Back to working out - sweating more when doing normal stuff?

I started running again about a month ago. (It sounds so awesome to "say" that out loud!). Anyway, I've noticed that during normal, everyday activities, I get hot and sweaty, where I didn't before.

I noticed it mostly when I'm cleaning the house. For example, it happened last night when I was vacuuming and picking up around the house - nothing too strenuous. I don't remember sweating like that when I cleaned the house before I started back to running. I wasn't winded, just sweaty and hot, like I had worked out lightly.

Of course, I get sweaty during my c25k runs, and no more than expected, but it's the everyday stuff that has me concerned. Maybe because my body is becoming more efficient??? (I have no idea here!)

Is this normal?

*missing having a ticker... I wanna go back!

Feb 2014 - According to DH, we're going back "next winter," whatever that means. Not specific enough for a ticker... yet!
making plans... so far looks like it'll be unlike either of our other trips. We're driving, we're not staying at WL, we're trying a moderate instead, we're cutting the Disney part shorter so we can go to the dark side for 2 days/nights!! We're SO excited to check out the Harry Potter areas!!!

I don't know if it's normal or not, but I have been experiencing the same thing. It's frustrating because I feel like I should be sweating less during normal activity as I get more fit.

Would be interesting to find out. Is it because maybe before you were dehyrdrated? Is your body more used to exercise, so it 'plans ahead' when it feels like you are getting ready to exercise when really it's just housework. Are you more energetic now in the chores so maybe you are working a bit more energetically even though you dont think so? wonder if anyone knows the real answer?

Back in 2005 when Lance was riding the Tour for the Discovery Channel team they did a lot of specials on the body and how it reacts to exercise and training. I remember in one of the episodes it talked about how trained athletes will start to sweat sooner because the body becomes more efficient at cooling itself. Evolutionarily speaking our bodies always strive for efficiency.

I noticed it in myself too back when I first started distance running.

What Firedancer said! I was told that the better shape you are in the more you sweat since your body is more adept at maintaining its proper temperature. If you are really concerned, call your doc.

I've read that too and I notice it myself. When I'm working out regularly, I sweat much more and much more quickly.
