Well, well. Forgive my creative streak. I have a vacation.

Soooo today it was another standard loop of only 8.5 k but I had just been sick for a week. So I plodded along veeeeery slowly and took about an hour. Rats. My race is in 3 weeks and I haven't been able to do the WORK!

My new insoles feel less weird already but I noted a patch where the edge is noticeable so I might get a blister come the longer runs. What do do, what to do.... ?

All I can say is &^%$#^&* !! I ran 3 times while I was visiting my family. That was good. The bad part is that I ran I shoes that I knew should be retired. And I ran without my insoles. Now I have plantar faciitis. $#@$%^! I went right out and bought some insoles and new shoes. But I'm down for at least a week, probably 2, if I'm lucky. feh

Well, I'm trying to get back to running again. Slowly. Going from running 80 miles a month to not running at all... well my body fat is at 28%. HORRIBLE for an athlete.

So far I've only been doing short treadmill runs. Nothing too crazy.

Hopefully I'll be back at it soon. I'm also looking into racewalking, so I'm going to see if that will be a good alternative to running.

I ran two miles this morning. Hadn't had much chance to run over the Thanksgiving holiday except for a two-miler on Friday. Hmm, that was last week -- oh, well. We were at my parents' house which is at a 6500 ft. elevation in New Mexico. Not as much air there as I'm used to at our low 1250 ft. at home so it was a slow run, but it still felt good.

Now to keep it up as the days get shorter --

Ran 6 miles Sunday, but since then I have been sidelined a very sore left hamstring caused by 3 hours of shoveling road base immediately after the run. Plus now I'm sick.

Three for me this morning, first run in 11 days.

5.41 today. It was about 42 F and I'd gone more than 2 miles before my fingers stopped hurting from the cold, and my delts never did get warm over my bad shoulder, but other than that it felt good

For years I got blisters on my arches from any orthotics I tried. I used all kinds of tapes and bandages with varying degrees of protection, but I could never guarantee I wasn't going to come home with a 2" x 1" blister on my arch. I don't know why I never believed lubes would work on my feet, but this fall I discovered Blister Block and I haven't had a problem since.

I don't know how well it would hold up over long runs, but after 6 miles it doesn't feel like it's starting to wear off at all.
