The State of My Feet

 

I ran just over 8kms this morning on my usual Engen route.  I like this route because it is flat and the tar is kind to my feet which works well for me on my Tuesday Recovery Run.

This is what my feet looked like immediately after my run:

A little dirty, but nothing that can’t be cleaned.  (If it has been raining and the roads are wet, my feet don’t get as black as this.)  I climb into the shower and rub my feet with an exfoliating sponge and some soap and they look pink and fresh!  Occassionally I’ll use a pumice stone to get the back of my heals – not the underneath of my feet because this would take the skin off and I wouldn’t want that.

I don't care what it looks like as long as tar is kind to your feet and washes off. Nice run!

Happy feet! I just read your Om Die Dam report but for some reason your previous report's comments are shown below it. You had a great run, well done! I just posted my report as well. I was a bit sick and had a tough run.
