Rule #1 for avoiding blisters – don’t unlace your shoes! This causes your feet to be able to slide around in your shoes, and no matter what kind of moisture-wicking fabric your socks are made of, blisters will ensue!
Yes, I had major blisters on my feet on Saturday after my 6 mile walk. I could hardly walk, the pain was so bad. Not to sound like a whiner, but it was really terrible. I had two blisters on the ball of my left foot, and a blister on my right big toe, a blister on each side of my right baby toe, and a huge blister on the ball of my right foot.
I did as TNT recommends and covered my blisters with a bandage. I actually bought special bandaids made for blister protection and healing, although I don’t think they did much good.
The blisters lasted from Saturday through Tuesday, and needless to say, I wasn’t able to get in my OYO walks. I could barely walk around my house or my classroom, let alone trying to walk for an hour per day. It’s always something, right?
