War Wounds: the title of this blog, guess I should hit them, after the run I did an ice bath to ache my tired, sore and stiff legs. It was pretty warm weather so it actually felt pretty good, well except the first 3 minutes in the tub that stung a bit. After I had a few left over injuries, the first being my feet. I never felt this pain before but for the first 30 minutes after the run/bath it hurt to walk. The balls of my feet just ached and stung with every step. But by the time lunch was over (went to Red Lob right after) I felt fine again. Matty said he's had this problem too so I know it’s not my Nike Frees because he’s got cushiony Mizunos. But the second wound was my shorts chafed again but worse (I did forget the body glide again) I have this mole that is right above my crack and it chafed so bad that it bleed and for a days after too because it was so sensitive to my jeans and such, total suckage!
That would be scratching, redness-chafing and scabbing. My ipod is kind of falling apart (gift idea a new ipod 8 gig or more) and has been scratching the shit outta my leg and boy did it do a number on Sunday. And it hurts! So I finally got on Amazon and ordered a new belt clip. For some reason you can't find them in the stores easily anymore, it’s all crappy arm bands. I got it yesterday after my run of course so it will have it inaugural run today.
Do you have any odd, war wounds from your run? Do tell!
PS: I also got sunburn on Sunday too!
