        Runs like a dj mixing songs while wearing festive outfits.

          For general fitness I'd follow typical guidelines of 40+min 3-4 times per week.  For cardio/aerobic fitness it is more about time than mileage.  As for 'types of runs' it's really about alternating intensity with easy/recovery.  Do some 'harder/faster' runs, either shorter/faster runs or intervals.  Do easy runs on the days in between the harder runs.

           

          General fitness is pretty simple.  It's when you start wanting to set PRs that thing get a bit more challenging.

          So, I did a thing.
