I dunno how to explain it but it makes me feel awesome. And I usual;y kick it up a notch at that point.
Like today. Today was the best workout I've had in forever and the rush was there.
Yup! That's it! I had it yesterday during my run-- and as soon as I feel it, I know I'm good to go!
I used to feel something kind of like that pretty predictably exactly fifteen minutes into my swim... but when I run it's more noticeable (probably because I'm in more pain to start out with, LOL)
The other stuff-- the relaxed happy stuff after a workout, I feel that too, but that's not what I'm talking about.
