So last night my park run was just wonderful minus two things, but I’ll get to those after I talk about how much I love running at this park. I wore my long leggings from Target, which I love and my new Nike long sleeve shirt that I got from Mr. R’s mom. I have found that running in appropriate clothes makes running in the cold a little more bearable. Anyways, the run was going great, I was cruising and I just love running there. It seriously seems like I was only running for ten minutes and I was done.
So onto the bad. I’m pretty sure my Nike+ is dead. AGAIN. It said, activity stopped, which has happened before, and I know there is no reviving the +, so tonight I’m going to give it one more try at the gym and hopefully it springs back to life somehow, or else it’s yet ANOTHER Nike+ for me. I would be angry if I didn’t have it for the race this weekend, so I’ll have to pick one up ASAP. Anyways, I put in 5 miles, but the Nike+ died at, yup, you heard me 4.91 miles. Seriously little plus. Seriously!? You couldn’t hang on for another .08 miles? Oh well, tonight I am hoping for a revival.
Then, I sometimes get bloody socks because I get little cuts in between my toes when I run. This is incredibly weird, I know, and for some reason, I knew I was going to have a bloody sock yesterday after I ran. I get back to Mr. R’s, and after dinner I was getting ready to get in the shower and I take off my shoe. I realize it is the WORST bloody sock EVER! Mr. R said,” you are a freak” and then I look down at my shoe. I BLED THROUGH MY BRAND NEW SHOES! This has NEVER happened to me before, and of course, the second run I run in them, there is blood on them now. Great, thanks a lot. So I took a picture. I am so sad.
**Update! So yes, I’ve seen all your concern for my toes. I’ve been wearing the same socks since high school, so I don’t think that’s neccesarily the problem. I also have had bloody toes since as long as I can remember and it’s not from a blisters just weird little cuts that I get. I sometimes get them on a 2 mile run, and not on a 13 mile run and vice versa. Wierd, I know! I’ve gotten my shoes professionally fitted, and asked people about this and they have said put on a bandaid, (which isn’t happening) or put on some second skin, which is what I’m going to try tonight at the gym. Any other good tips? I’m all ears!**
