Apparently: runner’s high explained. Fat hormones? Leptin? Think it’s more complicated than that?
Not feeling that high myself today but not feeling that bad either considering. Only 19 miles completed first thing; about 12 miles with my father. Then another 11 miles before a little lunch stop, then a final 9 miles. Left hip was getting sore the last 4 miles so I played cautious. Still a 39 mile day so shouldn’t grumble [even about the strong wind – weather not bottom].
And HEY! I ‘only’ have 28 more miles to do tomorrow morning. That’s only just over half a circuit of Jersey/a Marathon. Hopefully the year will be done before brunch then? All will depend on how the hip feels tomorrow whether it is an ‘easy’ 5 hours running or a miserable 6 hours running? Unfortunately I have to pretty much do it all in one go. Not ideal. Fingers crossed I don’t take a dive at this late stage. Yes, sometimes a bit of luck is needed.
