Self-Help For Blister Sufferers | My First Book

by Rebecca Rushton

There are certain inquiries I get every day of the week. They go something like this:


"I'm training for a marathon and I keep getting blisters under my big toes. I use [insert blister strategy]. It helps a bit but I still get these blisters. I want to run a half-marathon this weekend. What can I do? Please help!"


I love getting these emails. I know I can help this athlete more than they even realise.

Combined with the popularity of my "blisters by anatomical location" articles (and the unexpected popularity of an image on Pinterest: this one), I decided it was time to write a book. So athletes like you can have expert tips and insights at your fingertips. So here it is ...


The Blister Prone Athlete's Guide To Preventing Foot Blisters

Insider Tips To Take You From Blister Victim To Champion

How To Stop The 10 Most Common Blisters From Heel To Toe

Self-Help For Blister Sufferers | My First Book

The Blister Prone Athlete's Guide To Preventing Foot Blisters


Book description

Foot blisters can be tricky to avoid. New shoes, hot days, sweaty feet, hard surfaces, steep hills, longer distances. It can feel like you’ve tried everything but you still get blisters and you have no idea why. 

The fact is, stock-standard blister prevention techniques don’t always work, especially for those a little more blister prone than others. Thankfully, when you understand the four factors that combine to cause blisters, it changes everything. And I’m not talking about heat, moisture and friction. If you want to get on top of blisters in sport - these are a given! You need to find solutions knowing it’s going to be hot and sweaty in your shoes and friction levels are high.

In The Blister Prone Athlete’s Guide to Preventing Foot Blisters, the author outlines the best preventive strategies for the ten most common foot blister locations

It doesn’t matter what sport you play, what climate you live in or how blister prone you are, preventing blisters can be easy. But you need to consider each anatomical location on its own merits. This is what it takes to get on top of blisters when basic blister prevention techniques are not enough.
