Any tips people??
Went on a 6 miler yesterday and just wore my thin running jacket, its a WindStopper with a mesh lining and I now have sore nips!!
Any tips to save the nips as i'm out in the morining for a couple of miles and dont fancy the pain again!!
Wear a bra?
I think this is a fred for MEN. We don't have these probs, us wimmin.....
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.
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.

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!!
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.
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!
