Running

Is it better or worse to run a few hours one day or two days a week rather than doing a little everyday?

  • I would think it would be better to spread it out throughout the week...but I honestly don't know for sure

  • You shouldn't run every single day back to back. Your legs need a break to prevent injury.

  • If you've done the training to be able to run a few hours at one time, then doing a long run a few times a week would be fine. If you're not used to running that much, combine it with a run/ walk to avoid injury.
