Got a lovely friction burn from my shorts lining right on the tip of my bell end from this morning's run. Stings a lot.

Just some information I thought you'd like to know.

Haha I get the thigh chub-rub shorts chafing if I don't wear leggings, and the nipple chafing if I don't slather them in copious amounts of vaseline before a 10k, but never had it there before.

Hang on - were you not wearing underwear?

No, I don't wear underwear with them. They have a swewn in mesh pair of pants anyway to hold the old chap in place. I can't imagine how sweaty it'd be with pants on.

I got some compression shorts to wear as underwear when I run because I found my regular boxers just couldn't handle the mix of intense sweat and friction and imploded in the crotch within months.

Also I find my nipples are mainly only sore when I'm really sweaty (usually if it's more than 23 degrees or so)/ there's heavy rain and it's more than 10k or so. Like you Aaron I found vaceline does the trick, but thankfully I've not had an issue for a while since it's been a mild, mainly dry, summer.

Tips for that? I always get it around the 10K mark, not the blood, but the strawberry floating pain.

Vaselining my nips (feels good man) worked for me, but it has left stains on my luminous yellow running shirt.

And yeah, I hear electrical tape or plasters can work too.

For nips I use a bit of vaselene plus a pit of this surgical tape,

Parkrun organisers looking to restart events in England by late October. I’ve definitely missed it while it’s been away.

Parkrun off again. I dont think we will see it again until easter.

In other running news; I usually get headaches after runs, so have been taking paracetamol. I generally get headaches alot anyway, so ive been having at least two paracetamol a day. Recently after runs ive been eating sea salted pretzels - the type that have nice big salt crystals on, and these seem to have stopped the post run headaches. IMO the old school electrolytes in the pretzels act alot better than the drink replacement supplements. So much so that for a week i kicked the paracetamol and havent been getting headaches. I think ive just been getting rebound headaches from the paracetamol. But Whilst I havent been getting headaches, my legs, knees, back, and neck have been aching. I dont know what the moral of this story is.

I've not been out running for about 3 or 4 weeks now as I've had (what's now been diagnosed as) intercostal muscle strain. It's been strawberry floating horrible, one night when I didn't know what it was I was in so much pain that I genuinely thought I might die.

The doctor said i can run, but have to be careful how I carry my upper body while moving, and not to breathe too heavily. He recommended a couple of short runs to test the water. I did a little 2 mile loop yesterday at 6am, my normal time, but because it's been a while I didn't appreciate how much the light had changed. It was pitch black! I'm going to need some sort of chest mounted light or something for the future because there we're entire sections that were so dark, if I didn't know the route I'd have had to stop and walk with my arms outstretched.

I ran The Fox Ultra (38 miles) two weeks ago. It was my third time running this race and so my main goal was to beat my previous best of 7hr 18min.

The course is a loop and the direction alternates each year. This year it was anti-clockwise and I think that is harder as you have all of the big hills at the start.

Anyway, I got off to a great start and at halfway I was on 6hr30 pace having got past the worst of the hills. I knew I would still slow down in the second half but sub 7 was looking possible.

When I got to the last checkpoint at 31 miles I had slowed a lot. I didn't have any injuries or specific issues, my legs were just aching, heavy and wouldn't go faster than 10-minutes a mile. It was also very hot. I was still on for sub 7 if I could speed up a tiny bit and usually I do finish strong in races so it wasn't over yet.

Straight after this CP is the last big hill. On a good day it is runnable but not easy, at the end of an ultra it was not runnable. So I was down another couple of minutes. Then my knee started playing up and I couldn't make up any time on the downhills either. I knew sub 7 wasn't happening. Right at the end the course was then diverted from the usual route and not knowing this diversion I paid close attention to the arrows guiding us. Unfortunately someone had sabotaged the final arrow and sent us the wrong way away from the finish line. I spotted it fairly soon and it only cost me a couple of minutes but others lost 15 minutes or more.

I crossed the line in 7hr 07m. So a new PB but not quite the sub 7hr time I was hoping for. In hindsight I could have saved those 7 minutes from stopping less at checkpoints. I skipped through the first two but then spent 5 minutes at each of the next three. Due to the covid restrictions checkpoints were a bit slower anyway but I always lose focus later in the race and don't move through CPs as efficiently as I should.

I think I need to up my weekly mileage and do some strength training to get past the wall I keep hitting around 20 miles in. It could be nutrition too but I did eat quite well here. Perhaps it was the heat.

My next race is Escape from Meriden in 6 weeks. It's 24hrs of running your own route, trying to get as far away as you can from the start (as the crow flies).
