Try the hills at the end of your three mile them it becomes euphoric for me at least.

2015-08-31T21:23:22.528-07:00

I do High Intensity 30 minute stationary bike workouts. At 23 minutes I typically have significantly lower heart rate and easier breathing but never slow down. When I get this high, I can casually converse or sing whereas before breaking through it is impossible. Is this typical?

I've only experienced runner's high once or twice in the past year, but I feel like my 'high' is different from yours! I just get a sudden burst of energy in my short races and I feel like I can run mile on end without dying. I wonder if it's just a different, less intense runner's high?

If you really want to trip out, check out the research at KUMC that showed that anandamide is a key communicator between a mother and embryo, and is one of the first chemical communications a mother delivers.

2011-09-21T15:41:25.589-07:00

I like your plan, more chocolate and more running jibes well with me!!! Sadly I have few lbs to lose right now so better leave the choc out for a while.

I've experienced runners high a few times and sometimes it's quite mild (could just be a second wind I guess, but is that also a runners high?) and sometimes it's euphoric.

Interesting to read some possible science behind it all.

2011-05-22T12:34:47.623-07:00

I found your blog post on the Runner's High just after I'd finished writing one myself. Yours in so well informed, thank you. All I could do is to say how it makes me feel and why running and cycling has made all the difference for me. However, I can really identify with what you say.

In fact it's the difference between quitting my job in criminal justice and keeping it.

You're very welcome to take a look.

Scott, thanks again.

Doug.

Hey Scott. I'm "training" some friends of mine and one just experienced the runner's high and asked me about it. I was doing a little research and came across your blog. THE BEST BLOG EVER! Awesome article my friend. Thanks.

Are you running the Eugene marathon in May?

2011-02-21T09:52:04.075-08:00

Hi there Scott. I too saw about the article in the NY Times that you've picked up on. I blog about sport psychology in relation to running and athletics and have been researching runners high for the past 3 years.
Based on this I wrote a response on endorphin vs cannbinoid hypothesis http://stuartholliday.blogspot.com/2011/02/what-happens-to-your-brain-during.html

I'm hoping to get a response from the professor behind the most convincing endorphin research and update what I've put previously.
Great blog!

this is a fantastic topic to bring up with people who are sedentary and maybe use drugs to inhibit their activities.... and the connection is logically profound...

2010-07-21T07:18:28.078-07:00

That was a great read. The next time my wife complains I'm running too long/too often I can tell her it's not my fault, I'm addicted to anandamide. Sooner or later someone will figure out how to make it in a pill form and we'll have a bunch of stoners sitting around with a runner's high.

2010-04-23T10:27:19.997-07:00

Really great post. Interesting how the endurance high seems to require progressively higher dosages as one gets fitter.

Also, in my own subjective experience (through cycling), I get the high when I exercise at a fast aerobic pace, but not so much when I'm going at 'sub-puke' pace -- a case of stress hormones vs feel-good hormones maybe?

Great blog!

2010-03-29T14:08:17.731-07:00

OMG, you totally know what I'm talking about! People think I'm weird but that high you get after running is not the same as strength training or other aerobic activity (for me at least). I can only achieve that high after I've ran 11 or more miles. Thank for blogging this:)

I seem to get a runners high around the 6th mile of a 9 mile race. Music and spectators always help too. I love the feeling!!

2008-09-25T22:20:00.000-07:00

The 2004 study apparently does not show the cognitive effects of runners high due to anandamide.

A study conducted about 6 months ago in Germany finally confirmed the Runner's High - here's an article on it. http://www.nytimes.com/2008/03/27/health/nutrition/27best.html

2008-07-10T20:54:00.000-07:00

Hello there! I'm definitely a fan of your blog site. Have you ever read "Ultramarathon Man" by Dean Karnaze?
That's probably a stupid question.
Anyways, I'm currently in the process of establishing my own running blog website. If you have the time hopefully you could check it out and possibly provide me with a few pointers. Keep running!

If you're in DC I will be running the Marine Corp Marathon on October 26th. Take care!

2008-06-26T10:42:00.000-07:00

I wish my runner's high would sustain itself. The only time i can get one is after running for a few miles I sprint balls out. But during my sprint my body is weightless and the run is effortless (which is nice after working hard) However, this feeling usually doesn't last past my sprints :( Nevertheless, it's a really cool feeling!

2008-05-17T17:08:00.000-07:00

lol I used to be a huge pothead and recently quit (as a matter of fact I got the link to this article from a pot website lol). I also like to work out, and reading about this is almost making me want to become a runner lol. I mostly lift weights though, I absolutely hate running... I jog for 20 minutes for cardio and I can barely stand that, I couldn't imagine going for 90 minutes. Now that I read this I'm wondering if maybe I should ditch the weightlifting and start training to become a distance runner...

2008-05-13T16:55:00.000-07:00

I haven't been running very long but I still get the high. I used to run casually about 5 years ago and found it very addictive. I'd dream about it constantly. I find I get the high as long as I've gone past the burn. Can't wait to see what happens the further I get. I'm already hooked at mile 5!

2008-04-14T09:47:00.000-07:00

The highs i experience are indoors in group exercise classes, specifically step. They happen as soon as I am warmed up and are influenced by the music and choreography. They don't happen as predictably as some of the runners indicate, but they can occur multiple times in the same session and have made me a (happy) exercise addict.

2008-04-09T13:40:00.000-07:00

Here's another interesting breakthrough about anandamide - turns out anandamide levels can predict a miscarriage with 94% accuracy. No long runs for pregnant women!

This is totally something that drugs cannot replicate. Great post.
