Went out for an easy aerobic 2hrs 15mins this morning and I felt great. The pace was easy, the body in tune, and the miles just slid by. The pace fell into that sweet spot – cruising altitude. The first 10 were a breeze and mile 11 and mile 12 and mile 13 and then mile… euphoria. Without preamble, a flood of endorphins entered the bloodstream and the world became a very wonderful place. All fatigue and effort just melted away.
I came back down to earth around mile 14.5 but the effects lingered as I buzzed home. Wow, I like running.
18 miles @ 7:09 pace and then cooled down for .7 to finish out the time. Good run, 18.7 total. Still feeling good.
