I try to run 2-3x a week, and not 2 days in a row, since I am trying to take it easy on my knees. :)

I go 3-4 times per week. On days I am not actually going for a run (wog), I still go out at the same time in the morning, but go for a long walk instead. Helps me get up for runs (wogs) in the mornings if I stick to my routine and get up at the same time everyday. Even weekends. Although, I have been known to go back to bed on the weekend, for a nap after my run & shower. emoticon

I run every other day and maybe once a week, after I've pushed myself, I give myself a two-day break.

I would like to run 3 times a week, there have been a few weeks when I managed that but over the winter here it has been too dark in the evenings so I have been going to the gym instead. I am looking forward to the lighter evenings and more running.

from 0 to 4 times a week
depends on weather, how much time I have and if I have blisters (I get them pretty fast - tried all kind of shoes but it seems the problem are my feet emoticon )

I agree with the others. It is VERY important to give yourself a day off in between runs, especially when first starting out. I run 3-4 times a week if I'm lucky and the weather isn't too hot. Looking forward to that fall weather! Good luck with your runs!emoticon

BAD IDEA! It is recommended to give day of rest after every run, VERY IMPORTANT!

It is not until you have been running for over a year before you can run multiple days and even then it is touch 'n go.

I have been running over a year, I get in runs 3 times a week if I'm lucky. Tried yesterday and today no luck. boo!

Smile .... it makes people wonder what you're up to ;-)

The fourth glass of wine is always a good idea before you do it and a really bad idea afterward! ;-)

It is far easier to MAKE time to exercise than it is to FIND time to exercise. You want results???? MAKE it happen.

Right now my running is very sporadic, which I don't like. But the summer heat kicks my butt and unless I get out at 5:30 in the morning, I can't fit it in. It's too hot the rest of the day. But once it cools off some I'll get back to 3 to 4 days a week. I do much better in fall, winter, and spring.

i try to do every other day, but really it ends up being 3 times a week... last week it was only 2 times.

when i first startred running, my legs/knees were a little sore the next day so every other day seemed to work well.. but lately i ahve noticed that my knees are not really sore anymore.. am debating trying to do everyday. or close to everyday anyway.. (i would porbably never be able to do every day.. ) and is every day even a good idea?
