Best idea EVER.
Friday, March 12, 2010
So, the other day, I had the best idea ever. I decided that would wear my brand-new, untried shoes out to the supermarket. (Feel the power of my sarcasm!)
Now, I was only walking around for 15 minutes, and already I could feel that the backs of the heels were cutting into MY heels.
When I got home, not only had I gotten two blisters in the folds of BOTH my heels, but they had already broken, and were open, and weeping.
So what I did, was I put some Sudocrem on them, put sticking plasters over them both, and went to bed. They were fine on Wednesday, when I went to the gym, but when I took the plasters off on Wednesday night and went in a shower, they hurt to high heavens.
I left the plasters off, and went to my bed.
Yesterday, I went to the swimming pool, and it didn't hurt at all, I thought, "AWESOME." So I didn't put any more plasters on last night, either.
Today, when I woke up, I started climbing down the stairs, and the SECOND that I stretched my right leg down to the next step, it was AGONY. The scab split in two, started bleeding like nobody's business, and it was just. Yes, agony is a good word.
So I won't be going to the gym today, to try and give them a bit more time to heal. I'm having to walk downstairs backwards and upstairs one step at a time, leading with my left foot and putting both feet on each stair.
It's a pain in the butt, but hopefully it'll all help in the end. I have this intro to SpinFit class on Sunday that I really don't wanna miss!
