Run long and prosper. Distance days put the tiger in the cat:

A safe approach is to go long once or twice a week, with injury-prone runners limiting themselves to biweekly outings. It takes about 90 minutes of conversationally paced running to stimulate most long-run benefits (for long runs, always think in terms of time, not distance), so you'll want to build up to a run of that length, with more ambitious runners aiming for two hours. This is true whether your goal race is 5K or a half marathon–both races draw on aerobic energy for more than 90 percent of their fuel, so they require maximum aerobic fitness.
