Does anyone else have a similar policy? 

Is it because of dirt/mud or for the reasons in the article?

Thought as we head into our long runs this weekend:

Never be afraid to end a run early if you feel a niggle. 

A run that's cut short and 1-2 days off after that will always be preferable to pushing through and developing a full blown injury! 

Any blister horror stories you care to share? 

Bonus for photos ;) 

On Twitter a runner asked about how to deal with a toe blister (thankfully not in our shoes!).

If the blister is flat, you can cover it with a band-aid to prevent it from further developing. 

When the blister sticks up, best to drain and cover it. Never put a sticky side of the cover onto the skin though!

Blisters are most likely to occur when the foot moves around a lot in the shoe. This mainly happens for three reasons:
1) The shoe is too big and laces cannot hold the foot in place. 
2) Excessive downhill running, which can cause the foot to move forward. 
3) Fatigue during long runs can change your form to more of a shuffle, which may make your foot move around in the shoe more. 

The best way to prevent this type of injury (yes, a blister is an injury!) is good shoe fit and maintaining a good running technique.
