I forgot to mention one aspect of my workout last night – my runner’s high DURING the workout. While I’ve had many runner’s highs over the years, I cannot recall ever having had one during a workout. After 6 miles or so, I was not my normal self. I wold find myself looking around, staring at the sky as if it I’d never seen the sky before and it was the most beautiful thing I’d ever seen. I was dazed, but not confused. Fun stuff. Before you try some long speed work, just remember that the first one’s always free… and then it’ll cost ya. ;-)
