Joggers nipple

Been lucky so far that I have not suffered from this old classic, but due to trying some running vests that were a bit courser and tighter than my usual technical tops, I did experience some chafing.

Wondered what people recommend, just a bit of vaseline/bodyglide , nipple covers/plasters or full on tassels(sorry I had to)

p.s. photos are not req'd to illustrate plz :P

At last! An occasion to celebrate being a lady runner ๐Ÿ˜€ *unburns bra*

I'm afraid I have nothing helpful to add, though I hear good things about lanacane for those with larger legs prone to a bit of chafe. Maybe something like that might work?

I guess a lot of ladies who run braless may also suffer. I have ordered some nipple tass*** I mean cream. hehe. Will try the ron hill stuff as the body glide is very pricey.. ยฃ20 for some vass.. jeez..

How about corn plasters? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‰

Don't think I have such a thing, too young for corns I think, though I do have vivid memories of an uncle digging away at his foot with a fishing knife. Ah that was the life hehe

Don't they have a hole in the middle, so would be completely useless, or is that your jest?

Ha ha yes that was the joke. Gross about the fishing knife ๐Ÿคฎ

Happened to me, ruined the run. Standard plasters will do.

NipEEZE plasters from Amazon work for me. Lanacane gel will help while you recover.

Hi Mike,

I think Jay, has got all the solutions.

Really got into this problem.

Hope he responds.๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

Really impressed with your 200km monthly achievement and your distance challenge target of 220km.

Even at your cracking pace you must still be running the eqivalent of around 4 days continuously in a month.

lol not quite bob, strava says 20hours last month, so nearly a day. Thinking I may regret the optimistic target of 220 as I have decided to have a slow week this week as legs aren't happy at the moment and mind isn't in the game.

I was never any good at mental arithmetic, your pace must be even quicker than I thought.๐Ÿค”

Hey ho it is much more than I could ever do, enough said.๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ’ฅ

PS. Got it now Mike, at an average pace of 6mins/km or 10 km/hr you do 200km/month.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

In the same 20 hours at 10 mins/km or 6 km/hr I do 120 kms/month.Or I would need 28 hours to achieve your 200 kms/ month.That sounds better.๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜‚

What an old snail I am.๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

What a man you are.๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ’ฅ

I'll do it a slow pace, so really just a long recovery jog, plus lots of stops for photos, map reading and maybe even a sqkr style icecream

I did incorrectly order XL which were huuuge, I could sleep in one as some sort of bivouac, so I have tried medium in the SunDried ones which seem the right fit, i'm tall 6'3 but athletic hehe. Excuse the grim expression, I was not having a fun run last night. photos.app.goo.gl/tNqGKkJ3L...

Bodyglide works every time, and really tight tops

I was very confused by a passing reference to pasties once, until my daughter kindly pointed out that they were not all of the Cornish variety :O Luckily my sports bra ensures that I don't suffer in the chest area but my arm band for my phone rubs so I use Body Glide which is great. Perhaps that might help you too? Hope you can get it sorted.
