When I called Chicken Face to tell him, he laughed then questioned my fidelity.
You see, last Saturday I got my very first wetsuit hicky…I mean wetsuit burn.
I’m usually pretty good about lathering up with some sort of Body Glide – I’ve even swam in my wetsuit completely without it. But oooh have I learned my lesson: USE SOME SORT OF GLIDE WITH YOUR WETSUIT!
I’ve heard of people using everything any of these products and more to help:
- Around your neck
- Around your shoulders
- On your wrist
- On your ankles
- Legs, ankles, arm…hell, just dunk your body in a giant tube of Vaseline.
Not only will it help prevent the burn, but it will also help you get your wetsuit off quicker.
Oh and side note, you won’t realize you got a wetsuit burn until you’re in the shower – when it buuuuuurns!
What product do you use? Any helpful tricks and tips?
A runner purchasing a swimsuit is strange, but doable. I buy swimsuits every summer. Buying a suit to “train” in is just the same, except that they are…well…uglier.
A runner investing in a bicycle is nerve wracking, but fathomable. I learned how to ride a bike when I was younger with my dad holding my pigtails while I was sans training wheels. Buying a bike to “race” on is just the same, except that they are…well…infinitely better and more expensive.
A runner purchasing her first wetsuit ever and squeezing into it is…HOLY CRAP THIS IS REAL!
You’d think that putting down thousands for a bike would be the factor that made you stop and think, but instead it was when I squeezed into my first wetsuit and simulated swimming on the couch for Chicken Face. He didn’t quite get it, but it was a solid kick in my own pants reminding me that my first triathlon is in May and my half Ironman is in July!
“Hey Chicken Face, can you take a photo of me for the blog?”
“Um, what do I do in this thing?”
Enter awkward wetsuit posing – I challenge you to come up with a good pose while in a wetsuit. Even Angelina Jolie’s right leg couldn’t do it.
Now that I’ve completely shamed myself, my dirty apartment, and my lack for online dignity, tell me, what was the one purchase that you made realize this is real.
