  1. Hey all.

    Did another 6 mile run today followed by some gym tests.

    When I was running at first I felt a bit erratic, thinking thoughts like should I stop etc, but before I knew it I was in a rhythm and not really thinking how far left and things.

    Why is this?
    Does our body adjust or what, what is the stuff behind this and why does it take say a mile to get into?
     
  2. lots of reasons. muscles loosen fully, you get into a good breathing rythm, adrenaline gets going.

    its part of running usually. also, after a while your mind can switch off. if you were fully aware, you'd get bored shitless.

    things like logic and speech and such arent being used so get shut down. there are lots of things associated with raised heart rates, which will occur when running. all this takes time.
     
  3. Cheers fellas. I can now think theoretical bullsh!t while I run, untill I enter that godlike trance again :eek:
