I believe that cortizol levels rise as well which is all bad.

Having said that, what do you know about adrenaline? I know adrenaline is used by the public to describe the rush with extreme activities but I think most times we are mistaken. From my slightly faulty memory, adrenaline gives you the immediade jolt like when you get a real fright and it leaves you shaking in a very short period of time if you don’t have to use it to fight.

I think the high you described may be caused by something else so it could still be useful. I know endorphins are a powerful pain killer and are responsible for a high. I think they might be more useful than adrenaline.
