    I know people that do, like, 5 miles a day.
    I can't imagine...
    Maybe if a dog was chasing me.
    But then maybe my ass would be dog food after a quarter mile...
    (or maybe 10 feet.)

    But to answer your question.. I suggest a book called "How To Run Real Good" by Omygod Thadogizgonnachewmyassoff.

    Twice is not enough. Thrice a week is the very bare minimun if you can afford the time.

    When I can, I go jogging in Central Park for 4 - 5 miles 2 or three times a week.
    When I'm in shape I do the whole round which is exactly 6 miles, but then I have to rest for a couple of days before I do it again.
    It's a great exercise for me, but unfortunately every now and then I stop doing it because I don't have much free time, and when I start again after a couple of months I have to take it easy and go for just 3 miles run until I get used to it again.
    But I would definitely recommend it to anybody.
    I never read a book though, I just do it !

    Get a hot athletic chick to run in front of you. (Naked if possible)

    You'll run at the same pace she is. [​IMG]

    When I was in the army I ran at least 10 miles a day at 5am every morning. That's with a Sergeant who is willing rip my heart out if I stopped. You just have to have a motivation. Motivate yourself and after the first 5 miles, it will get easier.

    Also if your lung capacity can take it, sing, it will help you get through the running. Some national propaganda music like the one we sing.
