If you have read this blog with any regularity, you know about my bloody problem.
In running long distances, I am my worst nemesis.
Actually it is my nipple who is trying to hold me back. I'm still looking for a solution to my problem. But I think I am close.
I've tried many things to keep my nipple from bleeding like crazy. I switched shirts from one fabric to another, tried band aids, vaseline, Body Glide. The Body Glide actually helps ease the immediate pain but does nothing to prevent the bleeding, and once the Body Glide has worn off, I feel pain.
But one of my fellow Lopers suggested band aids, so I'm going to try that again. I just have to go find some at the store. I need some that will stick and that cover a lot of space. I used a small one Wednesday but it fell off during the run.
I feel that I must rid myself of this problem soom. My nipples will only continue to take a beating throughout the rest of the year and into next year, so I'm worried that it'll get to the point where the pain becomes unbearable.
I'm going to try band aids on Sunday. I hope I can find some good ones, for my nips' sake.
