Podcast With Coach Al Lyman

From Pursuit Athletic Performance (USA)

Coach Al Lyman, from Pursuit Athletic Performance, and I chat about the myths around blisters which don't serve athletes well at all.

"Some of the things we discuss in this podcast:

  • What are the most pervasive myths surrounding blisters? There are plenty!

  • What's the difference between rubbing and shearing and why does it matter?

  • Are certain folks more prone to blisters?

  • What about shoe fit and lacing options?

  • Do lubricants like vaseline or powders work to reduce blister risk, or are you actually making things worse by using them? (Hint: I unfortunately discovered this during my last race, a 50 mile trail race in Florida a little over two weeks ago! Not good). :)

  • And much more!"
