No Sweat

It’s hot in New Orleans. The sun is just blazing. It’s 91ºF, according to weather.com. 56% relative humidity. Heat index of 100ºF.

But the amazing thing is, I just rode my bicycle from work to home — and didn’t break a sweat. Not even a fine sheen of perspiration. Nothing. I don’t feel overheated, either.

It was a twelve minute ride, maybe a bit longer, though I can make it in ten if I try. I rode slow, keeping my heart rate low, just to see if it made a difference. I guess it did. Normally I’d be mopping my face with a handkerchief right about now.
