Yesterday I was planning on going to Body Pump after work, pulling a double workout. Unfortunately, it was full and if you weren’t on the list, you couldn’t get a pass, and you couldn’t participate. Fortunately, the gym is conveniently located at the mall. So because I couldn’t work out, I went and dropped some mad buck$$$ at Nordstrom. I unremorsefully purchased a new wallet, new purse, new iPhone case, and tried on some new running shoes. I’ve been wanting to check out Brooks Pureflow’s, but the size 8 was almost too tight and the size 8.5 were just too big. Plus, when I looked down, I just felt like I had kangaroo feet. I’m not dissing anyone out there with Brooks. I liked yours so I thought I would like them for me. I think I’ll probably just been sticking with Nikes.
Since my last race I’ve been wanting to buy some new shoes. Completing and training for a new race is always a good excuse to buy new shoes. However, I’ve been wanting to get properly fitted at Road Runner Sports, but I just haven’t had the time. So I’ve been wearing an old pair of Nike Lunar Eclipse (like the one’s I re-bought and returned) because I figured they’re in ok shape since I never ran a race in them. However, Saturday, towards the end of my 8 mile run, I started to feel a burn on the inner arch of my right foot. Low and behold, a little blister, probably the size of my pinky-tip. Sunday I just decided to run (10 miles) right on it, assuming it would just pop. This didn’t happen, and it just got a little bit bigger. Now, after running on it 6 miles yesterday and 4 miles this morning, IT IS HUGE.

It takes 3 bandaids to cover it up. I am literally walking on the side of my foot. Pretty soon I’m going to need a crutch! I feel like it’s slowly going to keep growing and take over my entire body. I tried sticking it with a needle, but it’s just a flaccid mass (cute, huh?). SPOILER: cover your eyes.
Post work I ran 3 more miles that were the most difficult. I was over working my left leg, while supinating my right foot. Overall, I’ve just been trying to increase my mileage this week, but it has just come to bite me in the butt. Or maybe
the loss of my right foot this is just a strong message: I NEED NEW SHOES 😉
