16.05 miles pain of the long distance runner
monday night is brian davies club interval session, i ran down early to get some extra mileage in.
on saturday my shoes started making strange slapping noises , on examination i found that the soles were coming adrift from the uppers, so on my return from my run i binned them.
tonight i was trying out my new shoes which turned out not to be the brightest of ideas, because after 3 miles i could feel a burning sensation in my right heel, by 7 miles the blister felt quite painful, by 10 miles it hurt like hell but i kept on going.
after the club session i decided to run home and not get a lift back, i sort of ran through the pain and out the other side. i ended up with 16 miles, i felt good apart from the nasty blister.
i was pleased with my self, i didn't quit even through the pain was hard to handle
blisters can hurt but not as much as saddle sores like i use to get when i was cycle racing, man talk about blazing saddles ow eeh !!!
