Your in the middle on an enjoyable trail run with the sun shinning, a nice breeze blowing, and the birds chirping. Then all of a sudden you begin to notice some hot-spots on your feet. These burning sensations sometimes lead to the less-than-desirable blister.
Last weekend during the middle of a 14 mile jaunt on a local trail, a few places on my toes started to feel hot. I thought this was a bit strange because I rarely experience these kinds of issues.
My simple fix – Snug up the laces.
I had forgotten to snug up the laces tighter than I would for a road run. My feet had been sliding inside the shoe ever so slightly and creating hot-spots. Once my trusty hooves were locked down more snugly, I had no more sensations the rest of the run.
If you periodically or frequently get blisters, a simple snug-up may be worth a try.
Then if that doesn’t work, check out injinji socks.
Be active – Feel the buzz!
