Okay, so I've heard of the "runner's high" on many occasions, and I must admit I've felt it before, but not yesterday. This picture captures just how I felt after running 7 miles yesterday morning.....horrible. I looked horrible, I felt horrible. Why would anyone make their body do that for over an hour? It just seems a bit harsh to me. Obviously this criticism is coming from a non-runner. Yes, I am running, but no, I am not a "runner". It may be in the genes, as my wonderful friend/trainer Pam keeps telling me, but it's just not my cup of tea. I hate it. It seems pointless. It's boring. Yes, my body does get a workout (and my knees hurt for days after), but I've gotten a workout doing much more desirable things. I've even forced myself to do boot camp and got yelled at to work out and that was much more pleasurable.
Is there such a thing as a "runner's low"?
