Does anybody regularly run/jog to keep the calories down? Just curious.

The key to this activity is to not, even for one second, allow yourself the benefit of think about what you are doing. Otherwise, you'll stop right away.
DON'T DO IT! I was a runner, got into the competitive side; now after an 8 yr career in it I have had 5 knee surgeries and am hoping to be able to walk without pain soon(.....) There are so many other, better, ways to burn them extra calories!
I only run when chased. Even then I think twice about it. Prefer Bike riding. Running with a beer causes too much foam, but the insulated holder on the handle bars work just fine.

I hear you. I run about 25-30k per week, which is not that much. I run outside mostly up a mountain and on pebbles/soil path-no concrete. During the winter, I hit the gym for the treadmill. I think I'll be ok. Nothing competitive, though.
Try interval training on one of those bikes that has a fixed back. That way you can put all your effort into working out as hard as you can without worrying about balance or technique. Do it for 16 minutes.

BTW why do chicks love jogging so much? Does anyone know?
I run but only went it is not convenient to ride my bike. Most of the running that I do is on the soccer pitch. I don't do it to burn calories as I am not yet to that point in life.
I run Marathons/Half Marathons so I run about 25-30 miles a week and up it at certain points of the training cycle.

I run not only for the physical fitness but for the mental fitness. The quiet time away from work and the kids does wonders for stress.
I run about 4 miles every other day or so, in the mornings. It does help to clear the mind.

Getting an IPod was awesome for the run; it makes the time fly by.
ditto. except for the climbing thing. and not much hiking lately. it's easy to cali. not so much in brooklyn...

Two words: Recumbent Bike

You can drink, do the Times crossword (except for Friday -too hard without having to think), watch TV, eat, read, nap......all the stuff a good exercise routine requires.
