Recent Happenings

Lots of stuff going on these days. I ran 50+ miles last 2-3 weeks so I kept pretty busy.

Lots of Running
I have been running 6 days a week. I have been logging in some good miles. It has been tough. I've run lots of miles before...but only 3-4 days a week worth. My body aches, my legs are screaming, blisters on my feet are getting better. I have developed new aches and pains. YUCK.

Shoe Battle
I bought a new pair of shoes recently. Two mistakes I made. First I wore my new shoes (Saucony Stabil CS) with cotton socks...for an hour run on the treadmill. This started the blisters. I ran 2 more times with better socks, and the blisters got worse. I wore them 3 times and gave up. I took them back to the running store. I switched back to the Mizuno Alchemy's. I got the updated version and the blister issue has got better.

I tried everything to help these blisters. I've tried Foot Glide, Vaseline, Duck Tape, Foot Powder, and Aquaphor. Aquaphor has helped the best so far.

No Blog Entries
Shame on me for not posting anything for nearly a month. I am not sure what happened, but I never seemed to find the time to sit down and write...?

Injury Report
Everything seems to be fine. My right hip has improved tremendously. I have a few aches and pains in the legs and other areas, but nothing too serious. I try not to worry too much about this stuff right now.

more to come...

Sucks about the blisters but glad the hip is better. Trigger point will help it alot.
