What’s Your Mood After Running?
Not everyone looks forward to cardio day, but vigorous endurance exercise is supposed to release mood-enhancing endorphins. Do the after-effects of treadmill running put you in a good mood? According to a study published in the journal Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise females are more likely to feel the effects.
Researchers had 27 male and 26 female subjects run for 30 minutes on a treadmill. Although females were more likely to report anxiety and depression before exercise, they were also more likely to experience larger mood improvements afterward compared to males.
