comment Dumbbell weight training for distance running
Ive had some success from dumbbell squats, snatches and swings. Use a fairly heavy weight such that you can do 4-5 sets of ~5 reps

Its true - i had shin splints for ages, and always tried training my shins and calfs but the actual problem was my hips' strength

Of course you will have those effects while you're under the influence... not very helpful to be honest

comment What are some signs of overtraining?
For me, its mental sluggishness, tiredness and general lack of energy. When it hits, you'll know about it trust me. But if you feel good with your current programme, there's no need to take more rest.

comment What is a “Runners High”?
The body rewards positive behaviour (in the case of running, because we used to run to hunt food) by releasing endorphins to try to encourage us to repeat such behaviour. Individuals to whom this doesnt happen are eventually bred out of the species by those to whom it does (and are more likely to reproduce as a result).
