    For about three weeks I've been hitting the treadmill consistently on an interval program to build up my speed/endurance. With the program they have it set for runs every other day. I am pretty much spent at the end of the run but feel great after about an hour so I've been doing it every day (same workout two days in a row before doing the next) and taking off at the end of six days for a one day break.

    I am happy with my pretty rapid improvement but wonder if I am hurting myself by not taking every other day off.

    :eek:

    Everyone is different.....BTW treadmillz are for Pussies....go outside.

    I was doing at least 3 5Ks a week at first....Now I've cut back to one a week

    They say 1 good half hour of running a week is as beneficial as people who run every day...But who knows
