R Foot, Blisters

2008-06-22 – 2008-06-25

Grade: 2

Massive blister developed on Right foot at about 6km into the Classic Distance race. I lost about 10% of running speed over all and about 25% on the hills as a result. It means I could only claim about 2 minutes on my overall time as lost due to blister. It would not have affected my result. I lost 3 minutes due to a stupid route choice.

I may have to take my inners back to the Podiatrist to shave off a little bump irritating the foot on that particular spot. I notice the previous pair were much thinner int his area, which I think he did in order to make it a bit more flexible so that there is support but also movement to avoid the blistering. I'll prbably run longer events in my old Orthotics and where the new ones daily to hoepfully correct my geometry in time.
