Unreasonable Request

If you're following doctor's orders, then knock it down 25% - 50%.

Unseasonably warm weather can bring problems [wtop. 3.16.12]

Forecasters say it's going to be a gorgeous weekend and many may decide to enjoy the warm weather by going out for a jog or another form of exercise (e.g. Ultimate).

But with unseasonable warmth can come unseasonable problems. That's because people aren't used to the warmer weather.

"That's a set-up for danger," says Dr. Gary Little, medical director at George Washington University Hospital. "Whatever you're used to doing, scale it back, maybe do 50 to 75 percent of what you normally do."

Another word of caution: Don't forget to hydrate.
