I wouldnt say I ever get a runners high. I usually struggle for the first couple of miles, and after that it all seems to come easier and I can pick up the pace without feeling it that much.

When I'm finished I'm ****in knackered though!

I only ever experienced runners high if I run on a treadmill at 9+ mph speed.
Usually after long runs I experience cramps and upset stomach.

Take some caffeine before you run for a high

i dont run 5 miles a day, i do about 3 or 4 miles 3x a week minimum and i do honestly get a runners high every time. only when i do it with my headphones on and at a slower pace. if im sprinting or going very fast i feel like nothing but ****. lol

never heard of this before :P...sounds interesting and i think i have felt it sometimes but at very low intensity. it must be great to feel it every time i run, i would have no problem running if that was the case xD.

I enjoy it once I am done as I feel rejuvenated and full of energy for the day. But what on earth is a runners high? Can someone please elaborate.

A runner's high occurs when one performs high intensity excerises such as running(but not limited to). This triggers one's brain to release massive amounts of hormone called endorphines (you body's natural pain killer per say) which produces a subtle feeling of euphoria.

I enjoy the runner's high, but not as much as actually getting high by smoking pot LOL, I have recently combined the runner's high with the high of marjuana and the effects are well worth.

I never had this runners high thing. Sometimes I feel a bit like i'm floating, maybe it is that. Never got a proper high except when smoking weed. That was some goood ****. Too much weed smoking ****s you up though and nowadays i only do it every three months with a bird, but then i drop a blue boy and screw her brains out so i dobnt get cabbaged.

Glad to see a fellow toker, but back to the runner's high, again the feeling is subtle, that sense of floating, wellness and relaxation after an intense workout is the high itself.

Th first 1-2 mile is the hardest part of my run, after that I normally start feeling quite good but I wouldn't call it a high.

you usually feel the SUBTLE high after the workout.
