Hello all. I have just discovered this site having been running now for almost a year. I went straight for the LFM to raise money for the MS Society. I managed to get off to a good start (never run before in my life) only to suffer a nasty ankle injury which put me out of action for 4 months. I managed to get back on the road 9 weeks before the race and completed it in under 6 hours raising over £3100, despite an injury two days before to my knee (twisted knee cap).
The ankle, knee and back (being treated for at the moment) I can cope with but my question is, does anyone have any advice on blisters and how to prevent them. I find these far more painful than any of the above. I have tried the socks, the plasters, the gel and vaseline all to no avail. All suggestions gratefully received.
