Don't neglect strength training, that's my advice. Adding muscle helps lose fat quickly. I just do these four exercises at home:
hey thanks for the advice all decided to do my 10k in november so got just over 10 weeks to train yikes!!!!! lol
Good luck! Hope it goes well.
well done, I started in April 2011 and did my first 10k in June 2011 and did my first marathon in April 2012 and I started from scratch and I plod around but I do it and its a great feeling of satisfaction so if i can do it i'm sure you can
here's my tips that other people gave me that really helped
when I first started building up my miles I only added a mile a week and the furthest I ran before my first 10k was 5miles ( 10k = 6.1miles ) and the adrenaline and support got me through that other mile on the day
swimming and cycling helped, really felt this helped my stamina
carb loading lol, eat carbs the night before your 10k pasta dishes are great for this
i ran 3 times a week ( still do ) and do shorter runs for the other ones and do a faster shorter run and my longer run I do at a slower pace
I am no expert on here by any means but these are tips that people gave me and worked for me and the most important one was ENJOY If you dont enjoy running every thing will become a hard slog for you
enjoy the experience it all brings and enjoy the new friends you will find through running, i know i have
