how to define your runner profile? type of race, length, motivation, etc.
runner for fun, rather on the ultra-trail. My longest race is the Swisspeaks 360, the complete crossing of the Valais (360 km, 25'500 of D +). The motivation is to discover new places and new people, to make the most of it.
why use an anti-chafing solution?
to avoid the inconveniences linked to running, such as warming and blisters on the feet or sensitive areas.
why did you test swip?
a friend of mine told me about this cream. Other creams I have used in the past required repeated applications and required me to stop regularly to remove my shoes. With swip, the cream stays on longer and therefore protects the skin better. In addition, I prefer to use a cream made in Switzerland in order to favour local companies.
can you describe the application and use?
i apply the cream a few hours before the race, once or twice. That's enough for the day, but if necessary, I take it with me in my bag to apply it during the day.
what are the pros and cons?
the absence of irritation is necessary for an anti-friction cream . But more importantly, it penetrates very quickly and leaves no trace. My skin is protected over a long period of time, which is an essential factor for me. It is not steaky and its application with the hands is very easy. It is absorbed by the skin, like applying a moisturizer. The pleasant smell is a plus. Cons, I don't know, I didn't have any problem with swip.
would you recommend swip?
it's already been done, with a lot of people.
