Today is an unplanned rest day. After yesterdays run, my toe had been bugging me. When I took off my sock, I saw a huge blister and I popped it (sorry, TMI). Never mind the crappy paint job, but here's the blister after it was popped.
I'm taking the night to let it air dry and it should be ok for a small 6 miler tomorrow, hopefully. It hurt a little while at work (and in normal shows), so I can't imagine the pain while running or spinning tonight.
My feet hadn't had any blisters in a few weeks, but this one appeared.
My legs feel great, so I'm happy about that. The rest of my body could have handled the run today, but I'm listening to my feet. I finally don't feel guilty about taking 1 day off. I run 5 days a week, my body needs an extra day here and there.
Someone asked me how I liked the GU (from last night). I liked the taste (orange vanilla), but the texture is going to take some getting use to. I don't like custard type of sweets or anything like that, and this is what it reminded me of. It seemed to help pick me up when I started to drag and I'm glad I took it. I got some recommendations to take it if I'm running longer than 1 hour. I'm glad I did.
