Advice on reducing and or treating sore nips
I have starting running further in preperation for a Marathon next year and over the long distances, mainly above about 9/10 miles i am getting very sore nips especially in the colder weather and unfortunatly most of my running for the next few months will be in close to 0 degress or below as in the north of scotland, so any advice would be very much appreciated.
Stick plasters over them.
Sticky plasters works for me. If you've hairy nipples, take 'em off in the bath.
Micropore tape - very small patches of.
Zinc oxide tape (get mine from e-bay)
Just peel zinc oxide tape off after bath or shower post run & try to avoid sticking over hairs when applying!
I'd also recommend buying a product like "Bodyglide" or "Brave Soldier Friction Zone" - both have worked fine for me when running distances up to a marathon.
