A general science question

This is a question I just came to know about. I am not really aware of the answer, so anybody who wants to help is most welcome.

Our body temperature is about 37 degree centigrade. So, when the temperature of the atmosphere is 40 degree centigrade, we feel hot. Now suppose we do a lot of exercise and our body temperature is raised to 42 degree centigrade. We should feel cold, as heat flows from our body to the surrounding. But after doing exercise, we feel hot. Why is it so?

I know its a silly question, but any help will be of great value.
Thank you.
Its no actually classical mechanics.

During any exercise work is done and this work done is transformed into heat energy. So we will be feeling at least that amount of heat energy

I think this question has to do with biology because our body automatically regulates the temperature and never lets it rise beyond a certain limit (at least not to 42 degrees). If our temperature rose that high, blood's pH will decrease and it won't be able to function as a buffer.

In short, we don't rise to 42 degrees during exercise and that's why we feel hot.
