Tonight I did my 2.5 miles, I was staying loose, hanging tough, feeling good. Like I could go all the way to 5k even though I wasn't planning to go that far and at a faster pace than usual. Then around mile 1.75 I started feeling chafing in my left arch. Since I was running on the treadmill and was too stupid, lazy, etc to stop and adjust my shoe, I got a nice blister right on my arch.
I run with custom made orthotics and I think the one in my left shoe slipped forward, not sure what happened, same shoes and socks I've had for a year, same orthotics I've had for like 12 years. So I called my friend Kristen who is the best runner I know for advice. I think I'm going to stick to my training plan but hunt down some Spyroflex at REI before my next run scheduled on Friday. Hopefully they have some, last time I went, they were out and I had to special order it from some backpacking shop in effing Utah.
So in case you were wondering what's blasting in my headphones while I rip my feet to shreds, here's my recent play list:
Major Tom-Shiny Toy Guns
Don't Stop Believing-Glee Soundtrack
Carry Out-Timbaland and Justin Timberlake
Evacuate the Dancefloor-Cascadia
Do You Remember-Jack Johnson
Try it out, I think you'll enjoy it!
