After yesterday’s poetic entry I felt I should go back to business as usual and let you know that I have sanitary towel chafe-age.

I did a long run on Sunday - 17km- while on my period (period, schmeriod; I’ve never considered changing my running habits because of them). After I was showered and had pottered around a bit something felt off. I mentioned it to Rich, like the towel wasn’t properly unfolded so I had the sticky bit next to my skin but, on examination, this wasn’t the case.

The following morning I ran 7km and, by the end, the strangely odd feeling had started to feel like serous chafe-age. I just wanted to rip the pad out, there and then, but I realised this was probably a little uncouth so I suffered through.

Yes folks. I have chafe marks down there.

Ouch! I may have suggested one (or both) of these in the past, so forgive me if I'm repeating myself: Have you tried a cloth pad or a cup? I don't run.... ever.... but I've heard a cup is great for that because it moves with your body. I have played at the park wearing one (and gone to the pool) so I can attest to those motions, but straight up running (and maintaining the run) I cannot. xx

I've chaffed everywhere!!!! It's not fun that's for sure!!!!
and btw, I find when I'm having my period, I usually hate the thought of running but while I'mdoing it and afterwards I feel a million times better!

Ouch!!! I get chafing when I run in shorts so I can't, and that's bad enough. But even higher?? Ouch. And running for that long... double ouch!

The endorphins his the pain until much later! Rich filmed me walking up the stairs to my sister's flat while holding my clothing away from the area!! X
