Is it just me or is anyone else trying to figure out if they’re having hot flashes while exercising or is it just this unbearable, intense heat wave we’re experiencing?

I woke up this morning at 7:15 am---I was going to head out to the Duke Trail to get my morning walk/run in. I turned on the TV.It was already 77 degrees and the humidity was over 80!OK…I had to ask myself, “Am I going to go out there and perspire like a pig like I did yesterday?”

Yesterday’s temperature was 75 degrees when I woke up but the humidity was in the lower 70s.I figured I could handle that so I took my bottled water and off I went. I hadn’t even walked a quarter of a mile when I began sweating profusely!I thought I was having a hot flash!I took a swig of water.It was hot enough to make tea.People were passing me left and right.One woman passed me wearing makeup!And to top it all off, she didn’t have a drop of sweat on her face.I figured she must be testing a new product because it made absolutely no sense to be wearing makeup in that heat.Or maybe she was hoping to catch the eye of one of those sweaty baby boomer men who came running by.

Well, I decided not to go to the trail today.Besides, I have a gym membership so this would be a good day to use it---even if I have to drive 15 miles to get there.Another thing…I’d much rather have a hot flash in the gym because of a thing called air conditioning.
