Hot After Long Sunday Run

Can anyone help me with a minor problem.

Sometimes after my long Sunday run I find that I can be subject to sweating and high tempatures hours after the run. This normally occurs if the run has either been longer or faster than usual and normally happens when I do anything even remotely physical, like the washing up for example ! This is obviously not a major problem just an irritant.

I'm the opposite - as soon as I cool down (i.e. about 20 mins after my shower) I get really cold, and I usually end up with the heating on full blast and wearing a fleece jacket for a couple of hours. I tend to overheat when I'm running; hats and gloves come off after about a mile even in freezing weather, so I've always assumed that my body just isn't too good at regulating temperature. I do find that I can feel my heartbeat increasing very quickly for minimal efforts after a hard run though.

get the wife to do the washing up is my answer

That sounds like a really excellent idea.

Thank you Suzi Q.

I find that after a run a good way to stop myself sweating for hours after is to turn the water temperature to cool at the end of a shower. I think this closes all the skins pores and normally has the desired effect.

thats presuming you have a wife of course, if not you'll have to carry on doing the washing up yourself :-)

Susi Q,

I don't have a wife but the girlfriend is a hot little number :-)

Mr Silly,

Thank you, I will give that a try.

if your girlfriend is a hot little number then maybe thats why your feeling hot. Is she at home waiting for you when you get back from your runs?

Susi Q,

Yes she is and come to think of it the more I see of her the hotter I get. Maybe Mr Silly's shower idea can help with this ?
