Over the last couple days I have realized that it is dang near impossible to have a good run if your feet hurt. My feet are in pretty rough shape right now because of 3 factors:
1.) I wore new shoes for the Vancouver race and acquired some blisters along with my PR.
2.) I tried to give myself an at home pedicure and went overboard with the callus scraper. Blood everywhere!
There’s a reason they have professionals for this.
3.) I stepped on a piece of broken glass and cut my other foot. Boo.
But, in true runner form, I bandaged up and ran 6 miles on Saturday and 4 miles today. Ouch! Lesson learned…take care of your feet!
