Well, Lillie and I have been running. We are slow and steady. I load Lill into her car seat and then pop her in the BOB Stroller. A lifesaver, makes running so much easier. I load my tunes (only use one headphone, so I can hear) and I load my C25K. Away we go.
I have been struggling with shoe/sock issues for quite awhile. Actually since last year when I got new shoes. So, my right sock kept slipping down into my shoe.(Remember walking last summer Janet?) I tried different socks, same problem. It wasn't such a big deal. When I began walking after pregnancy, both socks began slipping. Annoying. Then I began running and both socks slipping and blisters on both heels.
I tried bandaids, no go.
I tried new socks, no go.
I tried a heel pad, nope
I tried moleskin, no go.
The blisters were getting worse and more painful. I *knew* the problem was shoes. I just hated to buy new shoes. But I did it yesterday, and they should be delivered tomorrow. I am giving my heels until Friday to heal up a bit.
So, the moral of this story is:
Just because you get a pair of $200 dollar shoes for $30 bucks. If they aren't your normal brand, be prepared for issues. Just because they are cheap doesn't mean that they will work for you! I should have bought them and donated them.
I am back to Mizzuno's and I can't wait! Training for half marathon Oct 2013 back in business!
I purposely didn't mention the brand of shoes caused blisters because it is a very good brand and works well for some people, just not me.
