#TrainingTruth: Running on the trail after a half marathon gives my fatigued muscles a break.
#TrainingTruth: Sometimes the last half of a run feels better than the first half.
#TrainingTruth: Chilly wet weather cannot dampen the awesomeness of a good run (finally).
#TrainingTruth: Chafing is not a fun experience.
I've always used Vaseline on my feet for long runs to prevent blisters. A couple of weeks ago, Rebecca sent me Gold Bond Friction Defense, an anti-chafing product that’s just hit the shelves, to try. Gold Bond Friction Defense is specially formulated to prevent friction, soothe and comfort skin and keep the sensitive area dry and smooth. It has a no-mess application, lower price point per volume, and is available in major retailers nationwide.
Just days before I received the product, I had my first "real" chafing experience caused by my sports bra rubbing against my torso during a half marathon. More recently, I experienced another chafing mishap because the inner shorts of my running skirt were too large. Ouch! I used Gold Bond Friction Defense to sooth my skin and reduce the friction on my sensitive area and I healed right up. Now I use GBFD on my feet and other sensitive areas before long runs.
Rebecca was generous enough to send me a stick and some socks to share with readers.
