Endorphin run.

I have been having a slight cold since Saturday night, and now it's combined with pollen allergy symptoms. Very uncomfortable.

But it's not bad enough to change my running programme, so I went out for Gosho to fulfill today's distance in late morning. Did 4 laps with comfortable pace. I wasn't feeling good at the start, but by the final lap, I felt better and better. Is it because of endorphin that is said to be released while you are running at the certain pace?

◎Today's distance: 17.4km (at endorphinergic pace)

It might be.

Or maye it is just that the muscles are all warmed up and operating efficiently, with aerobic energy processing humming along nicely. Anyway, it is a nice feeling. Don't forget to look at p62-66 of men's Nonno!
