Runner’s high?

Leave a comment

I am in a GREAT mood today. Since I ran this morning I have just been so happy. I’m sure it has to do with the fact that my feet didn’t get fresh blisters, or my new running clothes, but I’m thinking its also this “runner’s high” I’ve heard about but had yet to experience.

Today is also one of those days when I’m just amazed by what my body can do. I ran 4 miles pretty easily today. I decided to wear shorts for my workout, and while it was somewhat uncomforable, I did notice that I do look a lot thinner than I did even three months ago. My legs are changing, though they are still pretty chunky.

I weighed in at the nutritionist’s office today and my official weight is 175.8, which is 7.6 pounds lighter than I was a month ago.

So I have a lot to be happy about but I think its the runner’s high. Maybe I’ll experience it again tomorrow!

Tomorrow is going to be my long run. I’m going out of town this weekend, hopefully, so I won’t be able to do it on Saturday. I’m shooting for 8 miles. When I got home from my workout today there was nothing that was intimidating me about my long run. But I know that can change. My head can play funny tricks on me. But I just need to avoid thinking about the 8 miles I need to run.
