Kimogen's Journal, 11 September 2008

More than a bit sore today - terrible blisters that I've had for about a week and a half now - seem to be getting worse...

Did my 5k 'Fun Run' on Sunday - first run in the great outdoors - was hard work, but seemed to go much faster than the 5k in the gym. Think I will be doing that again - hopefully to the point that I will be able to do at least one run each Sunday - or thereabouts. Am going to try to do my house to my Dad's this Sunday.

Haven't been terribly good this week. I think that the worst thing I did was treat myself on Sunday with a chinese takeaway. Then I was ravenous and food-mad all day Monday. I got back on it yesterday, however did munch down the remnants of the Monday night binge before I went to the gym last night.

But the 5k was a bit easier, actually ran 2 MILES without stopping - only walked the equivalent of about 3 laps - which means I ran 11 laps! I'm pleased, sore but pleased. When I started this from scratch, I never thought I was going to be able to do it. Once I get to 5k, I'll go a bit faster. Once I can maintain the speed, I'll increase the distance! All good. I'm wishing that the progress was faster, but I'm going to have to increase what I eat and what I do to be able to get there! Maybe have to start thinking about going early in the morning...uh oh...

I've also been dealing with blisters lately, primarily on my toes. I find that wrapping the sensitive areas in moleskin, and switching away from cotton socks is really helping since they tend to retain moisture. I also changed the way I lace my shoes to reduce friction on the top of my foot. So many little things to consider...never think about it until we have to. Please let me know what you find that helps, I appreciate all the input I can get :)
