A friend of mine and i were talking about marathons. I am training for a marathon in May and he has run a marathon a few years ago.
he mentioned chaffing, and advised to use vaseline on areas like legs, thighs, arms, etc...........
I did not know this, as i've never heard of it before.
Is it really necessary? do runners suffer from chaffing?
I thought that it only happened when skin is exposed on runners who run in shorts or vests, but the thing is that I never run with shorts and vests.
I always, always run in long running trousers and long sleeves, regardless or weather (for personal modesty reasons),
until now the longest i have been running is two hours 15 minutes, and i was ok,
and this is why i was wondering if someone here can advice about this: can you suffer from chaffing if you wear clothes? does chaffing happens with long trousers and long sleeves?
