Ive been running for a few months now. I was the original couch potato -hated exercise and was overweight -ate too much and use all the excuses going.
Im 42 btw.
Ive since lost 3 stone and enjoy the gym -also have a treadmill in the house. I love going for my runs (nothing far -10K is my best so far but I tend to do several 5ks during the week and a 10k at weekend).
Im booked to do my 1st race -the Gteat North 5K in 2 weeks. Not bothered really about time -just want to finish without looking like a bright red mess! Hence this thread! My issue is -I get so hot! I wear light clothes -shorts and vest -I drink plenty water before i go out and afterwards (not during). Im a really early riser and i go for runs at 6am. Im not looking forward to the race as it will be 10am -hotter than my usual 6am! After my run -I am boiling -I feel i can go on as I am not tired or out of breath -but I get so bloody hot! Kids joke i look like a ribena berry!
