I sweat. A lot.
So it's not unusual for me to feel like I just stepped out of the shower when I get done with a run. And that's exactly what I felt like today.
Only problem? That run? It was indoors. On a treadmill. At the air conditioned YMCA.
See it's been in the mid-80s here since Sunday. And normally I can handle that. But when Mother Nature throws in 72 degree dew points? That's where I draw the line. And get cranky. And head indoors. Because seriously, I left the office tonight and it was actually hard to breathe. It was that humid.
And while I headed out on my bike yesterday after work for a 17-miler, I didn't really want to chance it with a run. So I opted for the YMCA. Thinking it would at least be comfortable while I ran.
I have a feeling the YMCA air conditioning was broken. Maybe too many people had the same idea I did and the poor unit couldn't keep up. Whatever the reason, it was hot in there. And I couldn't even blame it too many people in the cardio room. Because there were maybe 5 other people besides me.
So the 4.25 mile run I did tonight? I should have just tried to do it outside, because it was just as hot and humid indoors as it was outdoors. By the time I was done, the sweat was dripping off me, rolling down my body. It felt I just stepped out of the shower.
But the run was done. And let me tell you, it never felt so good to actually get in the shower once I got home.
