Calluses

Not the greatest subject to talk about in polite company but after today's run and my little discovery of what I suspected was a large blister was in fact a wet callus.

I had a good shower, let my feet dry out naturally and then tonight have given them a good look over. It seems they are in pretty good condition but there are some hardened areas that need to be rubbed down and so got a small piece of P120 sandpaper and had a good rub over.

I put my trail shoes back on and amazingly they feel really comfortable now. The heel is a little worrying but I will keep an eye on it and see how it turns out.

  1. You need a scalpel and some enthusiasm. :) I regularly have a go at my calluses.
