Some unforseen problems...

So we've all heard of people hitting some roadblocks during their training for marathons and half marathons, right? I kind of almost expected something to go wrong. Maybe my knee? An ankle? Maybe the herniated discs I have in my neck and upper back would act up as they seem to always do?

Yeah, none of that so far, knock on wood. But I have hit a little...issue. I literally have a gash in my left shoulder.  It's from my sports bra. I finally found a decent bra to hold up the girls and was SO happy about that.  Problem is, all the, ehem, bouncing, is turning into a big problem.  The straps are chafing my shoulders and the back of the elastic band has formed a nice cut on my back. But the left shoulder is bad. Like, really bad. I have a bandage on it right now and it pretty much constantly hurts.

What the heck am I going to do? I decided not to run today and further irritate the cut but instead did a Biggest Loser Workout (The Biggest Loser Workout, Vol. 1) instead which has minimal up and down motion.  I've actually had this DVD for years and I love it! It's quick but it's HARD and leaves me sore every time! But I can't just take a long break from running! Why oh why can't they make sports bras with women who have big knockers??? Don't we deserve some quality duds too?

Knees feel good, back's alright, ankles are in tip top shape.  Where is the problem? Two of the things that make a princess, a princess! The boobs!


  1. I *so* understand where you are coming from. As a plus size gal it's been nearly impossible for me to find a good sports bra. In fact, I haven't found one yet, I work out in my regular bras and just make due with "the bounce". I know that there are plenty of skinny flat chested princesses that don't have this problem, but for those of us who do, it's the worst.

  2. I have heard of people using two sports bras at once to help with the problem. Good luck :(
