I thought it was about time I started to do some training so about 4 weeks ago I joined the gym. (Please bear in mind that a gym is an alien place to me so I was being very brave).
I found all the instructors at my new gym to be very helpful and keen to give me guidance on stamina building. So I firmly believe that I will be able to complete the GNR successfully.
I've come across two problems since my training started. The first being blisters. I have terribly flat feet and managed to get one huge 10p piece sized blister on the area where the arch of my right foot should be (and a smaller one on the left foot). I bought some gel insoles to support the arch and the blistres have gone so all seems fine at the mo.
However, I am only running 2.5miles at the moment - nowhere near the required 13 - and I am worried the blisters might return when I start running greater distances.
Anyone got any flat feet/blister advice?
The second problem I've had is illness. I've had flu (in May!!!) so I've had to miss a few training sessions. Gutted!!!
