Cool wood foundation for shed sitting on concrete slabs.. seal the concrete?

hello,

we're about to put up a shed.. we have the rocks down and level and have masonry slabs (15.5" x 3.5" approximate).. I was wondering, what to use, if anything, to seal the bricks to decrease water from sitting on the brick where the wood is..

thanks

i thought about Rust-Oleum leak seal which would put up a barrier making water just slide off..

What you're calling slabs and bricks are really concrete blocks. They don't need sealing, as that would just cause them to retain water on the surface, enabling the water to soak into the wooden contact members of the shed. Leaving small air gaps between adjacent blocks would be good, giving any excess runoff a place to dissipate into the rock base you're placed.
