Non-Long Run Day

Usually, I have my long run on Tuesdays. There are a couple of reasons why I chose not to do that today. The biggest reason is because I have 2 blisters, one of each heel (from hiking). The other reason is that I am running 13 miles on the trail on Saturday. I took yesterday off, and I ran 6 miles today. I will continue running 6 miles every day this week, until my long run on Saturday. What type of vitamins do you take? These are mine. I take these every day. At the end of 2010, I had a huge bruise on my foot and it wasn't healing. I ended up calling my dr. and he said that if I'm taking any iron pills, it will take longer for the bruise to heal. I had no idea. I stopped taking them and just a few days later, I could see the huge difference. The bruise was so bad, it hurt to run or anything (it was on the bottom of my foot). I needed the bruise to heal, so I could run again. It did and later, I injured my knee, fun times!


  1. I didn't know that about taking iron pills! I just take multi-vitamin and calcium chews, used to take iron but my stomach didn't really appreciate that so I'm trying to get more from my foods.
    Glad there is a fellow Tuesday long-runner! :)

  2. Hope those blisters get better soon! i take a multi, vit D ( I was defficient), calcim and b6 but to be honest on most days I forget to take them...

  3. I didn't know that iron supplements could affect how long it takes for a bruise to heal!

    I take Vitamin C, calcium/magnesium and a multi.

  4. I only take a multivitamin, One-A-Day Pro Edge.

  5. I take SOOO many pills it is crazy.


    Hope those bilsters heal soon!
