Working Up a Sweat 挥洒汗水向前跑

Dialogue A
Fred and Kelly are driving to the countryside.
Fred: Thanks for giving me a ride to meet up with the running club.
Kelly: No sweat. I just feel bad that the air conditioning in my car doesn't work.
Fred: Don't sweat it. I like riding around with the windows open.
Kelly: You'll likely change your mind when you start sweating like a pig, though.
Fred: It's fine. How far will the run be today?
Kelly: According to the schedule, we're doing 12 kilometers.
Fred: That shouldn't be too bad.
Kelly: I'm glad you feel that way, but I'm not looking forward to it.

Dialogue B
Fred: Why not? I thought you'd be excited.
Kelly: I had a terrible dream last night and woke up in a cold sweat.
Fred: I guess you didn't get much sleep after that.
Kelly: Nope. So I'll probably be dragging my feet today.
Fred: I can stay back and run with you.
Kelly: You're so sweet, but you should try to improve on your time.
Fred: I don't really care about that. I just like running because I can easily work up a sweat.
Kelly: Well, with the hot weather today, we'll all be sweating in no time.

Dialogue A
佛莱德和凯莉正开车去郊外。
佛莱德:谢谢妳让我搭便车去和路跑俱乐部的人会合。
凯 莉:小事一桩。只是很不好意思我车子的冷气坏了。
佛莱德:别担心。我喜欢开着车窗兜风。
凯 莉:不过等你汗流浃背的时候,你很可能就会改变心意了。
佛莱德:没关系啦。今天要跑多远啊?
凯 莉:根据表定计划,我们要跑十二公里。
佛莱德:那应该还不算太糟啦。
凯 莉:我很高兴你那么想,但我可不太期待。

Dialogue B
佛莱德:为什么?我以为妳会很兴奋。
凯 莉:我昨晚做了一个恶梦,醒来时冒了一身冷汗。
佛莱德:我猜妳后来也没睡多久吧。
凯 莉:对啊。所以我今天很可能会跑得很慢。
佛莱德:我可以留在后面陪妳一起跑。
凯 莉:你真贴心,不过你应该试着跑出更好的时间。
佛莱德:我不是很在乎那个啦。我喜欢跑步只是因为我可以很容易就出大汗。
凯 莉:嗯,今天那么热,我们马上就会跑得满身汗了。
