Moist arms and floaty head!

We went out for our usual half hour run. I was a bit warey as I was very sleep deprived. But I wanted to stick to routine. There was a massive black cloud so we decided to christen our new lidl jackets. Off we plodded. I'd told myself speed did not matter, after 2 nights of not sleeping.

As I huffed along I realised , because I was so tired , my head was not connected with my body! I knew I was puffing etc and could guess my legs were tiring but I just felt all marshmallowy. In an odd way could have run for ever - though that would have ended with me gently collapsing! By the end we'd only been a tiny bit slower than last week. Result! And it helped later - I slept last night! Woo hoo! Still tired though - repaying sleep debt!

Another thing we discovered - sweaty arms. The jackets were good and cheap and protection from the wet stuff falling from the sky, but no good at getting rid of the sweat. Still at that price, can't complain! Will keep me going till the supply work picks up and I can afford something posher!

  • Sorry, I have to ask (as a "Treadmiller" - I don't run outside) but what's the point of a sweaty jacket? If you're wearing one to stay dry if it's raining & you still get wet anyway? Can't get my head around that - lol!

  • I know! But it was just me arms and it kept the wind off!

  • I've given up on my waterproof as I decided the rain was preferable to sweat, just tie it round my waist as it's hi-vis. If anyone knows of a one that doesn't trap the sweat then please let me know!

  • Well done with having a good run after sleep deprivation. I must admit I have opted for no rainproof as I when I wore my lightweight one I felt like I was running in a shower curtain. I think I prefer getting wet with the rain.
