Had a lovely run this morning, with a few obstacles to contend, but all was going well until some sneaky gremlin decide to ever so slightly loosen my laces. Although my socks weren't exactly slipping down I became a aware of an faintly uncomfortable feeling on my feet which grew in intensity, and then I realised my socks were rubbing and I was developing a blister or two. Wanting carry on to 10k as I'm getting ready for my Race for Life 10k in 2 and a 1/2 weeks, I tried to tighten my laces and ran on. I've now got an interesting blister on the instep of both feet.
These are the first blisters I've had since taking the C25K challenge last July, and I don't really know what to do with them. I don't want to have more than one rest day before my next run, as I need to keep on schedule with my training. If anyone has any hints or tips for coping with them, or making them reduce, please let me know.
My daughter's response, when I took my shoes off and moaned was, "Well you're a professional runner now Mum!" I'd rather be a blister free amateur I think.
