***warning below post contains some bodily issues that may not be suitable for all readers. nothing graphic, but hey--these things happen as a result of training***
After my ride yesterday I had some minor chafing----nothing awful, but definitely uncomfortable! I needed to put some ointment on and I didn't want hydrocortisone or anything with active medicinal ingredients. So----I thought about it and low and behold I came up with Desitin! The diaper rash ointment. Let me tell you--that $5.00 tube is 1/2 gone and I bought it last night. Worth every penny. It actually dries so it's not messy and it works AWESOME. Woke up this morning very happy. I'm taking at least 2 tubes with me to Ironman and I plan on testing it out next week during my ride. I really don't want chamois butter---it's expensive and i don't know, the idea of it just sounds gross. I figure anything made for a babies ass has to be good enough for mine right? =0
I had a 75 minute swim so far today, all went well, thanks to the Desitin working over night =0...trying to get in at least my 40 minute run later!
