why run when you can ?
This post was edited by Peabody22 23 months ago
Pleased to meet you; hope you guess my name.
Well, we've invented motorized transportation and I don't need to get away from cops or animals on a daily basis, so 0.
atleast 1. I used to run 3 or more everyday, but it wore my shoes, then my knees down. I finally got around to seeing the podiatrist today so I might pick it back up, but as good as it feels to run, and as addictive as it is, doing it excessively can just be a bit too taxing on the body. I might try biking or swimming instead.

I walk three miles uphill a day. Can I count that?
"It's just so hard," Greivis said. "It's my heart, my love. Maryland made me who I am."
Last night I had a really good steak with mashed potatos and creamed spinach and some blackened scallops for an appetizer. I also had a beer with it....well two. Then I went home and finished Storm of Swords and was like OMFGWTFBBQ
Per day or per decade?
For 10+ yrs ran 4.5 miles every 2 or 3 days and then a 6 to 10 mile run once a month. Then started mixing that up with hard biking and days I wasn't running or biking I'd try and do 30 mins on a stairmaster in the gym
Then blew my Achilles out followed by f'ing up my left knee bad. So 5 years ago joined a Masters Swim group where I go to swim practice/workouts 3 times a week (sometimes more, often times less). When I make it to the pool I do about 3200 meters each workout comprised of different strokes (medlies, different distances, sprinting and distance swimming). I highly recommend Masters swimming to anyone, who feels your body has had enough wear and tear from running. Plus you get the occasional hot body in a speedo in your lane!
Currently averaging about 4.25/day, but that will go up once I start training for BluesCruise, JFK, and Goofy
When I run- 3-6/run. That is probably 3 days a week though. Way more fun to play tennis, or workout at the gym.
*I had to give up booze for the last +/- 5 weeks. Despite the misery of that, no shocker that my running has improved dramatically.
0 since I got my ankle cyborgized. I roll every day, though.
When I was running I got up to 5 miles about 4 days a week, but being a big guy it gave me shinsplints pretty much constantly. It's fantastic exercise, but there are other things you can do that are probably a lot easier on the body.
Yeah I also have Achilles issues, partial rupture down the center of the tendon a few years back. But I try to get in about 9-10 miles per week on the treadmill and then mix in walking on the off days. I live in a rather hilly area do its tough to run on the road with the Achilles issue.
I used to not run at all, but my kid became mobile a couple weeks ago. Now I sprint all over the place, trying to keep the kid from dying.

WTF? Who does this?
Not a jack ass. I am a 4 star poster on RCMB - spartanfan48413
Usually 3-4 miles once or twice a week with a long run on the weekend (7-10 miles). Compliment that with hockey once a week and a one mile swim when I can.
They say you should walk at least half a mile everyday to keep your heart-rate up - I haven't done that regularly in almost 15 years, so I am at -2737.5 miles at this point.
No wonder the beer thread has been slacking!
2-3 miles per day during the week.
No. This is jtp's doing. He's kept me around for his bizarre HOF resume.
run about 3 miles 2 times per week. Add in basketball and softball every week.
Hope you're doing things to keep strengthening the other parts of that leg. I didn't and that led to my knee problem 2 yrs after my Achilles tear. Thought the biking and swimming I was doing was keeping my leg at the same strength as before but turned out otherwise.
2 yrs after knee surgery I was still hobbling around, couldn't swing golf club normally and stayed away from strong kicking in pool. 3 months ago I went to a trainer in the gym and she readily diagnosed my problems. Simple routines w/ ankle weights and the big roller and I'm a new man, PTL!
If I had followed her advice after my knee went bad I really don't think I would have been talked into that knee scope and wouldn't have needed it. Wish more orthos would reccomend rehab prior to deciding surgery.
Not enough to escape judgment.
3 - 4.5 miles a few times per week
since I got my itouch run more. grabbed songs off daughter's itunes (hadn't heard of most of them). just listening to the lyrics makes the run go quicker trying to figure out what they are saying. when I want change of pace listen to my old songs!
