I'm not sure, I can't remember, haha! But I normally run six days a week. I was doing 5 miles a day but I felt like it was too much. Not physically speaking but I'd sometimes find myself getting bored during the run and it was taking up a bit too much time out of the day for me.Ok, good. Did you say six days a week earlier? 2 miles a day? That's solid.
When I got injured I started reading about running a bit and started to think about running in terms of weekly mileage, rather than daily, 15 to 20 miles a week being about the ideal, as I see it. That means I can use a couple of different routes and distances thoughout the week to keep boredam at bay. I also think the variety will be good for my muscles, with different hills etc.
I was out for less than a month and my injury was not severe so I could probably have resumed at about 14 - 15 miles a week but I just felt like starting from scratch. Afterall, what's the rush?
