It's Tuesday already? Today was a 4 mile run. I actually power walked a nice 2 mile incline/hill, then jogged down it. I might use this more in the next few weeks to do some more power walking up hills. I have been advised I will be doing this at Mountain Masochist.
I did not get any blisters at Mohican on Saturday. However, I had a bunch of shredded skin around my 'slugtoe' and the next toe. So, before the 1/2 marathon, I taped both toes. Then my dilemna was, what to put over it? I wasn't sure if I could use petroleum jelly or A&D ointment-it seemed to me these would work the tape loose. So this time I used BlisterShield in my socks and no jelly/ointment. Now, this was on a totally flat course, and my gaiters kept out all the small pebbles even. But I did not end up with any blisters.
So my question is, if you tape, can you still use a lubricant ointment/gel on your feet in the same area?
