I love to run a lot!! So I was super stoked to buy my first pair of speed shorts from Lululemon… they fit so cute and I looked like a legit runner! But on my first long run a new problem arose. As a gal who does not sport super thin perfect gap legs… I got some serious chaffing…. let’s just say walking was no fun! So I set out to find some possible remedies for fixing my ummm problem… 😉 So here’s to my gals who love to run and want to sport the cute shorts and want to nix the chaff!
Good Old Fashioned Baby Powder! Well my kids are older – no more diapers for me but I managed to find a lone bottle of the stuff and was pleasantly surprised by the help it provided! Not only did my legs smell baby fresh it helped aide my situation
Bodyglide Anti-chafe For Her I read several online articles on how well this stuff works and is non oily and non sticky! I will be ordering mine! So I’ll check back with a review! Or let me know if it worked well for you!
Hydration – The theory being the more water you drink and the better hydrated you are the less you sweat and the less friction will be produced… All good in theory and yes please drink your water while running. But no matter how you slice it, I’m a hot sweaty mess with water or without. And after having three kids I already have to stop enough for “potty breaks” this one really wasn’t a REAL solution for me! But let me know if it makes a difference for you!
Open that bedside “drawer” and use a little lube… I’m not making this shiz up it’s recommend on quite a few “runners” guides. I tired it and personally I think it just felt gross… It might of helped but it wasn’t for me. But maybe I don’t buy the right kind. 😉
Petroleum Jelly – worked OK but personally wasn’t my favorite.
