what do you want to do? Maintain overall fitness? Run fast over shorter distances? Maintain stamina over longer distances?
Without going into detail, I would think you're better staying as you are than running 3 miles every day.
But long term, you would improve on all aspects of your running by introducing runs of different lengths done at different paces, from a long slow run of maybe 10 miles to a sharp tempo run of 40 minutes down to interval sessions as simple as 10 60 second fast sessions with 30 seconds of rest inbetween. You can rest after a hard session, you don't need to run every day or even every other day come to that.
Vary it all a bit .......do you run off road ?.........do any steep hill work?........I would drop a short speed run into your regime ,and if your not already go off road and up some hills.........just don,t stick to the same routine week in week out .
I've been saying that for 30 years
