Lesson Learned

Tuesday, August 27, 2013

Yesterday i was really really stressed and needed to go for a walk, run, jog or something. It was around noon and the temp was in the 90's very humid and full sun. I started off running, then jogging, then walking. I brought two bottles of water with me and already had them finished. I took a few quick breaks and sat in the shade for a minute. When i got home, i realized i had been out for 35 minutes. My face was beat red almost purple. I laid down on the couch and drank another bottle of water. When i sat up 30 min later, my face was still red (like i was sunburnt) and the couch was drenched with sweat. It took almost 1 hour to get the color in my face back to normal and i had a headache the rest of the day.
Lesson Learned: Find an alternative when it's that hot outside, or limit my time outside.

    Sometimes the humidity is worse than the heat.

Glad you are okay,

    You did the right thing afterwards . . . and sounds like you did work out your stress, but a little scary. Just be more careful next time, huh?
