Just fun speculation.  Maybe there's a connection.  I've never experienced it.  Nor has my B girlfriend.

I get a high from riding my bike! I can't run anymore due to a traumatic injury to my pelvis.

I also get a different type of high from tai chi type exercises, but it only lasts a few minutes, the high from bicycling lasts.

I used to run in high school, cross country and track mile and two mile.  Two mile for fun, my main run was the mile.

The qigong/tai chi exercise is very helpful to me though!

I get a high, but only if I dont eat before my workout. If I do eat something, then I am sluggish.

I know, kind of weird..

Same here. I guess our bodies were created to run after the pray, not after eating it lol!

:K)

Agreed. I miss my runners high when I dont get it.. it must be the whole idea of serotonin/dopamine release.

Never did.
But I did occasionally go into The Zone while playing tennis, back in the day. One would always be grateful for attaining it, where you'd envision the whole point playing out, where everything would "go into slow motion" and you'd just make it happen...

I think that's very different from a Runner's High, yes, but maybe that also says something about B versus O energy, for one thing...
