    I used to do it. My friends and I would alternate running and swimming days. Now I just don't have the time and not sure if I still can without getting a heart attack :lol:. My mates don't live here either (we've all moved). I don't like running alone.

    Not for me. It's killer on my joints and the smog here is terrible. I prefer to go swimming instead since it doesn't hurt my joints, it's hot and it's fun! :boat:

    I used to run a lot of long distance but naturally I am a sprinter so I do a lot of that, I need to stay in shape for track somehow ;)

    Usually I like to run on a track because sprinting is very particular and you have to have perfect form, although I also sprint up my driveway (it's a long uphill) and it seems to be helping a lot.

    I will admit though that sometimes a good long distance run can do you some good.

    I'm better at sprints, but I'm better suited to long distance, although that doesn't really seem to make sense. I do enjoy long distance running more than sprinting.

    I live in the middle of nowhere so it kinda comes with the teritory, I do enjoy it though - plus it gets me out the house more!

    Not running, but I bike. 20 miles a day to get to and from work. woo! It's all flat, but still.
