KT-astrophe! @kttape


So, anyone that has read my blog for any period of time knows how much I like my KT-Tape.   As a side note- I am a guy.

How are these two related you ask?  Well, the instructions on the KT-Tape Website clearly say:

Hint: Tape that is still strongly adhered to skin after 5 days may be loosened with baby oil for 15-20 minute

Well, I had noticed that it was sticking very well to the calluses on front (the pad? That part where a fore-foot striker hits the grounds with..) and the heel of my foot.  I didn’t really think anything of it however.  Well on Friday night, I pulled the KT Tape off from the previous weekend (put on saturday night, and worn through the beach-run.)  Well, it seemed it was VERY well attached as it pulled out a part of the callus!  (Sorry, I have really ugly feet…)

It literally pulled a sliver of callus out all the way down!

It literally pulled a sliver of callous out all the way down!

When I looked at the tape –

Skin left on the tape after I pulled it off

It seems they mean it with the baby-oil to loosen everything up!

 

So, if you are going to leave your KT Tape on for many days – remember to use the baby oil to remove it!

About

I run, because I am a runner. Having realized that I have always "been a runner" - even when I went years with out running, I am learning how it has integrated itself in all aspects of my life. When I started running in highschool, my perspective on life changed. Funny that I didn't realize how much it had affected it until just recently.
