I am lucky enough to have another day off today. Hurray for President’s Day. Although BoBo has baseball practice, the boys are out of school all day as well.
If this wasn’t enough to make for a nice and easy week, it is also a step-back week. So Coach was nice enough to let me run on a day that I would normally be resting. The rest of my running week consists of a run every other day. It should help me manage my work at the office.
Surprising as it is, my legs aren’t the least bit sore today. The blister on my left foot was a concern though. I drained the clear fluid from it and applied some blister blocker to the spot.
The next task was to MacGyver my shoe set up – AGAIN. I pealed what remained of my metatarsal pads from my orthotics, traced them, and then cut two-layers of moleskin foam to make a replacement. I attached them to the most neutral insole that I own.
After this I was off with YaYa riding his bike along side of me. We made our way to the local high school track. I ran 6 laps and YaYa ran every other lap along side of me. He took this picture of me during his rest period (finger cropped out).
I made it through most of the run before I could feel the blister filling back up with fluid. We managed to get home before the discomfort got to be too much.
