Hello.

Why do I feel great and relaxed after a run but when I go for a walk (no matter how long) I do not feel the same results?

Because your body releases endorphins during running that it does not during walking. These endorphins are what makes you feel good. This can also be the “runners high” that you hear some people talk about.
