    Is there such a thing as doing too much running? I’ve typically been running at least 2 miles a day on pavment or tredmill depending on the weather, shouldn’t you be running each day? some people tell me that it’s great-its healthy! other tell me i’m over doing it.

    My friend Teresa O’toole runs 6 miles a day and she’s in fantastic shape. Now I doubt running that much is at all necessary, but I figure as long as you’re not suffering from shin splints all the time, running is great (though I hate it myself lol)

    I run alot as well- or else i gets jiggly 😉 ; you might want to just pay attention to how your body is feeling. Sometimes my lower back hurts; and your shins can feel sore. I am not to sure if there is such thing as too much- everyone is different. But I actually talked to a triathelite who said pay attention to form, where you are comfty, and also run according to your heartrate to make sure you are benefitting from your run. Also, make sure you invest in good running shoes- i cant run on a treadmill- only outside, they matter alot. Hope any of this helps!

    There is such a thing as too much running.

    Case in point: that guy who ran a marathon every day in each U.S. State and D.C.

    just remember if you are running and or excersising a lot, protien and water help your body recover the quickest, and remember to listen to your body, if you are dragging, maybe make it a light day.

    I have to totally disagree. Running is key!!! It is very necessary. I personally hated running and had to start when I broke my hand. It has helped a tun. It affects me mainly for recovery time inbetween rounds. I do some days with a nice easy jog for about 2-3 miles. The last 1/2 mile or so I push untill I can hardly go anymore. I also do hill sprints and stairs as well. I have a lot of fights and running definatly helps! Like they say, listen to your body but also push your self and take a little pain! Thats the name of the game.

    Good for you! Marathons are a great way to meet other poeple to run with too. Ive made some great freinds at marathons. Lisa has a good structure, stairs are good to try out on days you may not be doing distance. I do my running by time, regardless of the area. I figure 20 min will give you two miles; doing 40 min. ..so forth.

    Oh your totally right Ashley! I took it as “running in general wasn’t necessary” apposed to running 6 miles may not be necessary. My bad :). I re-read it and what you said makes total sence.
