"..get out, cruise around and boost endorphins"

This is a great film, showing what a relaxed attitude to training these people have, even though they have vastly different regimes.

The high point for me is at 25 mins when Anton Krupicka comments about his evening flat runs: "get out, cruise around and boost endorphins". Works for me too, although I'm a little way off 160mile weeks!

Running late in the day.

That good old runners high can be annoying at times. I enjoy running at the end of the day, when it's dark; wrapped up warm, with a head torch on, in blizzards, gales, and monsoons. But the high I get from the run keeps me awake for hours when I'd dearly love to be asleep, resting for a run the following day.

Shouldn't moan really should I, at least I'm able to get out there and do something, many can't.
