    In cross country practice after an hour long run, everybody is drenched in sweat but I am barely glistening. Also, at the start of the season I am the same speed as everybody, but everybody keeps putting on speed but I never make any drastic improvements. I drink adequates amount of water and take protein, so what is the problem. I also get shin splints easily no matter what, I get new shoes, strenghtening exercise but I always get them. Is it my genetics telling me I should not be running?

    Maybe I am diabetic, and I don't know it?

    How hard are you pushing yourself?

    I usually can tell I've had a good workout when I'm dead tired at the end of it, and have the familiar cardio burning lung feeling. I can only get better by increasing the intensity.

    I don't sweat either, I am pretty sure I would drop from exhaustion before I was dripping with sweat.

    I got a treadmill for Christmas and I bounce back and forth between it and running outside. My shin splints are gone!

    When u say adequate how much do you mean? I thought I was the same way but then i started drinking more water and I started to sweat. The least ammount of water u really want to be drinking is a half gallon, a gallon is preferable, and yea ur gonna piss...a lot. I'd honestly try drinking more water b4 freaking out about genetics or diabetes. It sounds elementary and stupid as shit but you probably think you're drinking more than you really are. Kinda like those ppl that say they dont eat much but still seem to be mysteriously overweight.

    I was the same way when I ran cc in high-school. But now (3 years later) I sweat every time I run, no matter what the weather is like; and im faster (even though I'm heavier).. and I run alot.

    I didn't sweat in grade school, then I started lifting weights and doing hardcore cardio and I sweat like a bitch. :o Shit runs down my face and gets in my eyes :wtc:

    Perphaps it is genetic.
    I have a friend who was born in Syria and when he plays basketball with us for hours, he never or barely breaks a sweat ... Maybe some "races/groups" are better suited to survive/live in certain conditons .. but I really have no idea

    I'm bizarre with my sweats.. I'll sweat like crazy on leg day (walking lunges slaughter me), and when I do elliptical cardio. If I run, or any other day in the gym, I'll sweat, but not enough that I need to constantly wipe my face with a towel.

    When I work out, my head, face, and chest do not sweat. Unfortunately my ass and balls do.
