Same shoes, same socks, same running. New problem.
It would be really helpful to have some input from the seasoned runners out there, or indeed from anyone who’s experienced the same...
Last year bought Mizuno Wave Rider 7’s. Ran 500-800 miles in them, including an Ironman marathon. No trouble. Replaced them with identical pair. I run in the same socks. I have the same running pattern. Yet I’ve started to blister to the rear of my right arch.
Historically, I’ve had similar problems further forward in the arch but that was mitigated by buying a shoe with a wider toe-box.
Kicked out 11 miles today. Arch is now red raw. Two HMs coming up in next fortnight. Then Paris & VLM in April during the space of a week.
Any guidance on how to address the issue would be HUGELY appreciated.
After over two years of trying to dodge blisters (and generally failing), I’ve made an absolutely revolutionary discovery... duct tape and Vaseline!Having slapped a load of duct tape over the offending area in my shoe and making sure the same point on my foot is well covered in Vaseline, I seem to have completely alleviated the issue.I suspect this might already be a known solution but it wasn’t shared with me and so I felt compelled to put it out there for the benefit of other sufferers. I hope it helps.Rw
