How far do you have to run before you actually start to feel that runner's high thing?
I'm starting to wonder if that's a total myth.. like blue balls. (that comment's gonna get some interesting search hits for sure)
I will say that I'm starting to develop the habit, and hopefully it's not just the bloom of a first crush that will fade away after a couple of months. Just shy of 7 miles so far this week and its only Wednesday. I should get a nice big push on my stats at the 5k this weekend. I've become a bit obsessive checking out my progress on the various challenges I've joined. What's fun too is that I can talk smack during the challenge and that just adds to the motivation. The fact that I stopped at the gym to run (aka walk/jog) after work at 6:15 is no small feat let me tell you. I am the Queen Slacktastic and even without the added support of my dear workout partner Yoly, I pumped out two miles before I headed home. I'm sure that the poor fool on the recumbant bike in front of me was going to turn around and ask if I was asthmatic.
All of this to be able to post such sweet smack talk. (I'm myriame1973, you can figure out my sister and Mr. Bird.)
I think I'll take a day off tomorrow and go out to lunch. A girl's gotta eat.
