    Do you run?

    Do you run? (I mean, running/jogging mid-long distances, so more than 3 km.)

    Do you enjoy running? (Preparing for the run, during the run, after the run.)

    If you do run, please share your running routine and experiences :)

    Hey there platorepublic! :) I have no data to support that this is correct, so it's all purely speculation, but I would wager that not many ESFJs run (solo that is). If there is a group of friends that all like to jog, then maybe, but otherwise, I find it tedious. But seeing as you didn't ask about generalization but want actually ESFJ responses, here is my experience with running:

    I do run, but mostly short distances. I'm not a sprinter, but I do wind sprints to warm up before all my workouts. I sort of enjoy these sprints, because I'm almost always with the team, laughing, chatting, or the like, while doing them. My sport of choice is alpine skiing, line riding, whatever you want to call it, so not a lot of running there, but I also love baseball, hence the necessity for short distance running.

    I only see running as a warm up / cool down, any other form I honestly find tedious and mentally exhausting. I love a little more adrenaline pumping style activity, but that could just be me. Hope this helped :)

    I hate running.

    I should probably elaborate. I like the idea, and I want to be able to run (not on a treadmill) but I have no stamina for it. I'm kind of lazy.
    On the occasions that I do, the during is evil but the feeling after is great; feeling productive/refreshed. And I like being flustered and out of breath. I feel messy and human and raw and it's a nice change from how I always try to be 'together'.
    I do enjoy other forms of exercise, like walking for a really long time or the elliptical (plenty of endurance for that, strangely). I mostly enjoy any exercise for the time to think. When my physical self is preoccupied, my mind is more at ease and I find myself sorting out problems and thinking about a lot of things. It's like extra time to piece together parts that I may have missed during the day. Not sure if that really answers your question though :/

    WOW RD93, you have just described me as I run. Yes, I run 3 - 5 miles a day. I run alone and find that by doing so I have time to sort out all of my thoughts for the coming day. (I run early in the morning). Because my mind races all day long, it is easy for me to calm myself down and start my day with clear thoughts. After running, I typically write down all the things I have to do for that day and it doesn't seem so overwhelming.

    I used to love to run long distances but eventually I damaged my arches so bad that I don't do it any more. It wasn't uncommon to do 6 to 12 miles per day, 3 to 4 times per week.

    Any more I stick to a bike for my aerobic activity.

    Rule 1: Cardio: This one comes up in Zombieland and clearly makes a lot of sense. How many fat people do you see at the end of the world when its zombies doing the ending? I better hit the gym or I am screwed because I am far from an athlete now!

    In my defense, RD93, I enjoy running very much and I used to be a long distance athlete for my school. But ironically, I don't run anymore, I would love to, but I don't, because I "cant". Not because I can't anymore. It's because with all the time I'm spared for, it really makes it difficult to find the time. Perhaps, a contributing factor would be laziness, as I spend way too much time on my PC, gaming and posting on forums like these. But I will always be in favour of running as a proactive, healthy thing to do. I hope I get the chance to formulate some routine so that I can run once

    Hey... I might have a fix for that :)

    You load the game onto your phone and then when you run, you earn items for your base. Zombies occasionally chase you (you hear the audio warnings) so you have to sprint for a bit, then you can slow down to a jog once you are safe.

    It's mission based and you can go online to spend the points you earn on building your base bigger to withstand the zombie attacks and outfit your survivors.

    Win - Win !!!

    and the whole thing is only $3.99

    When I do exercise I do run. Its when I feel like it and however long I think my body is ready for at the time. I want to do enough to maintain my good muscular tone but Im not trying to become a pro at it. I ran track in middle and high school but I think I only did it because someone put it into my head- I dont ever remember thinking that it was awesome other than the fact that I looked good doing it. I do enjoy running however, I just like it in limited quantities at this point.
