How Important is Running When Training to Run?

I slightly agree with this stance. I feel the most important runs for ultra training are the long 20+ mile weekend runs. The other short runs are either to build speed or just keep the legs fresh. I like to run every day and I am currently on a streak of at least one mile a day. Some days I do more, but I always do a mile. The exercise helps me clear my head after a day at work. Other sports could do that too(and I do other things), but I don’t want to give up my mile of running or walking every day.
