What days do you run?

I try and run 4 days a week - Sat and Sun as they are non-work days and I can run in day light and also figure if I do these I'm 2/3 of the way there for the week.

Then I try and run Tues and Thurs - so mostly do 4 runs a week.

Do you have a set routine or do you run more ad-hoc?

I do Monday, Wednesday and Fridays. I might do more when I'm a bit better and the weather is better.

I usually do Monday, Wednesday and Friday, though I am thinking of braving the park tomorrow for a very slow one so I should be ok to push on with the program on Monday in the gym, and hopefully will be able to start incorporating outside running into my routine.

I run Tuesday and Thursday and then do a Parkrun on Saturday, though suffering with a cold at the moment so haven't run for two weeks :-( can't wait for running club on Tuesday :-) I could never run two days without a rest I think my legs would hurt to much!

I'm another Mon, Wed, Fri person with the odd Parkrun added onto the Saturday. It fits in best with my other commitments plus I would possibly let things slip if I didn't have a routine.

I too run on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. That leaves the weekend to do hillwalking and cycling with hubby.

Monday, Weds and Friday for me too.

Most running clubs run Tues and Thurs so I like to run these days as I tend to see more runners that way which I find encouraging plus I can fool people into thinking I belong to a club myself!! :D :p ;) Then my other run is either Sat or Sun.

It is good to have a routine but at the same time need to be flexible due to extenuating circumstances. If I don't get my three runs in though I do feel miserable :(

At the moment I am running: Sunday am, Tuesday evening and Thursday evening and am finding that suits really well.

I've just been running every other day, irrespective of which day it ends up on. Though I might vary it now I've graduated. I like getting out to run on at least one weekend day.
