Warm weather - not sweating??

Was supposed to go out for my run W2R3 this morning at 9am but one thing led to another and I didn't get out til 2pm. It was only 17 degrees but very clammy, sticky, thundery feeling weather. Anyway, I was doing fine but I was really struggling with my breathing by the end of the second last run. By the end of the last one I could hardly breath at all (but recovered quickly). It was only when I was doing the cool down walk that I noticed that I had not been sweating, I was just really hot and clammy, my face had gotten redder and redder but not a drop of sweat. I thought it might be dehydration but I'd had a couple of glasses of water half an hour before I went out. Any thoughts?

good news was - no stitch this time :)

Were you wearing wicking material - it is amazing efficient? May also have be where you are in your cycle.

I have super wicking running clothes and they were bone dry. Maybe you are right about the cycle thing. Fingers crossed for next run on Sunday.

if your pee is still light, then you're not dehydrated:) I'd think of no sweating as a bonus- tell me how you do it!

Normally I do sweat - was just really weird today, just got hotter and hotter!

I wish I had that problem, it pours from me, down my face and into my eyes - ugh! I wear a sweat band on each wrist and try and pop it up as I go along, not a pretty sight I can tell you.

It was just today, bit weird. I used to go to a cycling spin class and even had to wear a headband to keep the sweat out of my eyes! At least people know you are working hard then :)

maybe because it was so muggy?
