run in near 80 degrees with 22-30mph wind gusts and the sun beating down on you?
- or -
run in a most-likely-humid gym on the infamous dreadmill?
Well, I just couldn't bear the idea of doing another dang run on the treadmill. I figured it was going to be too humid in the gym for my liking (which increases the amount of stinky men) and thought a cool breeze (breeze being the operative word) would feel good on a nice short outdoor run.
Turned out it was only 77 degrees, but the sun was scorching, and I knew there was something I forgot to check before I left... the UV index. 7. oops... a bit high. It was only 5 when I burnt myself sunday. Luckily this time I remembered the sports sunscreen with ultra sweatproof protection! ha! yeah, righ.
I must have been running at a good pace (when I was running) because I did quite a bit of walking and thought the sun was going eat me alive. The wind gusts, when present, were horrible. I was dying out there and sweating like a ____________? .........feel free to fill in the blank as you wish.
