im just been gym and feel positive today. keep me going peeps
Your first problem is that running on a treadmill in a gym is hugely different to running outside! you will find that you are able to run roughly half of what you do at the gym outdoors. The best way to remedy this is to get running outside. The treadmill doesnt provide you with the effects of impact or running on different surfaces which is whay you are getting tired while out.

onto problem 2: The lack of weight loss could be due to your body getting used to the same old routine. Shake your diet, workout regime and intesity up every 3 weeks so your muscles dont become acustomed to what you are doing.

You will start to see results soon...


Hiya Chucks!!
Hiya i run/jog but not very long distances.

I have never run on a dreadmill but from what ive been told there is no comparison to running outside.

How about starting off walking+running?
If you are finding running outside hard then i think (but im no expert)walking briskly for 2mins and the running for 3 mins repeating another 6 times totalling 35 mins would be a good start for you do this 4 times a week with a rest day inbetween.

I do agree with shaking things up abit too,so maybe introduce something different as well,anyway you have very good support from your OH thats a good thing (mine just looks daft at me).
When is your race mines 12th July.
good luck..:)

Have you checked out the composition of your weight? There's a fair chance that you now may weigh the same but it'll be more lean muscle and less fat.

..... also have you taken your inches? All that running is bound to be making a difference!
