I’ve been running for a while now. About 4 years. Maybe that’s not a long time really, but to me I’m proud. I was fairly athletic. I played softball until I was 13 with the occasional game here and there in gym class. I began dancing when I was 4 and until recently kept with it. (I promise that in the upcoming new year I will take a class. I miss it too much!) I worked in local theatre for 6 years. I’ve always been an active person. But, here’s my problem. Ever since I started my “hard core” running training 13 weeks ago I’ve noticed something.
See I am a D cup actually almost a DD. With my more frequent and lenghty runs my boobs have become very sore. Here’s my dillema. I’ve never had this problem. I’ve always had good bras and good sports bras. As a dancer you have specific underwear for your costumes. And that always worked. Something is not working. My boobs well they are really heavy. I wish there was a way for me to weigh them individually. I bet they are 5 pounds or more a piece! I have no idea how to remedy it. I have NO idea what type of underwear or bra or compression shirt to wear. It’s gotten to the point that when I brush against something it hurts. And running is don-right painful. But I won’t stop running. There was a point in time where running for a minute was not possible. Now I am running for 30 minutes or more. Last night I only ran 1/2 mile and walked 1 1/2 because of this. I don’t want to stop running. This pain, however, it can be unbearable. Any suggestions from my imaginary readers would be great. And I know my male readers do not have the issue up top, rather below the belt. Is it the same for you um….down there? Help my poor achy boobs.
