Congratulations To The Matildas
It was a great run by the Aussies - but Japan proved too good
On reading about the Matilda's concerns about the synthetic pitch (walking on hot coals, blistered feet, torn skin) I wondered how they might be managing their feet. And specifically how I would manage this problem if I was involved. I'm not involved and I have no information outside what has been reported. But let's read between the lines and figure out what the Matilda's are suffering with. What mistakes they made. And how they should manage it.

27 Things Every Runner Needs (And Wants) To Know About Blisters
A Runner's Guide to Blister Prevention & Treatment

THREE RUNNING SCENARIOS
1) You’re out for an early morning run before work and you feel a blister rubbing at the back of your heel ...
2) You’ve caught up with a couple of friends at a local race and all of a sudden your pinky toe feels like a piece of raw flesh ...
3) You’ve been training for an event. It’s the last big run before your taper and half way through, you feel the burn and squelch of a blister developing under the ball of your foot ...

HECK ... WHAT DO I DO NOW?
1) You take your shoe off and hobble home … who am I kidding, you tough it out and keep running!
2) You decide to ignore it and deal with it when you get home - don’t want to look like a wuss to your friends.
3) You take your shoes and socks off to find a deep blister under some thickened skin. “What do I do now? Should I pop it or just leave it alone? Is there enough time for this to heal? Is it going to give me grief on the day?
