POLL: How many times per week do you run? (Read 166 times)


    Normally 6.  In the winter, I have to fight to get that 6th day.  In the nice weather, I have to force myself to take the day of rest that I know I need.

      I love doing doubles, but I have added cycling to my day so I have substituted riding for running doubles. Except I ride more than I would double, but it works for me.


        When healthy 11 - 12 times per week.

        Laundry once a week. (I'm not disgusting, I have a lot of running clothes Wink).

        Slow and steady never wins anything.

          I'd like to run 5 times a week. But sometimes I have problems so I can't.

              usually 6. never thought that would be the case but it works well when you finally learn to run easy most days and do a couple of quality workouts when in training.

                  5 on the weeks when my massage schedule is a little fuller and I'm a little more tired and need an extra day off.

                  6 on the weeks when I have extra energy and only need one day off.


                    All of them.  I like to at least get 7 straight days in before a rest day.  I'm on my 12th straight day now and will take a rest day when it feels right.


                    When I get serious about racing this fall, I'll likely take more rest days, maybe one a week.  For now I'm just out there free-form doing 50mpw and loving it.

                          5.8 days a week is my average since i've been keeping a log. I know that might not make sense but sometimes averages don't (like the average family in the US having 2.7 kids)



                              5, preferrably 6

                                I do this.  Take one rest day every other week or as needed.


                                As to the laundry, I cannot reuse anything since the stuff is all smelly, wet, and dripping by the time I am done.  I do have a lot of clothes too.Big grin
