Marathon Footcare Tips

2019-08-29

Suitable shoes

Wearing a pair of suitable shoes is much more than just a shoe that you think is comfortable. Depending on whether you are planning to walk, jog or run, you need to find the shoes that are not only suitable for you, but also provide the shoes you need. Factors such as shape, grip, shock absorption, and cushioning vary depending on how you plan to complete the marathon.

Choosing the right socks is also an important thing to remember. Synthetic fiber socks are better for sports than cotton or wool because they absorb less moisture and prevent moisture inside the shoes. Choosing a pair of socks is essential to avoid blisters, because if the socks slip and slip, they will rub against the feet and blister will form. Ideally, you should wear the socks you plan to wear to buy shoes, because this will give you the best idea of how everything fits and feels comfortable.

Take care of your skin

Blisters are not the only problem facing your skin. The skin on our feet is four times thicker than the skin on other parts of the body. Although this is usually to protect our feet from hard and rough terrain, this thicker, drier skin is more susceptible to cracking. With high impact, repeated activities such as running, cracking is a very common problem. To avoid this, you should make sure to moisturize your feet regularly. In most cases, once a week is enough, although if you often have blisters, you should moisturize every day.

It is also helpful to use pumice to remove dry skin from the feet. The important thing to remember here is to make only one touch. For runners, using pumice helps prevent callus buildup, but you don't want to remove too much skin because it also acts as a buffer and protector.

Cool down

You may be familiar with the feeling of swelling and pain in your feet after running, but that doesn't mean you should endure this feeling. Washing your feet with a cold bath after running is a good way to relieve discomfort, but it can also help your feet avoid any long-term damage. The pressure we exert on our feet while running can cause a variety of pain problems, such as plantar fasciitis, swelling of the ligaments running along the soles of the feet. Such conditions can seriously hinder a person's ability to run, and the power of cold water should not be underestimated.

Nail care

The nails may be small, but if you don't care well, your nails will cause you a lot of trouble. For the marathon, the last thing you want to see is the ingrown toenails. This occurs when the nail is improperly cut and grows to one side of the skin, which can cause severe pain and infection. This seems counterintuitive, but when you cut your toenails, avoid cutting into U-shapes and sticking to more horizontal lines. This will prevent them from growing out and entering the skin. It is best and the easiest to cut your hair after taking a hot bath or washing your feet.

You should also avoid using products such as nail varnishes and varnishes because they prevent the nails from breathing and bacteria in the nails. This can also lead to infection.

If you plan to run a marathon, you may already have a lot to do, concentrate, but don't let inappropriate foot care tarnish all your efforts in other areas. Follow these suggestions and your feet should be ready to get ready for the day.
