Last night I got my first run in after a week's hiatus, and it felt good.
However, it was a hot one!
See, the blessedly cooler months of November-March abruptly come to a hault in April, and while I'm sure the reality is that the weather gradually warms up in the course of March, it always seems like one day, over night in April, it goes from cooler, drier weather to hot, humid weather. And suddenly, it's summer.
Granted, it's not August out there yet, so it's not that kind of heat, but it is distinctly different from the pleasant weather we've enjoyed since Christmas; add to that the factor that I'm running in a shirt now (I just don't feel comfortable having the belly out there in the open), and I was a sweaty monkey when I returned home last night from my 3 miler.
So this is going to shift running in two ways: One, it's gonna have to happen in the late evening or early morning (ha!) now; and two, I need to find some better kind of tops to run in. Cotton t-shirts will no longer suffice.
