Yeah, I've never heard of the stuff either, before reading about it in the book I mentioned in my previous blog. I decided to take a look online, it basically looks like a man's deodorant stick, but is supposed to do wonders for those long runs that are facing me later in my training. Haven't broken down yet to make the purchase, but I would really like to avoid blisters at all costs! Which brings me to the next thing on my running gear purchase list, a few good pairs of synthetic runner's socks. These are supposed to be another key to comfortable runs during training. According to most serious runners, cotton is the enemy when it comes to anything related to what you wear while running.
I have so much to learn, but I figure I need to read up now, so I won't be down for the count later on with blisters and chafing.
Did another 3 miles today and found some good stretches to do after my run. Apparently, stretching is only good when your muscles are warm.
So far so good for day two of training.
