginning of a black blister. While I’m one part excited that I have a real runner foot (they are ugly, people), I’m not so happy with the thought that I’ve got 5 weeks until the Half Marathon in Sacramento.
We did a 4.6 this morning at 4:45am, VERY slow. Slower than normal…and the blister is starting to talk to me.
What do you do for your blisters? I can’t very well stop training now…do I pop, or not?
PS-Eminem LOSE YOURSELF has to be the best running song ever…
