Made it through my second try at the 7-miler. My intervals weren't on target, but my goal was to go for perceived effort and get through it, if nothing else. It snowed a little on the way, nothing major. Used a new pair of Addictions, and I probably should've started them with a shorter run -- got newness blisters on both my achilles, worse on the right foot than on the left. I would have given this the biggest smiley face, but the blisters got quite painful from about mile 3 to mile 6, and had to stop and hobble a few times to shake out my feet. From 6 to the end they went a bit more numb. They'll be fine once I break the shoes in more. Come to think of it, it's probably because I'm wearing different socks than I usually wear. Christ -- I just realized I'm writing about socks, as if you're interested. Anyway, feeling happier today about running in general than I did yesterday.

    I don't remember the brand, but I have some that are short, thicker, made of tech fabric. Some are made of cotton, but I've never had a problem with friction.
