Rather than doing what you think is better, just trying doing what is right for you. There are benefits to both. There are cons to neither.
Pros to splitting it up: it's great if you don't have a lot of time. Or if you get tired easily and prefer not to test your endurance too much. It's also great for what I like to call "injecting calorie burning" into your day. A quick walk clears your head, resets your mood, and revs up your fat burning in the later part of the day.
Pros to logging all your miles in one go: Building up your endurance, and working on your speed.
Me, I exercise once during the day. But I keep a pedometer with me at all times and I strive to log 10,000 steps (roughly about 4mi) every day. Only 2 of those miles are usually done during my run/walks.
"Binging is a descent into a world where every restriction... is cut loose. At its core is a feeling of deprivation.. a feeling you can never get enough. Binges do not signify a lack of willpower or inability to care for yourself. On the contrary, binges are a urgent attempt to care for yourself when you feel uncared for. They are the voice of survival. Binges are the mark of the self that says, 'I am tired of feeling deprived, of being told I am wrong, that I am bad." - Geneen Roth
