    I run over 40km a week.

    It's tiring.

    I run 6-7 miles three times a week with weights on. Yes, it's tiring, but pleasantly tiring.

    I run at least 2 miles a day most of the time, sometimes I skip the runs and just take the dog for an extreamly long walk, but rather do the running. I don't usually use weights but I do look for the biggest hill I can find to run up. :)

    On a normal week I only run once a week and it is about 10 miles. Much easier to maintain than the make gains, I am too old for much gain.

    I also walk 6 or more miles 5 days a week.

    Once in awhile I get a wild hair and do something extreme to see if I still can.

    Back when I was a young pup I ran cross country but that was to help me increase my cardio for the wrestling season. I also used to be an endurance backpacker.

    I am almost 50 right now. It does seem a long time ago. I still have about 40 ribbons from back then.

    I'm with the Doctor on this, 'bout the only time I've run recently is when some bugger tried to steal my beer!

    I run 4 or 5 times a week, a couple easy 5 milers, a 3x2 mile at 10K pace with 2 miles warm up/cool down (8 miles total), sometimes 200m or 400m intervals and a 14 mile long run. Since May 2008, I've ran 3500 miles, I don't have stats from before then. I started running in 2006 and I go to as many local races as I can. Addicted to it, I am.

    Used to be right into it... but not so much nowadays. Still keep fit, just not via running. I do plan to get back into again in our next place, as it comes with a full private gym in the building as part of our body corporate... so I will be getting back into running, but on the machines... not so harsh on the knee's then, being pretty much why I stopped on road, as years in the military are not so kind to the knee's. Now I only run on running machines. I want to get back to around 30 - 40km a week once moved. I found running is just the best for overall fitness and physique.

    I usually run in a state park around here, going on the bike trails and some of them are quite steep/rough but it's really fun. I've started to do 5k runs and will probably work higher as time goes on.

    Never saw the point in running/jogging myself. They say it is healthy but I heard the guy that invented jogging died of a heart attack, go and figure :D
