Endorphins

I would like to meet the idiot who said that exercise gives you a natural high.
Clearly this person has been smokin' something because I have recently dragged my fluffy arse back to the gym (Mr. Big has alot to do with this new found desire to sweat but that is another story). So, unlike my last adventure at the gym, I am not hiring a personal trainer and I am staying away from the weights for now. I have been setting the goal of just getting some fat burning cardio into my life. So my question to anyone who is an exercise lover and has had this so called endorphin "high" I would like to pose this question: "When does the high kick in?"
Last night I did 60 minutes total on three different machines (recumbent bike, treadmill and eliptical trainer) and did not feel any sense of euphoria or joy. I felt sweaty and tired and just couldn't wait for the hour to end.

So all you exercise lovers, please, when does this begin to feel good?

I'm too tired to exercise but I can tell you that I have NEVER felt that exercise high that my sister raves about, must be reserved for the slightly insane!
