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.

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.
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!

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?
