For those that run daily/multiple days a week, do you focus on distance or speed? And what do you do to recover?

Distance. I run every other day to allow for recovery. My goal is to run 4 miles the first day, 5 miles two days later, and a long run of 8-10 two days after that. I find that if I stick to this routine my times gradually improve. I also drink water with electrolytes after each run.

I use the Adidas running app and iPhone. My time for 8 miles is about 1 hour, 10 minutes. Just under 9 mins a mile. Age 63.

I don't run in the winter but when I am consistent it's based on distance not time. The only way I enjoy running is if I don't put pressure on myself to go a certain pace, just do what feels good on any given day but aim for the # miles I want

I definitely get gradually back into it and probably start with 3-4 miles at a time before trying anything longer. But in the winter time I am still working out 4-5 days a week (either indoor rowing, cycling, etc) so when I get back into running I'm in good shape and it's not a problem. Plus after a few months break I'm usually excited about the idea of running again.

Depends on your goals. I run 4-5 days/week. My goals are always improving my speed in longer distance events (half marathon is my fave). So I work towards endurance, but work in some speed work to gradually make me faster. I run a few miles 3 mornings each week. 1 of the days incorporates either speed work or hill training. So either I mix in “speed pickups” (like sprint for a distance or time then go back to normal, repeatedly) or run up and down a hill repeatedly. One evening/week I try to do something around 5-6 miles. On the weekend I do one longer run. Slower than all my weekly mileage. Minimum 10 miles, and gradually increase by a mile every week to build up my longer distance endurance. Last winter I hung out around 15-18 miles for a few months.

Play around a bit - at the distance you’re going you can do a bit of both. I hate killing myself running a shorter distance. I’d rather go out for a 2 hour long run that I’m not gasping for air the entire time than run for 20 minutes trying to die to run fast the whole time. Figure out what feels enjoyable for you and do a bit of both until you decide! You could try once/week to beat your fastest 2 or 3 mile run time or pace. Then on the day you aren’t trying to beat your own record try to go half a mile farther. Have fun with it, and find out what motivates you! For me, I’m never going to be the fastest but I love going out for 2 hours and beating my own distance milestones. Remember to build up your mileage slowly though. Don’t try to run 7 miles if your longest run in the past couple months was 3.

“If you can’t do sports, run. If you can’t run, run long”. I run long. 4 miles 2 days during the week and at least 6 on Saturday but more if I’m training for a 10 mile or half, which I’m not at the moment. I’m very slow, but it’s my therapy so I don’t care.

Slow is relative. Your slow is someone else’s fast! (But I have the same mentality - I’d rather run for a long time and enjoy it than kill myself running a mile).
