What's the healthiest running schedule? (Read 311 times)


    Run 4 miles twice a week and 2 miles once a week


    Run 2 mile 5 times a week

    In this scenero, I'd pick 4 miles twice a week and 2 miles once a week.  In fact I might suggest two 3 miles  and a 4 mile?


    Are you trying not to run more than 10 miles a week?  Whatever you pick is better than no miles a week.  I've heard of ultra runners who only run races as their training-  two 50ks races and a 50m to prepare for a 100m, situation.   Perhaps you should run 10 miles once a week?  I wouldn't suggest it but it could be done.
