|Sexy, huh? Working out with me boots.|
|Fancy "vapor barrier socks"|
|After photo of my feet.|
|Sock over bag.|
Oh, just in case you wanted to see what my feet look like after 2 to 3 hours in the boots with bags and socks....feast your eyes on that sexy foot photo above. My feet are soaked and they are not happy. Yes, I could be a foot model.
My plans are to break in my boots completely before I head out. I want to have all my gear fitted, comfortable, and ready to be used without any attention. If I am ready, I should be able to put on my boots without seeing my feet - essentially by feel. I want my lacing system to be pre-set so I don't need to think when I lace them. The lacing needs to be flexible depending upon my foot swell and comfort - laced loose when climbing in the morning to allow blood circulation and then tighter upon descent. These are typical lacing changes for all types of mountain adventures. All of these changes, however, require me to have well-fitted boots that don't hurt my feet. My current pair are the "best" for my feet but still my feet ache. I wish I could climb in my Olukai's.
Today is my day off. I have until February 12th to build up more of a load and then I start a little higher intensity training routine (nothing terribly intense though). Feeling great....ready to go. Wish my feet didn't ache.
More in about a week. Thanks for following along.
