    No. I used to run ultras before lifting and never felt anything remotely close to a runners high. It is just zog schlock to get retards to buy running shoes.

    I get it after 20ish min of running. Well, I used to... heh
    I stopped running since I graduated from college (about a year), and now I'm just a blob. I miss running, but I'm too lazy nowadays.
    What you really need is some high beat music or whatever shit you like and begin running. No distractions and maintain a breathing rhythm.
    Breathing is really important. I, sometimes, would just stop because my breathing was too irregular.
    It took me a while to get the runner's high when I first got started

    The closest thing I experience to runner's high is when I'm extremely exhausted and done with running yet a really good song comes on and I feel a sudden rush of energy and just run like a maniac for 10 mins straight, I guess that is a runner's high.... but it's all dependent on the music really...

    Last time I experienced one was after a regatta in which I rowed two races. At the end of the day I was exhausted. I got this extremely euphoric high driving home when a good song came on. Never been able to replicate it with a drug.

          >get better running shoes that fit well, ones that don't have a lot of support
          >get socks that prevent chafing. Not cotton ones.
          >don't run on roads, they're at a slight angle and will fuck up your ankles silently.
          >do a warm up walk, not stretching, for at least 10 minutes before running
          >avoid doing things that give you shin splints, jumping jacks, running in place on your toes, etc.
          >if you do get shin splints, stop running for a few weeks or it will just persist
          >have rest days
          >don't do long runs every time you run, do longs runs once a week at most.

                You are a mistake, humanity and existence itself is pain incarnate. Millions of years of our evolution involved nothing but pain for what must’ve felt like an eternity to our ancestors. They simply grew numb to it, a lot died. Today I have indoor heating, a nice track, freshly butchered meat every day at the store, hot or cold water whenever I want, daily hot showers, I could go on and on. I can suffer for a few hours every day, hell I can suffer for a few weeks to. My ancestors, your ancestors have been through so much pain that when I run all I think about is them. The pain they must’ve had on a hunt for example. The feeling of literal starvation, and the motivating factor it must’ve been. I can fucking suffer for two god damn hours a day. It makes my meals taste better.

    I used to get it when I’d go on long runs with lots of altitude change, but the trick was to warm up for twenty minutes, rest for ten, and then start the longer, more intensive part of the run. Basically you’re just feeling a burn. I’ve been running casually for close to 5 years and only ever experienced it about a dozen times.

        Get a license. It’s not deer season yet, that starts in November. And I would get a bow if I were you. (Crossbow if you’re mentally/physically impaired) and wait for the season to start. Archery season is way longer and you’ll have more opportunities. I’ve hunted for 6 years and never once got a deer during rifle season every kill I’ve had had been with my bow. The laws in New Hampshire are pretty lax, finding a spot to hunt is pretty easy, just ask your buddies or soemtbjng , or check online for national parks. DO NOT HUNT out of season. The ward is the one dude that makes me shit my ducking pants. DO NOT Hunt without a licnese either. Seriously don’t ducking piss off the warden he is the last dude you want to piss off and has way too much power. Dude took an entire families guns 1 month ago cause they poached a deer. It was 1 teenager that poached and the whole house lost their guns.

    being able to run effortlessly for long distances is a good feeling. I don't consider that runner's high. For me, running a meaningful PR is like a high. Running can get very uncomfortable in a way that lifting never gets, especially during a race. Setting a goal might take years to reach and along the way you are dealing with the daily monotony, the weekly discomfort and ultimately the pain of race day. The feeling of reaching your goal time/PR after leaving your absolute everything on the track feels incredible.

    It's not so much runners high as much as it's just a feeling of happiness from exerting yourself. I remember one specific rugby practice in prep for a championship game, coach exhausted us so fucking much that we could barely walk by the end of the session but we all were fucking laughing at how tired we were and shit, literally felt just so fucking happy that we were that exhausted, kind of hard to explain.

    I ran cross country and track throughout most of high school and it is real but I’ve only experienced it a handful of times. You just feel totally weightless and like you could run forever. Really cool, I’d imagine people who train very long distances get it more often. Not something I’d expect with any regularity if you’re just running here and there for cardio.

    The runner's high that I used to get (before I had to stop because of my knees) was kind of like a caffeine buzz. I'm not talking about chugging Folgers and getting the jitters. I'm talking about a good Cappuccino on Saturday morning after a restful sleep. There's a feeling of warmth, energy, and well being. You can feel it in your whole body, and especially your spine. If you're paying attention it can be fairly intense. If you're not, you might not even notice it. The feeling started while I was running and lasted for hours - not unlike caffeine.

    I used to go trail running, about three or four miles a day maybe three times a week. I was not jogging - I was running. It was a very intense level of exertion. At my peak I could just barely run a six minute mile.

    I'm a pretty good mountain biker these days. One of the faster guys on my local trails, and with some success at racing in amateur categories. I've also been on a couple of long bikepacking trips. I definitely don't get a runner's high on a bike. I do get an adrenaline rush, which is similar, but not the same. It doesn't last, for one thing.
