Blister does not stop training!

Thankfully my burn/blister has started to heal and although it has some way to go before it is beck to normal, it’s thankfully in a spot that can be protected by a plaster.

I tested this theory commuting yesterday and was happy enough that I could run again.

It’s another hot one here so I got up with Richard, had a light breakfast and did some chores before heading out.

Even at this time of the morning it is already warm though and although there is a welcome breeze it does not disguise the humidity in the air.

Today’s weather was the perfect test for my new Gore Running cap which I bought to replace my old Nike one.  This has a decent integral sweat band under the cap which stops sweat getting into your eyes.  I was so hot I did have sweat running off my glasses and down the side of my face but unlike the last run I was able to run and see where I was going as the cap did a good job of keeping my forehead clear.

Despite the blister, the heat and the humidity I enjoyed todays run and the FARTLEK session once again made it feel like the kilometres had passed by very quickly.

I am happy I got this run completed as I wasn’t sure how much time I would have this weekend – if I am lucky (and have the energy), I may do the same tomorrow.

Have a great weekend!
