(It is currently a few degrees above freezing when I cycle to work)
  1. Help! It is freezing cold and I can see my breath in the air! Put on coat, gloves, hat-with-earflaps, and still feel shivery!
  2. Hmm, I seem to be warming up, better take the coat off at the next traffic lights.
  3. My hands are a bit hot, perhaps I should take my gloves off.
  4. Ow! My hands are too cold! Put the gloves back on again.
  5. My head's a bit warm, the hat can come off.
  6. My hands are sweaty! Take the gloves off again.
  7. Still cold, but my hands are ok. 
  8. Actually my hands are strangely warm.
  9. Help! I am suddenly Boiling Hot all over and there isn't anything else I can decently (or easily) take off!
  10. Slow down for remaining journey in hopes of cooling down before arrival.
I have stopped even bothering with the coat, and I am doing much better on the days when I wear a long-sleeved running top for the commute and change into something more work-appropriate on arrival.  Shivery at first, but keeps stages 9-10 fairly minimal.  I need to find better gloves.  (Thinner? Easier to remove?  Maybe I need lightweight mittens or something.)

I didn't use to overheat so much.  I'm hoping it'll pass as I regain fitness, or cycling to work in summer will be no fun.

Even with the overheating, I'm kind of impressed you're managing both the return to work and a cycle commute.

Not perhaps the word I would have chosen!

This describes every cycle journey I've made! Stage 9 always used to arrive while waiting at a junction after cycling against the wind for 2 miles.

If you don't normally have hot and cold flushes and have had more than one, it might be worth talking to your cancer nurse about chemotherapy and its impact on your hormonal cycle.

If it's just the once, I wouldn't get that worried especially as you were exercising at the time.

A long time ago, I spent some time working out number-of-layers per temperature band (as measured at the CL), and use that to determine how many layers to put on in the morning (this sometimes means I start out a bit cold and then warm up, but I find that's better than having to stop and adjust clothing later). The relevant set of figures for me is here.
