  1. It appears rolling yourself in baby powder before the run did the trick! No sweat is kind of weird though.

  2. i think i've been sweating for two people; perhaps your sweat has invaded my body?

    ReplyDelete
  3. That's crazy talk, I sweated just listening to the conditions you ran in. Are you hydrated enough (or at all)?

    ReplyDelete
  4. and of course by "listening" I meant reading.

  5. Hmmmmmm? Hydration maybe? Lord knows I have been sweating enough for two so maybe I have taken all your sweat!

  7. I'm not a big sweater myself.. it has to be really humid!!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Oh no...that can't be "good"...can it? Although I'd like to sweat less than I do.

    ReplyDelete
  9. You can have my sweat. I think I sweat enough for the both of us!

  10. my sweating abilities are very inconsistent. if you really wanna sweat, go for a swim first, that always makes me sweat like a banchee

    ReplyDelete
  11. you can have my sweat. i certainly have been creating my fair share of it this spring!

  12. What is up with that?! You must be overheating like crazy! At least you don't stink...

  14. I sweat for 3, and I share:)
    But seriously, this is NOT GOOD. I would look into it!

    ReplyDelete
  15. The thing about summer is that I dont sweat too much while running but when I am done its like my pores become mini water falls! lol

    ReplyDelete
  16. I was going to point out hydration, or lack thereof, as well. What does your doctor say?
    You could always try panting ;O)

    ReplyDelete
  17. What? No sweat? How? Just reading the numbers 89 made me totally break out in a cold one.

    ReplyDelete
  18. While in some ways, I would be completely jealous of a nonsweating sister, that can't be good.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh man. I'm jealous :P I ran for an hour in about.... 60ish F... yesterday morning and I was DRIPPING :P

    ReplyDelete
  20. So if I had to guess, I'd say perhaps it's because the humidity is low? Puzzling!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Soo strange! I sweat so much in hot and humid temperatures. Were you hydrated enough?

    ReplyDelete
  22. No worries. I'm doing your sweating for you.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Hey, me either!! 'Cept I didn't run for mega miles in 89 degrees - mine's cuz I've been a super fat slug!

    ReplyDelete
  24. As someone who shared a van with you for 30+ hours, I can say that I actually appreciate your lack of sweating. Although, I suppose I'm being selfish. I do understand your need to cool off during runs.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Dr. Google is clearly failing you here. Presumably so is Dr. Real Doctor. Who is left to turn to?
    But, you're married, shouldn't this be something your hubs can fix??

    Hmmm, so while there's no relief for your health condition, have you ever considering using the real degrees symbol for temperature?
    On a normal keyboard, it is supposedly ALT+248 (on the NUMBER pad).

    ReplyDelete
  26. Well, it could be that you were dehydrated from the beginning. If there is no fluids to cool down your body there's of course no sweat. But you want to keep a close eye on it, over heating can be be very dangerous.

    Just in case you lost it somewhere you'd better keep looking for it while doing future runs.

  27. Hey Lindsay, this post can write myself... Last training day was hell here in Spain... Sun kill me! and it's only the summer time beginning ;)

    Be carefull !

  28. Drink more...water that is!

    ReplyDelete
  29. That's a little odd....maybe you are such a well oiled machine you don't need to sweat?!

    ReplyDelete
  30. 45% humidity is lower than what you, and I, typically have, but at 89, I would think you should be sweating buckets. I know I am!

    Yesterday, in yoga class, my shirt was wet after class. Everyone else ended the class looking great. urgh!

    be careful! hydrate, and get "checked out"

    ReplyDelete
  31. I am a heavy sweater (gross)..... if it's not usual for you then get more fluids in and some electrolytes!!!!

    Take care out there!

    ReplyDelete
  32. That is so weird! I'm disgusting when I get back from running. How do you feel when you run since your body probably can't cool you down?

    ReplyDelete
  33. Seriously? No sweating. You lie.

    If you're not lying then you need to teach me how to teach my body not to sweat.

    ReplyDelete
  34. LOL! You can have some of mine. I think yesterday I started sweating when I was opening my car door....

    ReplyDelete
  35. Love it. Couple of weeks and it will all seem normal, right?

    ReplyDelete
  36. I don't know anything about it, but I've heard sweating is better. I don't seat much... nothing to do.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I sweat buckets. You are more than welcome to have some of mine (I know, I know, that sounds gross!) but I really do sweat buckets. Your sweating will pick up soon, I'm sure. :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. What is up with your sweat YO?! Seriously check that out. You might find some answers on the circle of mom's website. ha ha.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Soo..are you sad that you don't sweat anymore? Technically sweating is a good thing, but pretty annoying (for me, at least). I'm sure once the summer heat arrives, it'll happen more easily :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. I once heard that bodies have their own way of cooling themselves.. Some better than others..
    Are you on any new medicine though? My little boy is and it stops him from sweating which is just miserable for him!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Yikes, I'm sorry that you're still having this problem. Like many others, I wish I could give you some of my sweat, I definitely have more than my fair share.
