Oh my poor feet...lol So today I started my work up training for my 13KM forced march. For those that have no clue as to what this is, it's my annual physical exam, and it's hell! I have to carry 55 pounds, wear my bucket (aka helmet), sling my rifle and go for 13Km at a speed of approx 10-11 min for every 1 KM! Sigh.. no small task and I am outta shape.. way to whip my arse back in though I think!
So this afternoon I did 6 km with no weight on my back and I did it in 50 min, which is faster than I need to go... but once I add the weight that automatically slows you down.. so I am right on track. I didn't tighten my boots before nor did I change my insoles.. and now I am nursing some pretty sore and nasty looking feet....LOL John had to drain one of my blisters, and I have a blood blister deep in my heel. I did an good salt soak when I got home and that made all the difference.. so did the Advil. I am not too sure if my feet are the reason I am not feeling too sore muscle wise.. maybe cuz the pain is in my feet, I can't feel my muscles... guess I'll find out tomorrow morning when I creak out of bed... I tell ya though.. I love that rush of endorphins after a good workout.. I was sweaty, and my water bottle was downed in record time I think!
So I am officially training.... and maybe soon... a thinner me...LOL Just by my little adventure today, I got 4 points back on my weight watcher points...GOTTA LOVE THAT!
