I read an article about “runners-high” and I now know why you people are running, I’m already planning where to go get todays fix… =)

“…another widely publicized effect of endorphin production is the so-called “runner’s high“, which is said to occur when strenuous exercise takes a person over a threshold that activates endorphin production. Endorphins are released during long, continuous workouts, when the level of intensity is between moderate and high, and breathing is difficult. This also corresponds with the time that muscles use up their stored glycogen…” (Source: Wikipedia)

This day has been rather uneventful, woke up, took a shower, ate food, drank coffee, had an ice-cream, that is about where I am now… feeling a bit stiff and numb from yesterdays trip =)

Oh yes, I got a letter from KELA (the social insurance institution of Finland), the people that have paid me some money while I was studying, saying that they want money back for June. It’s because the diplomas was written June 12th and they need 18 days in a month to pay for the month… Our school actually ended on July 4th, but I don’t think I have a single paper saying that. So I probably have to pay them back the money I got for the month because of a misunderstanding about 6 days… *sigh*
