Day 24: Update from Nashville

From Tim Wambach: Miles- 31.12

By the looks of the update you would think —-great day. I wish that were the case.

After getting back to the van – I do my routine. Inspect my feet. (I do this multiple times a day)
My left foot was hurting me the last 5 miles or so. When I took my sock off, I noticed that a blister was forming underneath my callused skin. The skin that had already glassed over and feeling good. I don’t know what happened.

When I got back to the hotel, I inspected further. The blister is really deep. Too deep to lance it and get the fluid out. I was able to get a little fluid out, but not nearly as much as I needed. I’m at a loss. I’m at a point in my journey that I can’t afford anymore setbacks.

I’m going to take the rest of the evening to figure out what my plan is for tomorrow. Unfortunately, I may have to gut it out and “play” thru the pain again. Tomorrow will be another test.
