Runners high

A friend recently told me about this. I've been running almost every day for a few weeks now, can't say its happened to me. Any experiences?

Looked it up on wiki, apparently caused by a cannabanoid called anadamide, interesting

Yes, it's the "endorphins" that give that runner's high. How do you feel after you run? I can't say it always will happen, but there are times when I just feel so powerful after I run. I always get a lot of energy too
I have been running for 15 years now and I am addicted!

It's happened to me before, but only on long runs, like 8+ miles. I get to a point where I feel like I could run forever, and where I can increase my pace a lot. It's kinda weird, I eventually have to make myself stop because I would be wicked sore and wicked tired later if I just kept going. It's not like euphoric or anything, but still nice.

Also, to Nicole44, since you said your feet and ankles hurt, what part of your foot is hitting the the ground first? I had a huge problem with my ankles when I started running cross country in HS (I was used to soccer running, which is different than distance running) but my coach said to land on my heel and kinda roll toward to the front of my foot...I dunno if that makes sense but it worked and felt better Before that I was landing on the side of my foot/toes and that is apparently only supposed to be done when sprinting or running up a hill so that's why it hurt when I tried to run far.

I also feel like I can run forever when I do my long runs 10k /6 miles plus.I do get runners low like I have had the last 2 weeks-I ran 1 time in 2 weeks, the only reason I ran last sunday was because I signed up for a 10k/6mile run

I get runner's high on my bike...does that count? After about 10 miles, my body relaxes and I can peddle for another 50 miles. I'm riding about 100 miles on weekends.

when I was starting to run, I was just miserable. But the more I got into a groove, after a good day and I would feel really awesome AFTER the run. I think that's it. It only happened a few times, but it was great when I felt it.

Want runners high? Try doing 10 minutes of HIIT (sprint workouts -- 2 minutes at 7, 1 minute at 11, 2 minutes at 7, 1 minute at 11.5, 2 minutes at 7, 1 minute at 12). After you get off the tredemele you feel high out of your mind.
