think quite a few of the marathon training people will be running at least 5 days a week.

I aim for 5 days a week, sometimes will throw an extra session in on monday, sometimes on a friday, sometimes both. So I would say I run between 5 and 7 times per week, generally 5.

Yes I run 7 days a week. As long as you make sure your recovery days are truly recovery (nice and slow) I've found it works well. I do always have an easier week or two after big races though, where I will have some full rest days and generally take things super easy.

WoW! impressive stuff guys. Your responses are super encouraging. I live in India, and i love to run more than anything in the world. Unfortunately i find myself with the lack of a coach or friends who enjoy running. So this is an excellent platform for me to ask the questions that only a runner would know how to answer.

I'm still curious though, if your'e not training for a marathon, how often do you run usually the rest of the year? And how many miles on an average would you say you do each day, you know when you're not training for a marathon or a big race.

I run 5 days per week regardless of what I am training for. Ideally I'd like to do 6 but a chronic injury is currently preventing me. Mileage-wise I like to keep it up above 45 per week and quite a bit more during marathon training.

5k - 20:50; 10k - 43:26; 10M - 72:03; HM - 99:00; Marathon - 3:29:02

when not training for anything specific i probably run 60-80 miles a week when specifically training for a road marathon i would do 85-110 (highest is 118) if training for a mountain marathon i would cover 90 miles a week but with a lot of hills (9-12K ft of Vert).

I haven't trained for a Marathon in over 9 years and I run 7-9 times a week. mileage depends but when not injured, as of late, 50-70 miles/week
Those who say it can't be done shouldn't interrupt the ones who are doing it.

I usually do 5 days of training, but only 3 running. I find if I add another day of any training in, I'm knackered, no matter how easy it is.

Mostly I ran 6 days a week and rarely more than 48 miles but with lots of hills. My emphasis was always on quality which negated the need for quantity. I needed and appreciated that one day of rest.

Normally 6 for me, although I'm currently on a streak that started on Boxing Day, I'll see how long I can keep this up....!
Long term running goals: 5k <17min (currently 17:16); 10k - <35 min (35:45); half marathon <1:20 (1:21:19); marathon <2:50 (2:57:17).
No real time frame although before I'm 30 seems like a logical cutoff!

I enjoy using the comedy technique of self-deprecation... but I'm not very good at it
