    @marisap2010 fantastic job! I bet you feel so great. I felt like it took a long time but once I saw my arms toning up it was such a boost.

    @polskagirl01 yay for getting your spot in the race! Quite the HM streak you have going and you are killing it!

    The medals are super cool with volcanic sand from Iwo Jima. I normally don't do virtuals, but I'm not passing up this medal.

    Anyone have any pro tips for dealing with painful, leaky (sorry for TMI) blisters under toenails? My big toe was sore after my long run (silly me, trying to run down a dry river bed in road shoes) on Saturday, and I'd noticed it was a bit purple looking but it wasn't until after this morning's run, when it started hurting again, that I really examined it and found it was raised and the corner (don't ask, it's a weird nail that was operated on 30 years ago and the roots down the sides were killed) was sticking up a lot. When I went to try and cut the corner to stop it catching on anything I found a blister underneath, which has been kinda leaking all day. I'm trying to keep it clean and let it air to dry it out, but dang it hurts and I have a virtual race on Saturday!

    The doctor who operated on it? Is that person still around and in your rolodex? Good luck with this but it sounds like a medical professional might help. I am so sorry you have to put up with this so close to a race. Ugh.

    If you have a hematoma, what a doctor would probably do is trephinate the nail.

    I never have the nerve with my own toes but my husband has done it with his toe and it was much improved afterwards. Just be sure to keep it clean.

    Y'all have a lot more stomach than I do. I almost faint at the thought of painful things happening to my boney areas.

    October Goal: 100 Miles


    I started off October with a 10K. It was another perfect running weather morning. I could really get used to this. I have a HM coming up on November 7th. I was following a Hal Higdon plan that I tweaked, and the last few weeks I have been running, but not doing any speed work. So today I attempted a Tempo Run. I'm not entirely sure if I did it right.

    You are where I want to be in about in 3-4 months. Right now I'm finishing a 10K training plan, will do a virtual 10K, take a week off, then start on training for a HM that would be in mid Feb, if it were being held. How did you choose that particular training plan for your HM?
