More Miles, More Blisters

This morning I set out for my longest run to date. It was good. It wasn't great because I had garmin troubles again ( I solved them mid-run), my tummy didn't like the Gatorade on the course, and I got a new blister and then I got a blister on (or under) the first blister. The great: I tried out my new belt. I love how much I can fit in it and yet it never moves.

I put some pictures below but since I'm doing this post from my phone I cannot write between the pictures or it gets deleted ( who knows why).

All in all:
16.21 miles
Less than 3 hrs total (breaks included)
10:50/mile ave (breaks included)
I'm happy with the run and really looking forward to "only" 12 miles next weekend.

Hey Susi, Those blister look awful. My sister had a huge blister on the side of her heel to. I have some wright socks and love them. THey are blister free socks. You might give them a try. My sis is getting here blister healed, then she is going to try the wright socks. I will let you know how it works for her. Take care of your feet. What an awesome run. Way to go girl

That is exactly where I get a blister on a lot of my long runs. Same foot even =( So sorry!

Great job getting it done in spite of some not great things getting in the way!

Good job on the long run, despite the blisters! I work with a woman who constantly gets blisters and she has tried EVERYTHING! One thing I have not had many of.

Does bodyglide help that? Have your tried putting a bandaid there before the run?

I hope that heals up soon!

Great job on the run - but too bad about the blisters - YIKES!

Great run! You'll have to keep us posted on if you find something that helps with the blisters...they plague me, as well.

Those are some serious blisters! Ouch! I usually lance mine, put on the neosporin and let em breathe. Hope they stop plaguing you!
