Vaseline or bodyglide.

U have my sympathy - did a 10m race end Aug and had really sore/bloody nips by the finish. Stung really bad in the shower for days after.

I had half a TUB of vaseline on my feet yesterday and I've still got blisters.....

Wrong trainers or what LB??

After suffering with a pair of GT2140's giving me awesome blistered arches, I am of the conclusion that vaseline on the feet actually makes them worse, just seems to make the sock/shoe slip more and create more friction.

They'll toughen up eventually, but in the meantime, once they are sore, I've found the only real solution is plasters.In fact I nearly always wear plasters for races, esp as club vests often seem to have seams in the wrong places, and numbers often tend to accacerbate the problem.

It's no good getting cheapie ones though, because they don't stick very well. It's agony pulling them off, especially as they always end up with quite a few hairs attached, but that is only very short lived, and far better than having to walk around at work leaning forwards all the time so my shirt doesn't rub.

Vasaline ruins your running gear, I always use plasters their not exspensive and no mess.

Lol yes your right there ec thats why I now shave my nipples...extreme maybe but my running and and soreless nipples take the priority

LOL @ Runexeter!!

I'm gonna try the plaster route in the morning, just cut a couple down to size to minimise the scream when I pull them off after the run!!

I suspect its the mesh lining that did it Paul - it works like a cheese grater!  You would probably have been fine if you had had a vest or t-shirt on too.

I bought a 'Gore Running'  T-shirt after suffering joggers nip with my Helly Hanson and haven't had any problems since. Hell i even ran London to Brighton without any chaff at all, just don't buy one in blue cause it shows up all the salt

Tech t shirts do my nipples in badly.  Never seem to notice until I get in the shower and the encrusted salt dissolves and washes into the open sore. Nice.

Bought some Bodyglide and the problem is just a bad memory.  I commend it to you unreservedly.

Bodyglide is far better than vaseline, it doesn't stain or ruin clothing. Designed especially for triathletes to stop wetsuit chafing.

If you search for this, you will find umteen threads already with the same topic.

I wear a canterbury base layer........no nipple problems so far

Plasters on the nips on any run from 10k or more for me.........I learnt this the hard way!

 Did any one see that Nick Cotton from eastenders doing a interview when he finished the GNR?  I had to laugh, he had two long bloody stripes where he hadnt put plasters on the front of his t-shirt!

LOL

cut 2 big holes in your top where your nipples are, also reccommend this for women.
