Any views on how to run with blisters, and the best socks to prevent?
I did my longest run ever last sunday, about 11.5 miles in 2.25hr, absolutely delighted, my feet were a bit sore, nothing too bad, but when I got home was horrified to see 2 large blisters, (1 3/4 by 1 inch!!)on the arches of my feet just behind the ball. I popped them, soaked in salt water put on hydrocolloid type plasters, tried to run Thursday,in the gym, made it worse, they filled up with fluid, which seemed to get forced into the surrounding skin making bruises.
I have a 10k bank hol w/e and 1/2m 22 Sept. Any advice gratefully accepted!!
