Bloody Achilles

Warning...picture of my hurt achilles blood and all

After splitting the callous on Sunday's run I thought I would be fine with a sticky plaster (Band Aid) to protect my achilles which is fine if the thing stays stuck to the wound.

I went out for a pacey 10km tonight and was happily plodding around until I look at my foot afterwards...eeeeeewwwww.

It looks worse than it really is so will get it all washed off and properly taped in a minute


  1. As long as it doesn’t hurt too much and you can keep it covered running should be fine. It certainly looks painful. Take care!

  2. Thanks Johann, when I got into the bath last night it was basically a skin rub and so I have clean it up and taped it up for the day. I walked 3 miles in normal shoes and all is OK.
    I have left it uncovered for the evening to dry out but am a little worried about Saturdays 50+km night run.
