B is for blister. B is for blood. Two B's are for blood blisters of which I have two. A matched set!! One for each foot.
I got my blood blisters from yesterday's beach run. It was our first beach run of Summer (even though it's still technically Spring) and the weather was glorious. I had decided to just run on the hard sand for the first run just to let my legs get used to sand running again. What I hadn't accounted for was the effect of the hard sand on my baby-soft soles.
We ran for about 4 k up the beach then turned around and ran back and my feet were already hurting by the turn-around point. But the only way to get back was to run so I just had to ignore what my feet were saying. And when I got back I saw these on my feet -
So this week has been a week of suffering (only a little) for my sport. I have a bruised toe-nail, a scabbed up elbow and two blood blisters (now lanced and drained). Who'd have thought running was so dangerous?!!
