One of the things that has always daunted me about the race was my being flat footed because that often results in weaker knees. Endurance races are, supposedly, a no-no for people like me. So the question is, will my knees be able to take 7 days of intensive runs up sand dunes and across squishy soft sand? The mind is strong but will the body be willing? So I finally paid a visit to a podiatrist, the sublime Mr. Leong, and got a pair of insoles for flat footed ducks like myself :)
The doctor did warn me that if there was strenuous activity before I’d fully adapted to those insoles I could develop blisters. Well, what can I say? I’ve developed the mother of all blisters this past weekend but at least the 12 km run is done! Hoping to take this up to 16 km the coming weekend. Vamos!
