Hey everyone. I know we have a lot of runners here, who have always seemed so upbeat that I thought I'd give it a try. Now I'm on this general lifestyle-changing journey, my perceptions of a lot of things have changed. So I've started running to see if I don't do it because I don't like it or I don't like it because I don't do it... hoping it's the latter!
Anyway, I'm working my way up to a 15km run that I did once when I was 9. It's hilly route around Sydney and it's in August this year, so I hope that's enough time to train, I can do 5km now.
So rambling aside, my question is... what is this famed 'runner's high'? What does it feel like? After a run I feel pretty tired, out of breath and my stomach/lower back hurts a bit. But I also feel stoked that I've done something I wouldn't have thought I could do just a few months ago. Is this that feeling? I always thought it was more... and that you could kind of drift out of yourself and really enjoy the run, not just the sense of achievement afterwards.
