    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    Hmm I must be a little different to most. First time I forced myself to run, hated it, did about 1.5km. Did the same distance + a little more, what, maybe once a week for a while? Soon was on regular 10-15km ones. One day I went out and just kept going, did 20, feet hurt the next day a bit, I know I can not run for a few months and go out and do 6-10 without a problem.

    I hope one day you're jogging along happily, smugly thinking of your own natural running talent, and then...

    WHAM.

    Currently I run 4 times a week and this consists of 3x5 mile runs, which I do in my lunch hour and a 15 mile run on a Sunday morning, but I am training for a Marathon at the moment.

    Diet is very important as well don't underestimate it :)
    And when it's not long distance running I do things such as hill sprints or more intense but shorter exercises.

    Shoveling like I can't remember -- and I'm old.

    When training for a fight I run 2 miles as fast as I can... which ends up being about 13 minutes when I'm in good shape. I'm of the opinion that distance running is good for losing weight, but short, fast runs are more applicable to fighting since a fight is high intensity activity that you do in less than 20 minutes... unless you're fighting a high level pro boxing match, which not too many of us are.
