Je loopschoenen moeten perfect zitten! Niet te groot, te klein of te smal vooraan; Laat je goed adviseren in de loopwinkel!!
Nieuwe loopschoenen vooraf inlopen; kleine duurloopjes, thuis rondwandelen.
Gebruik synthetische naadloze kousen; die geven het vocht af.
Gevoelige plekken op de voeten afplakken met sporttape, second skin of gebruik een dikke voetcrème.
Wat ik zelf doe..
Vooraleer ik mijn wedstrijdschoenen aantrekt, de voeten nog eens extra afdrogen met een handdoek, wat talkpoeder op de voeten en in de verse kousen strooien.
Zo zijn de voeten perfect droog!
Tijdens de wedstrijd💥🥇
Water die je over je hoofd giet om af te koelen loopt snel tot in je schoenen; extra wrijving…
Compressiekousen houden het water deels vast, de voeten blijven langer droog…
Voel je blaren opkomen?
Ga rustiger, voorzichtiger lopen in scherpe bochten zodat ze niet openscheuren.
Klein blaasje? Niet openprikken, het geneest sneller!
Grote hinderlijke blaren? Steriel openprikken, reinig en dek de wonde af.
Heb jij nog tips?

Recently started running again, strictly treadmill for now...it’s been a while! I’m getting blisters on the insides of my heels. I think the problem is I have wide upper feet, but a narrow heel (if that’s even a thing!) so I’m not sure if my shoes are sliding up and down when I run (not noticing it) or socks are causing friction or what? I do wear specific running socks. I somewhat recall this happening when I used to run a lot and I tried everything, even that special lacing technique to tighten up the heels. I guess I need affordable shoe or other recommendations before I get discouraged 🥺 Thoughts?? #runnerproblems#widefeetproblems#runningblisters

First marathon in the books.
Having never run more than 16 miles, but having a full distance Ironman in 7 months, I needed to know if I can mentally handle running a marathon. The first 16 was just like I had practiced. I stuck to the plan of pacing, nutrition and hydration and all went well until mile 18 when I hit an emotional/mental wall and had to call the wife for a break. 3 min call while I walked helped greatly. This was also the time that I began to have taste bud fatigue. Luckily they had Gu Salted Caramel on course to change up the SiS citrus and CarboRocket grape nutrition. At mile 19 my first of 4 blisters popped...talk about a weird feeling. After the second one popped on the other foot a mile later, I had to change my gait, cadence and form. The last 6-7 miles was not fun. If I had applied anti chafe to my feet i may have had a reputable time. Regardless, this wasn’t about time. It was (1) checking the box on 26 miles, (2) seeing where my emotional/mental wall was, and (3) was my nutrition and hydration plan on point for 26.2 miles. I learned a lot and am thankful for a group of friends (@joel_strickland_fl@ewkenny7059@coursonpartyof5 and many others) that helped encourage and bring this to fruition.
Post race was some time in the recovery boots, followed by a trip to Moe’s!
Was able to PR 40+ minutes with arthritis knees! Officially my last marathon. Thought if I took correct measures, my knee would be fine but boy was I wrong! I’m paying for it now. Lol it was a good run Chicago marathon!! It was a great 2 races (2017, 2018). But it is good bye for me! Ps. Enjoy the reality of marathoning in this photo LMAO! Blisters, knee arthritis but a beautiful medal! 💕 it was worth it!
Ps2: special shoutout to my sisters for coming and supporting me today. Cried so hard for about half a mile because it meant so much. Thank you all for the texts too because every time my knee said stop, y’alls texts said “don’t” - so i didn’t and ended up beating my time from last year by A LOTTT!
Marathons are the true definition or blood, sweat, and tears. I promise y’all that! 💓 #chicagomarathon#running#rungirlrun#marathon#blisters#runningblisters#emotional#familysupport#marathonlife#chicagomarathon2018

Being a Mum who runs can be a balancing act. Juggling childcare, fitting in runs around kids schedules and sometimes runs come before dishwasher changes and putting another load of washing on. It’s most felt in the holidays, especially when all you hear is ‘what are we doing today???’ Their joy has to come before mine...mostly!
Today I had my long run planned and with no clubs booked in and most friends still travelling from their exodus from the Desert for the summer I responded with far too much joy ‘ your going to kids club at @ritzcarltonabudhabi ‘ .
Luckily for me I have @privilee_uae membership and it enables me to use a host of hotels and their facilities in the UAE. My go to at the moment is the Ritz Carlton. They have an excellent Gym and great pool. The spa facilities are rather gorgeous and for families it’s just perfect...and they have a great kids club. The type that caters not just for babies but tweens too. .
Between them they are essentially supporting my marathon training. How lucky am I!
So the kids went to kids club and I went to the gym on the promise of a swim after and ice cream. The ice cream at The Ritz is second to none don’t you know. .
But a long run on a treadmill is like plucking your eyelashes out with tweezers. So I armed myself with a Netflix Episode (cowspiracy if your wondering) and snacks and hydration. See my insta stories. .
Once I reached 7km I took on my snack of a race food bar and by the time I reached 10km I was on fire. I knew I had this and I could tell from the time on my watch that if I kept going I would complete 15km by the time Cowspiracy ended.
Well it ended and I was just over 15km so continued until the magic 16km. Boom!
I made it. I survived. And then I took my trainers off. I’ve got a blister/callous on my big toe, a blister on the sole of my foot pad and one on my little toe. Ouch. .
Apart from that I feel great. I’m hydrating this afternoon and recovering with some stretches and researching what to do about those blisters.
Happy Running Weekend everyone. If you have any blister tips swing them this way. . #runningblisters #lsr #workhardtrainhard
Swipe to see my killer blister from today's impromptu long run - you've been warned 😆😆😆 Saw this gorgeous mini library while we were on a drive today. I love stuff like this. Decided I wanted to see how far it was and if I could run there and back. It turns out it's about 13km. I managed 12km before my right foot blistered and got a bit too ouchy to go on. If it were a race I would have pushed through, but the last km is steep uphill 😅 and I didn't want to rip up my feet too badly before the Bridge to Brisbane. A little on the slow side, lots of traffic lights and I keep forgetting to pause my Garmin, but I'm stoked. This is my longest run ever!!! 😄 Thank you to the owners of this gorgeous little treasure for inspiring me to lace up today. ❤

I’ve been walking a lot on this holiday. I use a different pair of shoes from walking than I do for running and haven’t had a problem...until now.
4km into a walk and approaching a coffee stop I had a little niggle in my heel. I asked the barrister for a plaster and as I took my trainer off it was full of blood. I wasn’t going to go make it back to the car, and another 4km without putting a plaster on it. .
8.5km in total on a coastal walk and this. It’s not painful but it’s rubbing.
What do I do? I’ve never had a blister mid training and I’m due a long run today, which I think I’m going to hold off on as I don’t want to aggravate it. .
Should I hold off running?
Any tips to speed up its recovery or protect it?
