The Punishment For Treadmill Use…

Well, it had to happen sooner or later.  I developed a small blister on the outside of my left foot.  

Not from a long run, not from some hardcore technical terrain or even the roughest road surface imaginable.  Instead I get a blister from running for 5k on a treadmill!!

Time to try out some blister management techniques.

Step 1 – Sterilise a pin.

Step 2 – use pin to drain the blister.

Step 3 – leave it alone.

Now to keep everything crossed and think healing thoughts.   The little spot is no where near as sore as it was before draining the blister and with a bit of luck it’ll be runnable, all be it minimally shod, tomorrow.  

One more day till the weekend  🙂
