I run 10k daily, literally everyday.
My legs become sore but I keep running, after some time my legs tend to be back to normal. I still carry-on. Now I feel, that I run too much, and my legs feel tired. Should I carry on? And let be?

If you feel you're doing too much, you should listen to yourself. There isa condition (don't know what it's called in english) with what you could collapse like middle of your run just because your body is too tired (even if you're not feeling so), so you do need rest. With this your body also stops developing, so you could do example loooooong long runs, but there's no improvement in your health.

As Mari k , told Dont overtrain ..just listen to yourself and observe your body reactions ...if you feel sore or tired ..just enough, in the sense take some rest breath deeply ,if you want you can continue running or you can end it...and next day you can run again..

I'm two weeks into letting my knees recover from not slowing down or stopping when I started to feel pain. Like others are telling you, listen to your body and if you're like me and just wanna keep going hard find another exercise that's safe for your body

Work it up slowly.. 1km first month 2km next and etc.. Over stressing ur legs can cause problems later on.. Ur joints are well protected by a special fluid to prevent friction  between, if overuse it will be slowly pushed out to then point where bone meets bone, and thats very painful. If ur serious on running, ask assistance from professionals..

If you run the same distance every day your body will get used to it so you don't need to take a break unless you up it but you will a large portion of your upper body muscle mass :( if you haven't already ran it off :P

I run 10km a Day most Days to. No problem tjere. Just eat accordingly. Muscle rifts (what courses DOMS ( muscle soreness)) aren't accumulative. So you should be safe as long your only sore.

If you feal any pain you should stop immidietly and rest.
