Since my event, The Grand Union Canal Ultra, I have rested in a way of healing my blistered foot. I have listened to the treatment nurses at the surgery, 'do NOT touch, pick or slice'.
I am almost ready to get back to my first post run training off-road. I have also been thinking and learning ALOT about my DNF. But mostly in a POSITIVE way.
I had to realise that continuing on within the event could have caused permanent damage AND for a lot longer recovery, both mentally and physically. Not letting your pride affect a wise decision sprang to mind.
