Nike Plus Blister

WARNING!!!! The contents of this blog may not be suitable for children under the age of 13!!!

K so as I wrote on a previous blog, I have recently been running using the new Nike Plus. Well, I also got a new pair of Nikes that come specially made for the nike plus equipment to go underneath the sole insert. And I love my new shoes. But I didn't realize that attached to these new shoes was a warning!


The first day I got my new shoes I decided to break them in by running about 4 miles. Yeah, not such a good idea. By the end of my run my right foot began to burn where my instep is. Upon arriving at home, I took off my shoes and socks and realized that there was a nice blister beginning to take shape. So I but some stuff on it and preceeded to run another 4 miles the next day. Yeah, you would think I had learned my lesson about breaking these great shoes in easily! Because another blister began to form on top of the one from the first day and now I have one huge blister on my foot!


So I began to do a little research. I had gotten blisters on my heels before but I have never received blisters on my instep before. So I thought, well maybe I run really wierd because it was only forming on my right foot. And then I came across others who had gotten blisters from their new Nike plus shoes too! And man I am so glad I didn't decided to run 26 miles thats first day or else my foot would be looking more like this!!! Yikes!!!
