I have proof that the detergent caused my skin issues (see “Ouch” for the background story).
On Sunday, I tucked my bandana into the waist band of my nifty running skort (which has caused no chafing over the last two weeks and been washed in the new detergent); evidently, this particular bandana hadn’t been rewashed since my skin issues. When I pulled down my shorts after the run, there were huge puffy welts where the bandana touched my skin…I’ve never had this happen and carry a bandana often.
It’s the soap. Mystery solved.
What I Learned This Weekend
- 360 is a tough ride
- I must not eat enough on the bike because of the way I run out of gas on my Sunday long runs
- If I’m going to do the 50 miler at Palo Duro, I need to run faster
- I really miss having people, especially my friends, to work out with regularly
- As badly as I’ve been treated recently, I simply cannot bring myself to respond negatively in social situations, so I have to trust in karma…that one day, what goes around will come around
August 12–18, 2007 workouts
