As you know, I recently had a little bit of chafing on the underneath of my upper arms while running. At the time I was wearing two sports bras (thanks for all those who suggested it, I certainly don't want my new perky boobs bouncing around all over my chest so I strap those puppies down tightly) plus a vest with a built in bra thingy which made the seam on the side of the vest stick out quite a bit which rubbed against the underneath of my upper arm. YOH! RUNNING IS DAMN HARD!
Anyway, I asked for suggestions from you kind folk and I got all sorts of excellent advice. Something called Bodyglide (which I thought sounded just like sex lube), or bum cream (none left in the house) or good old Vaseline. Which I should have plenty of lying around. But of course, the damn Vaseline was nowhere to be found at sparrows fart on Thursday when I wanted to go for a run.
I searched for as long as I could but time was marching on and I had to leave the house to take the kids to school so in desperation I peered into the back of my bathroom cupboard and found an old, unused tube of "Intimate Personal Lube For Her Pleasure". I thought about it for a few seconds ('hmm, I am sure Bodyglide must be very similar to personal lube.....right?) and then thought "oh well, might as give it a shot". I pumped a whole lot in the palm of my hand and applied liberally to my upper arms and around my armpits.
This was not a good idea. FYI: Personal lube makes VERY bad anti chafing gel.
I have since learnt that personal lube gets very thick and sticky, almost like glue, when it is on your hot skin. It was quite a challenge to run with my upper arms almost glued to my side with lathers of now hot, thick and sticky personal lube. I was so paranoid that somehow the cars driving past knew I had personal lube on my upper arms. I wont be doing that again in a hurry. But hey, at least my armpits were turned on.
