I’ve never like having anything on my head while running or working out; actually this was big issue when I was serving in the SEABEES. When things got hot it would tend to remove my cover which is frowned on while on bases on US Soil.
Since I have been running long distances the amount of perspiration from my head has increased, it seems, ten fold. This perspiration tends to be really, I mean REALLY, salty and when it decides to run into my eyes the salt burns so much that its hard to see though my active blinking and rubbing. It’s really not so bad when I’m running most times the cool air and San Diego beach breeze keeps the majority at bay; its when its hot, still, and humid or I have to stop for whatever reason and the sweat glands go into overdrive it gets hard to control.
Wicking it away using my fingers is my normal process for keeping it from rolling into my eyes; I’ve not yet achieved running speeds that would cause the beads of sweat to peal off my face such as the rain does on a cars windshield.
So I’ve been considering wearing something, something I hope that doesn’t make me look like and 80’s version of Oliva Newton-John. What ‘IT’ is i’m not sure yet; Has anyone invented invisaband sweatband yet?
