I didn't run yesterday, unfortunately, and I might not tomorrow either because I have some painful blisters on my feet from the new shoes. I'll try the running socks tomorrow and see if the cushion helps at all, and if my shoes are dry.

I went for a 12 km walk today instead, with my dogs and my dad's co-worker's dog who we had to babysit because it can't stay in the house alone or it'll flip out and make a filthy mess. D: We started the walk at 11:00 and got home at ~13:15. Not bad for 12 kilometres. I want to run some of that distance next time we walk it, though. The only bothersome thing about it is that the men in their cars slow down and watch while we go by. It's creepy - there are lots of East-European hookers on that road and often mistake us for them and ask us how much we cost, but most of the time they just gawk. I think it must be weird to see people getting exercise outdoors here in Naples, because it's so polluted and dirty that nothing is attractive to look at. Except, apparently, the hookers and crazy North Americans who walk their dogs in the dead of winter. Which is all of maybe 15 degrees Celsius, and not cold at all if you've ever lived in Winnipeg, which has been the coldest place on Earth several times the last couple years. o.o

Anyway, the walking wasn't so bad, except part of the man-made lake was flooding and the polluted water got into my brand new shoes, and gave me blisters. Oh well, they'll heal up quickly, and they didn't pop so they shouldn't get infected.

It's funny though - I have the running bug. It's too bad my shoes are too wet. Maybe this evening they'll be dry enough and I can do another mini-run in the parco. :)
