One-third short...


Well, physically I could have done it; my left foot, on the other hand, decided to cut me short today and I only got in 10 miles. I took a short break at 5 miles, thinking the next one would be at 10, but the feeling of a hot spot convinced me to go ahead and stop for lunch, after which I peeked at the offending foot.

More damned blisters. They're small, and I'm determined to keep them small, so I slapped some Moleskin on and headed home. This close to October, I figure not risking bigger and uglier blisters in more important than 5 miles that I have no doubt I can do.

Truly, I don't doubt it. and on the walk itself I'll Moleskin up and keep walking, but now is too close to that to risk it.

I fully intend to baby myself when I need to...plus, I kind of want to be able to walk the hills in SF on Tuesday. I'm hoping some liberal use of Witch hazel will dry those little suckers up by Monday night and I'll be good to go. I don't even have to be able to walk a huge long distance on Tuesday, just long enough to walk from the Bart station and hopefully meet up with DKM, then to Union Square where I will deposit the Spouse Thingy and spend a little time going up and down the inclinous streets around it.

No, I don't think "inclinous" is a real word. I probably justr made it up, but you know what I mean, and if everyone else adopts it, then it becomes a real word. So find ways to work it into your vocabulary, ok?

Great. You're aces.

On event, we walk an inclinous street, turn right (or left) and walk on a non-inclinous, the walk another inclinous. It makes it easier.
Just saying.
