The dreaded blister…
Bet you thought i would post a picture of an actual blister! Well, i thought about it briefly, even looked at some pictures. All i can say is i wouldn’t want to see that on anyone’s blog!!!
A blister or bulla is a defense mechanism of the human body. When the outer (epidermis) layer of the skin separates from the fibre layer (dermis), a pool of lymph and other bodily fluids collect between these layers while the skin re-grows from underneath.
So, i have a blister or bulla on the bottom of my left foot. I felt it smoldering the second day of my running comeback! It’s not like i ran a marathon or is it? I wonder what would happen if indeed i did run a marathon?
I am having a bit of a hard time with something. I so very much want to run everyday but….my body is rebelling. My back, my blisters, my quads, i could go on and on!
Each day brings new challenges, new thoughts, new emotions. It’s just that i want things to happen fast! I’m impatient. What would Sue say now?
The blister is just part of my running story. The other parts fit together like a jigsaw puzzle. The kind of puzzle with jagged edges not smooth. I am looking forward to completing the puzzle!
