  • Running a mile every day..

    Sorry if this is a repeat question or one with an obvious answer..

    A few years ago I would run a mile every morning. It wasn't particularly challenging, but my body looked the best it ever has. Is it okay to run a mile every day or is that considered chronic cardio?

    Thanks in advance.

    That would not be chronic cardio, especially if you enjoy it.

        Just out of interest did you do this first thing in the morning before eating anything?

              Hey Adam, yeah that is exactly what I did. I would get up, put my shoes on, and get out the door. Afterwards I'd do some squats and pushups but nothing at all excessive.. maybe 20 each. I was never famished from the run and would just have a couple of eggs soon after.

                Sounds like an enjoyable way to start the day. If you have an option to do it, absolutely go for it!

                  I like that idea! Being a slow, middle-aged distance runner, I would never do less than 2.5 miles and considered that a bit of a cop-out run. But taking that much time was not possible many mornings. A mile is doable almost every morning. I may try that when the snow goes down and the mornings warm up a bit. Sounds so simple. I could even start my coffee, go for a run 15 minutes or so, and come back in to perfectly ready coffee.
