Another running question

This might be a stupid question, but why do I feel so much more tired after running 2 or 4 miles as opposed to 6 miles? After my 6 mile runs, I don't feel out of breath or tired... I feel wide awake and great! But after my 2 or 4 mile runs, I feel exhausted. I'm running them at the same pace, I think. And at around mile 5.5, I even start sprinting the last half mile. Maybe it's because it takes me awhile to find my own "pace?" Just looking for some input.

Re: Another running question

If you haven't been running much, it may indeed take a while to find your pace. I've found that it takes me about 2 miles to warm up and get all the kinks out. Miles 3 and 4 are mush more comfortable than miles 1 and 2.

Re: Another running question

maybe it takes a bit longer to get that runners high, endorphin release as it were, than at lower milage, endorphins are triggored by extreme stress, and 4 miles is not stressful or painful enough to get that release. something to think about.
