I use bodyglide in all relevant areas. However I find when doing runs of 10 miles or more bodyglide no longer seems to do the job and end up with sores particularly in the chest area. I'm a heavy sweater so covering a plaster on the relavant area won't stay on for long.
Does anyone have any other suggestions?
Becky, one way around it is the nice st johns people usually have a big tub of vaseline handy for big races at first aid posts but it's best not to think about who else has already put there fingers in it.
Now brace yourself for offers from other's around these parts offering to help rub it for you butch of pervs.
Do you mean under your bra strap area?
Does your bra support you enough, maybe need a new / better one if you're not small in that area.
*Slaps Cake* and other guys lurking!
PMSL at the 'brave soldier' name!
Sorry Cake! I know you're not a porvort* really!

RW usually embolden bra related threads too, just for the guys I reckon!
Used brave soldier as well, made no difference.
Yes I have a supportive bra as well (shock absorber) correctly fitted.
Cake - sort out your apostrophes mate!
ActionCat - it's chafed. One F.
Sorry - my two biggest pedant-triggers!
I've been suffering with this bra chafing in the centre of my chest on long runs too and now use a strip of Micropore tape on the area that gets rubbed and it's been great!
Doesn't come unstuck like plasters do and now no more sore ribcage
Quick grammar session:
You only need the apostrophe when something belongs to someone (or something), like Wilkie's shoes, or the dog's dinner, or when you leave out some letters and abbreviate, like Wilkie's (Wilkie is) coming round for tea or haven't (have not), didn't (did not), etc.
You don't need it when you're talking about plurals (as in shoes, sweets, threads), or on words like runs and finishes.
I shooda bin a teecha
Well don't worry about it too much, Cake - probably easiest to just not use them at all with the letter s.
I never thought you were lazy!
