    No definitely not 7 times a week. Or maybe yeah if you do it like 2 jogs every other day or maybe 4 days a in a row or something. Not long jogs I mean.

    In 2003 I injured my ankle in pre-season and didnt train footie for about 3 and half months, but as my ankle started to heal I started to run like a maniac. I did 2 short jogs a day with quite faast speed. I ran about 3 kms a day it took about 12 mins everytime. And I was in ******* good shape when I got back to playing.

    I think you can probably find some info from your local Library or something. Maybe from a local Health centre or gym also.


    I cant really give you a program as I'm not a professional on that kinda thing.

    But I can give you some tips like

    Run maybe every other day, 3-5kms or something. With good pace. not Max, but good pace.

    Or run mon,tue,weds and fri. Like on monday a good/fast paced 2,5-3,0kms, on tuesday 6kms slow paced, Wednesday same as monday and friday the same as tuesday.

    Rest is important and Fluid balance is also important, drink before you go for a run and drink after the run.

    And Stretch 10-15 mins after the run.

    Start out slowly and go from there.

    wtf? 2 days a week? thats horrible

    7 days a week, who said thats bad? its the best

    7 days a week, 30 min jog a day..stretch before and after do a cool down.

    nothing wrong with that..tuomas706 u have that wrong buddy!

    fitness u cant scorn on, u have to do it everyday on a consistant basis..the longer u run the better

    Rest is just as important as the physical workout is else your body does not have time to heal.

    Jog every second day. Or match the amount of exercise with a an adequate amount of sleep.

    I'm joggin 4 nights a week. But make sure u do some sprints too else you will lose speed as your muscles will change form and you will lose acceleration.

    This is all very good advice (except for the "no rest" theory. that's just asking for an injury/death). l'll throw in what i (used to) do.

    (I say "used to" because now i referee 10 matches per week and no longer jog because...well...i jog enough during the games)

    I tend to prepare specifically for the referee fitness exams. So i jog quickly for 12 minutes, hoping to cover at least 2km (1.2 miles roughly). If i'm feeling kinda sore, i'll move this run into the gym on a treadmill or elliptical machine (it's easier on a machine).

    Then i do short (50m) sprints, maybe 4 or so.

    Then i do long (200m) sprints (run the longth of the pitch, immediately turn around and run back), at least 2.

    This all takes about 15-20 minutes. Anything else i do is just a bonus (weights training, shooting, extra jogging, etc). I do that 15-20 minute training session every day, and usually some extra stuff about 3 times per week.

    I know it's not really anything hardcore, but 1) i do it every day, so it's not meant to be strenuous, 2) you can always do bonus activities, as long as you do the minimum, and 3) it's better than sitting on the couch eating MacDonalds.

    Somewhere through all of this, DO NOT forget to do your sit-ups! It's makes every other excercise so much easier if you keep up with your sit-ups/crunches!

    With the 10 matches per week now, i skip the jogging and only do the sprints. I do the sprints three times per week, on matchdays. On non-matchdays, if i'm feeling up for it, i'll go and do weights training.

    You shouldn't jog 2 days in a row as your body needs time to recover, my recommendation would be to lift weights/go to your local gym and jog the other days.
