7 hours a week may be great if you plan to road race, but it detracts from time for martial arts practice.

That is in the range of what many professional fighters run. (especially in Mu Thai)

i think it depends what art you do, i like running and was hitting three to four five mile runs a week, i was talking to my coach about how to improve my judo, he said my biggest problems was a lack of explosive power in my legs, and that doing long runs improves your slow-twitch muscle fibres so i should be doing sprints instead---- im too lazy to start doing it though

Running is amazing boring. I can only do like 2-5 minutes before working out....no interest.
I'd rather play soccer, which I do at times.
Though it is easier to do in a group....
And I'm trying to bulk right now, so no cardio!

Interesting: two schools of thought here.
I know old time boxing coaches, and many martial artists, swear by it, but I have also talked to a lot of folks who don't bother with it.

I think road work is done by those who like running. Its not a necessity but if you like it great.
The stamina you get fromn road work doesn't translate to bag work or sparring, but if you like to run, go for it. The only time it "hurts" is if you overdue it, or you do it at the expense of sparring or bag work.
