EXTREME.... walking?

I decided to hit the trail head again today. I'm really rather proud of myself for this. I was all excited to go and managed to maintain that excitement all throughout the hot part of the day. Walking the trail in this weather means waiting until the sun is getting ready to set. Between 6:00 and 6:30 is the earliest I would try and go out there.

Well I had intended to run today. However, the left side of my face once again feels all funk-da-fied and I can't breathe out of my left nostril. So no running for me right now. Seriously, I was huffing and puffing like the undead already, running might just have finished me off.

Since I was not doing my run, I decided to go ahead and walk the 5k. I've done this before. What the heck was my issue today!? It was a great workout certainly, but I somehow broke myself. I have a MASSIVE blister on the ball of my right foot, and certain other parts I wont mention here got chafed like CRAZY. I mean it was hot out and all, but what in the world...?

I am proud of going and walking. I mean, I had to push through even if I didn't want too... being miles away from the car will do that to you. But dang... oww!

Do you need me to send you the body glide? It's so worth it.

Does it work on the bottom of feet? I really don't understand how I got such a massive blister.

they have one designed for feet.

As for your blister -- it could be that your shoes are the wrong side or your sneakers/socks don't have proper ventilation.

Ah I see! Well I know it isn't the shoes. They are my running shoes and have been fine up until that day. I was wearing thicker socks that normal. Maybe that was it.

I need to get some of this. I just can't swing it right now. Silly unemployment! It's on the list of must have items!
