A good run and some weird blisters

This past weekend I didn’t run a race but I did do a 25.5km training run in perfect conditions on Sunday morning. It was a good run although I was extremely tired towards the end. It was one of those days where I could keep going without any problems even though I was dead tired. I think this means it was a good workout.

Back home after my good 25.5km run. Beautiful morning!

One strange thing that did happen this morning is that I got three small blisters on my left foot during the run. The three blisters are in a small group and I think a fourth might have formed if I ran longer. This is strange and it looks like three small blisters formed instead of one bigger one. I haven’t had a blister in this area recently and I think it was maybe my sock that caused it.

Three small blisters…weird…

This week’s training will be all normal with a half marathon on Sunday. I hope you all have a great week of running!

Schedule for the week:

Monday: Rest
Tuesday: 9km
Wednesday: 15.1km
Thursday: 9km
Friday: 12.2km
Saturday: 6.2km
Sunday: 21.1km

Total: 72.6km

I laughed. I am sure only running bloggers post pictures of blisters on line! Sorry about your blisters. I got one on the Outer Banks on the top of my foot and I NEVER get blisters. I just pulled my sock higher. I think it was the sand rubbing! About to go watch the Boston Marathon. Yeah!

I have to make my brain work to convert the ks to miles! ; )

Anyhow, hope the blisters heal up so they don't bother you this coming Sunday. Have a good training week.

Good job on the long run! I really appreciate your weekly schedule. Although the blisters are small you should have to change your sock. Maybe you need to wear a thiner sock.
I look forward for reading your next long run.
