I suck at running to be honest with you. But i've recently started running a couple of miles a day 5 times a week.

Isn't being able to run important for boxing?

Yeah it is. I can't do much boxing though here in Iraq, so i've toned the running down a little.

I like to do 8 to 10 miles a week if I don't have a stair master around or something to change it up. More than than and I feel like my legs are dead for training. I also think that doing sprints is just as important. I like to sprint twice a week and run three times. Sprints keep you explosive.

AM runs (pre-breakfast fat burner):
2 miles: usually 3 or 4 times a week, real light, 30 mins or so.

PM treadmill (gym warm up):
2 miles: 4 or 5 days a week, more intense, includes sprint bursts, 15-20 mins

Outdoor / roadwork on non-gym days & at night:
5 miles: 2 or 3 days a week, intense, fast, long, hard runs with hills if possible. PB is 34min for 5 miles.

I average 15-20 miles per week. I use http://www.mapmyrun.com iPhone app to track it all, really good app / site for tracking your miles, routes, times, etc.

I used to run every day but a string of leg injuries has set me back heavily. Shin splints ALL literally ALL last year, followed by 8 months rehabing blown out left knee. Finally recovered 100% begining of this month, then got a 2nd degree burn on my left quad down by the knee about the circumference of my fist. That is finally healing up.


But before then, I would run every day. The distance varied between 1-3 miles. Combined with stadium stair sprints and/or multiple 50-100 yard wind sprints.

My cardio was beasty specially when I combined that with the Instanity workout. I don't care how fit you are, Insanity workout will test your heart/will.

I never had a stamina problem or a weight problem, so I never did much running. I only ran 3 miles a day 4 days a week. If you don't like to run, you MUST spar a lot. I used to spar four, four minute rounds, five times per week. With only 30 seconds inbetween rounds. It was all I needed. But if you have a weight problem or are sucking wind by the third round you need to run -- and increase your sparring length and intensity. I should say, I was only an amateur, and never had to go more than four rounds. If I was a pro and had to go 8, 10, or 12 rounds, I would have upped my running.

jog a couple of miles daily - five times per week. i also bring my rope along for runs so that i can get my heart rate up. I have dropped from 230lbs to 205 - doing what i do, over the last two years+. and i can now go four rounds of sparring with my kids fairly easily if necessary.

Man, I think a lot of people here must either be

A) Full of ****

or

B) Unemployed

I can't see how anyone has time to run as much as a lot of people in this thread claim.

I barely manage to get 2-3 runs in a week, all 3 miles.

I spar 4-8rds a week, along with 1 day of just being at the gym working out.

At my peak of working out, I ran 4 times a week 3 miles a day plus intervals. Plus 6-12rds of sparring a weak and 2 other days at the gym just working out.

Worked part time then though...

I miss working part time :(

Even if you work full time you can still run every day. 8hrs is full time. From 9-5. That gives you 6-7 to put in work. You just gotta be dedicated.

I work full time 9-5 and get up to 40 miles running in a week plus 2 days of weights/boxing training in too.

Its not difficult. 2 Longer runs 9-12 miles (Tuesday after work before tea and Saturday afternoon). Plus speed work 3-5 miles at least the other three days ( 1/4, 1/2 or mile reps ). The rest is made up on occassion with runs to and from work on dry sunny mornings (3.4 mile trip there and back).

It just takes some life planning and elbow grease......

i've been running abuot 5 miles 2x per week in the am, and I run one 4 mile run later in the day and I do a sprint day...that's what I'm aiming for, sometimes I get more, sometimes less. I run outside so i can't run as far once it gets into the 90s+ as I can at 6:20 when its only 85....

i still cant lose all the weight I want, but Im in pretty good shape...
