    I run that much every other day for my cardio, and my legs are fine. I used to run that everyday too but found out that was too much for cardio.

    3 miles a day is more cardiovascular health than fat burning

    not hardly....its all about the pace which the 3 miles is run at.. If it was a fast consistant anaerobic run then you could say it was more for teh cardio system, if it was a slow walk or jog, then you could say its more for fat burning. If its the blesses HIIT then you could say that its more for muscle gain, retention, and strength, along with fat loss.

    These are the assumed reactions to pace, but i feel that the lines are more blurred between them than people care to admit..

    yep, good number to be at. Most people can't even run 1 mile at a good pace, let alone three.

    3 miles a day, everyday, for a month? Christ man, change it up. Have short, hard days. Have long, slow days. Have rest days. But goddamn, if you run 3 miles a day everyday and nothing else you'll get sick of running within a year.

    I gotta get back into jogging. I was in great shape when I only ran two miles four times a week. I'd get off the late shift and run the neighborhood late at night

    Usually 16-20 minutes. My trail is flat so not much incline in my jog.

    BULLSHIT

    if you've been running for a month there is absolutely NO WAY you're doing 3 miles in 16 minutes. a 16 minute 5k (which is like 3.1 miles) will have you running at a D1 college. I have 3 friends, none of which could do a 5k in under 17:00 in HS, and they're all at D1 schools right now, and these were kids who had been training year round for half a decade. 20 minutes is slightly more believable, but even so, after a month of running unless you started in excellent shape I still highly doubt it.

    Do you know what your timed mile is?

    I have to call BS on the 16-20 minutes... BIG TIME BS. Unless you mean 16-20 per mile that is which would be truly pathetic... now 3 miles in 20 is a great time for a novice, and 2 miles in 16, but if you are saying that you approach 3 miles in anywhere near 16 minutes i will have to pull out my old friend MR SHENANIGANS.
