As I slowly make my way toward my weight goal, I’ve had some clothes issues to deal with. Don’t get me wrong. They’re good problems to have. The clothes fit too big.
I’m low on cash so certain things take priority. Work clothes top the list. My workout clothes are at the bottom of the list. I noticed my running compression shorts are loose. They’re my favorite running shorts, but they were pricey, so I didn’t anticipate buying new ones soon.
Yesterday’s run changed that plan. Specifically, the chafing changed that plan.
I suppose a cheaper solution would be to try some anti-chafing product, like BodyGlide. During my time with Team in Training, BodyGlide was mentioned once. Other runners simply suggested using Vaseline for your feet. And that worked fine for me. For feet.
Other parts are going to need an alternative.
One product review for an anti-chafing item stated the downside was it melted in the heat. This South Texan is going to need something that can withstand the heat.
I starting hurting at four miles. I hate to image the pain if I don’t find a solution before the McAllen Marathon or any of the other upcoming runs. My search begins.
