Hi new to the forum,
Been trying to loose weight for about 2 years now from mountain biking, then road cycling to actually getting a single speed bike to cycle to commute to work. But the weight is hovering around 15 stone . So thought about running last week, and yesterday i went and bought some running shoes, woke up this morning at 5.30am and went for a 45minute run / jog / walk. felt like rocky balboe wearing a hoody and baggy cotton shorts.
So see if i can shift some weight now.
Dont overdo it to start with, so you dont put yourself off carrying on!
Yep i understand what you are saying, iv had the old saying no pain no gain. lol.
My next run now probably this friday.
If you can't reach "normal" weight by doing "normal" exercise (walking, gardening, playing with the kids etc, etc) then you're eating too many callories.
I would follow the 5K plan you can find on here - walk a minute run a minute etc and then gradually build up -
Prehaps i am shall look into it by wrighting things down cheers for advise.
I shall have a look, cheers Grendel.
Good on you I say, if you keep focussed and get into a routine you'll do well I'm sure. I read something interesting about how increased muscle helps to reduce body fat the other day, it's on here somewhere:
Best thing I ever did -running! I started running around March this year. I couldnt even run a mile at first -really out of breath and unfit. Walked a bit then ran and slowly built up. Im still not going far -but good for me. I go a 5k most mornings and a 10k at weekends -and love it. Ive lost 3 stone and feel and look so much better.
I got a treadmill which really helped me. However, I now much prefer going outdoors -much less self conscious like I was in the beginning (and looking back -there was no reason to be -whats embarrassing about wanting to change yourself for the better eh?)
Keep at it -you'll soon notice a big difference. Not just in your weight -but skin -hair -and my cellulite has gone
Yep -start off slow otherwise youre going to feel pain and put yourself off. Start by going for a walk and doing bits of running inbetween. Youve definetly done too much if you are struggling to walk -not good.
Give your body a rest then pick a day when you have time -weekend maybe -and enjoy the feeling of being outdoors getting fit. Youll get there
