I was finally able to run again today. My blister site was dried out, but now the skin was stiff. I feared that it would crack if I moved it too much. But my foot and running were the last thing on my mind. I applied a piece of the Neosporin scar removal that was left over from my fall in December 2005. Honestly, I don’t care about scarring on my foot. Who’s going to see it? But I did remember that the stuff made my skin nice and soft.
It worked, by noon I was able to hit the sidewalk again. I let my mind wander as I ran. I brought myPod along today so that I could forget that I was “training” and use my running to help me process the stress. It was stress that led me to calling in sick today.
During my run, I let my thoughts go back to last night.
