how to start-need to lose weight....2 stones

Postby vegechic » Wed Jul 13, 2005 5:50 pm

hello there,i used to run along time ago for my local team,i ran cross country,i havent done anything for years and i really need to lose around 2 stone,im 5ft 6inchs and 11 st 11ibs.

i would like to run i think but i cant remember how to start off well so i dont lose interest,how i go about it in terms of how much i run and how often to get great results for burning fat!

I don't know how much a stone is and the other sices...

But i could tell you something about running..

I would start with 2 times a week 20 minutes.. interval (this means 2m 3m 2m 3m 2m 3m 4m 1m with 45 seconds walk in between..) you can play a bit with the minutes.. you can do it also in a piramide start with 1 miunte add a miunte up to 5 than lose one every minute..) the speed should be not to high.. but not to slow.. make sure that you can do the last couple of intervals the fastest.. don't run on your maximum!!! if it's to much.. drop your speed ore stop.. if you want more help send me a pm.. if you've got questions ore comments please add them.. let us know how it works out

If this is easy you can add a long relaxed run 30 up to 45 minutes

good luck

a doctor i work with has a personal trainer and she asked me to go with her,and start running together,so thats great motivation for me as i hate letting people down,so if im meeting her to do it,that will help loads.

sounds like a good basic way to train. i hope it's fun enough to continue..

It's good to build it up slowly.. so you make your body used to running. You can also do some exercises to gain some strengt in your leggs knees & abbs (don't forget your back because lots off people have problems with that see the rest of this site)

good luck!!!!!

whilst running is really good for losing some weight, i would also consider doing some resistance training. as well as burning calories whilst you are actually doing it, it increases your metabolic rate for up to 16hours afterwards which means you continue to burn more calories.
it also will give you extra strength and good muscle tone in areas appart from your legs :)

if you've got energy left you can do it after when not you can do it on a diferent day.. but don't push your self to much.. when the weight training is to support your running, it should not prevent you to run..

i would say a training up to 20 / 30 minutes will do

sorry my constructions are a bit strange sometimes..

you can do 3 things

1 don't do weight training

2. weight training after your normal cardio routine

3. weight training on a diferent day..

I would go for the 2nd ore the 3th option.. depending on how you feel after a cardio training.. if you have enough energy go for 2 if not you can do it on an other day..

when i screw things up it's good to let me know.. i understand a lot but i make lots of mistakes.. in all languages..

keep it simple i reckon. that way it takes less time, easy to remember and easy to perform.

once a week i hit the bench press, and go a few arm curls. these 2 are the most basic and easy to do. and they hit a lot of muscles. i aim for 12 reps and 5 sets. and i train HARD!!!. till failure.

it takes time to work out what works for you. just remember to relax, focus and suffer!

but when you start out , for the first few weeks just get used to the movements. cos if you are like me, it felt weird and uncomfortable. now i can sleep on my bench press!

i eat 100% raw vegan. i eat around 95% of my calories from fruit. the rest is greens and seeds.

this keeps me sooooo lean and vital. its magic.

i eat up to 17 kilo of fruit a day. i race bikes internationally and run for fun. i ran a 44;28 12km road race on raw.

as a vegan you can still get chubby if you eat a lot of processed vegan junk food. the body's solution to pollution is dilution.

so a lot of us just have a lot of water and crap to get out.

www.foodnsport.com is a great site to check out. free and easy to read.

f - facebook.com/durianrider
t - twitter.com/durianryder
b - durianrider.org
w - 30bananasaday.com

Drink up, carb up, sleep up... cos everyday is the day to live it up!
