This is what happens when you don’t kart with gloves:
I’ve never karted with gloves but I think I should start, otherwise I might get worse blisters than this. It might also be a result of me gripping the steering wheel too tight, so after using gloves, if I were to still get blisters, means I’m really gripping too tight.
I decided to break the blister and as a result it hurts a lot, especially when I wash my hands and when I am doing Bikram Yoga with the sweat pouring into the open wound nonstop.
Well, lesson learnt – am going to invest in a good pair of gloves so that my little palms are well-protected!
Other than blisters, I’m also getting these HUGE bruises on my hip bones and the part of the thigh below the hip bone. I have photos of these bruises but I’m afraid I can’t show them to you or I might be charged with indecent exposure!
Think I will have to start sewing little cushions into the suit or pad the seat up well man… I frightened myself when I was looking in the mirror during Bikram Yoga and saw the ugly bruises!
