Remember how I got all sorts of wonderful blisters on my long run this weekend because I’m a dumbass who wore new and thin socks? Well, I had to do a short run last night (3 miles) and all of the blisters popped in the process and today? My feet hurt so bad I may be crying as I type this.
Of course, there are popped blisters on both feet, so I can’t even limp properly. I have to favor different parts of each foot to avoid smooshing the sensitive broken blisters. This makes my walk look about as far from graceful and feminine as possible.
My point though, is I’m wondering what I should be doing with these blisters to help them heal by race-day on Saturday. Or what should I have done? MrZ was all about me popping them on Saturday after the run, but I couldn’t bring myself to do that. Was he right? Would I have been better off popping them then? And now that they’re popped – is there anything I should do to speed up healing? Besides amputating my feet at the ankles?
And let’s not discuss the fact that I’m wearing WHITE running socks with my tan suede Birkenstock clogs. WHITE SOCKS WITH CLOGS. I know…I know…it’s like the fashion equivalent of using the word “ain’t” – something everyone knows is wrong. But my running socks are just so soft! And my Birkenstocks are so comfy! Please allow me this one egregious fashion error for today while my poor piggies heal. Thanks.
