i enjoy running but i hate with a passion doing weights or toning exercises. i went to an exercise class today and i was yawning my head off i was so bored, i dont have the patience for it.
i want to increase my running, and say if i was running 6 miles 5 times a week or more, and i lost weight, would i look toned?
More toned yes, great for toning arms and legs, and can feel tummy muscles but it won't give you a six pack to tone your core you probably need to do something else. Depends on your fat content really.
I never got toned arms from running, but it takes less than 15 minutes a week to do some push-ups.
If you have it in your mind that the gym stuff contributes to better running - particularly strength and stamina wise - you might look at it differently. Dont go into the gym half heartedly - always have a plan in your head as to what you are going to do. Making it structured means you might enjoy it more - I hope!
