Had a very nice training run today in preparation of the St. Patrick's 10K race this weekend. I got below the 54 minute barrier for the first time since I broke my foot back in 2010. Ran a 53:51 this afternoon. Two days of rest and then the race on Saturday. I'm really looking forward to it.

It is hitting highs of 78 degrees now, so I wore my Speeds on a walk and will do so again tonight.  I have been wearing my Stems for about 2 weeks now with weather in the 50s, but now that we are in the 70s I am finally back in VFFS.

Well I've been off my feet for quite a while and am just now getting back to running, and being active again. I have had one long drawn out battle with plantar warts on both feet. I had them treated with cantharidic acid and liquid nitrogen, and I've had to go back for multiple treatments. They were brutal, leaving me with golf ball-sized blisters on my feet for at least a week at a time. It appears as though my feet are completely cleared up, it's been 3 weeks since my last treatment and my feet haven't felt this great in a couple of years. If you ever end up with those stupid things on your feet, don't do what I did and ignore them. Treat them as soon as possible and it will make the process a lot less agonising.

I have been out for 4 runs, and played badminton again last night for the first time in months in my komodosports. It felt great!! So happy to be back on my feet. Training for a half marathon is back on!

Some people on the forum may not understand just how bad plantar warts can be. They can be absolutely brutal. Back about 15 years ago I got one just below the ball of my foot. I did what you initially did - I ignored it. That thing got so deep it was almost down to the metatarsal before I had it treated. Awful things! The Doc I went to froze it and then cut most of it out. He finished it off by cauterizing it. Took me about 8 months before it was back to normal. Glad to hear you are almost 100% now.

I had plantar warts also! I was probaly 10-11 years old.  Mom took me to the Doc right away and after a couple of treatments All I remember is the doctor cutting and 'burning" inside the wart to kill the "root" and having BLACK looking holes in the bottoms of my feet for a couple weeks.  Cleared right up, though!

Take care of your feets!  Grin

Yeti,

Glad to hear you are back on your feet.

I had a Plantars wart once as well.  It hurt to step on it, so I did not ignore it for long.  I can relate.  Luckily it was my one and only occurence.

Similarly I had one as a teenager. It started like the feeling of having a small pebble trapped in the shoe and grew. I initially had the liquid nitrogen treatment (ineffective) and then the scalpel and silver nitrate (lunar caustic) treatment.

They tend to be called verrucas in the UK, hence the character name Verruca Salt in "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory".

Thanks everyone. I can't stress how much better it feels to run again without those on my feet.

If you ever find yourself in need to get one removed, my podiatrist used liquid nitrogen, and then put on some cantharidin (blister beetle extract) on top of the frozen areas. The following 24 hours was some of the worst pain I've ever experienced, but damn it worked well. Cantharidin is nasty stuff, but works well without resorting to cutting or burning. It creates some big painful blisters, but combine it with liquid nitrogen and it is really effective!

Never had those warts and hope to never, not sure I can imagine the pain and irritation of not being able to walk right.
(In KSO)Past few days been going out to ride bike around the park with the wife, went alone today and did two extra laps than with her and my legs are sore.
Now its time to finish off some barefoot sitting on the couch with my heavily shedding kitty.

Well it was a great day for a race. Temp at start time was 56F and sunny. Just a beautiful day for a race. I didn't finish in the top 10 of my age group, but had a great time never the less. The first place finisher in my age group (35 - 39) had a time of 38:18, pretty impressive for a weekend warrior. I finished with a time of 52:12, which I'm more than happy with. It should only get better as the season continues.

Got a park that's like exactly 1/4 mile away from my house, jogged there barefoot and jogged/ walked back. It's 3/4 mile around the park, hoping if I do this daily that to around the park could be possible in about two weeks.
Just rediscovered a friend that I'd all but forgotten about and he does some of the local races and mud runs, would like to try and get into that with him.

Finished Week 7, Day 1 of C25K... 2.5 miles in under 25 minutes.  Just two weeks ago I failed at my goal of 2 miles in 20 minutes.  Feeling VERY accomplished right now.
