Some good advice here, not to be undertaken lightly and start gently depending on how much running you currently do.Good Luck

were to begin, firstly its going to be a shock to your system presuming you havent run before or for a while.

eating advice i got was breakfast for a king, lunch for a prince and tea for a pauper, couple that with no carbs after 2pm, oh and dont foret plenty of veg where you can plus loads of nuts and plenty of fluids, i find drinking cordial helps the fluid go in (can never drink as much water as i can if their is cordial in it)before running and especially after make sure your piss colourless, like water from a hose pipe

footwear is next, find out what your foot type is and what shoe you need ie if its full/half cushioned, motion control and i cant remember what type the other is, anyway a good running shop will help with this or a physio, runners in new ferry used to offer an assessment for free if you bought a pair of trainers, best not go to jjb because they wont have a clue.

i wont bable on about training as i dont know what you have done, let me know and i can put my 10 pence worth in

I don't intend running a marathon but quite fancy the idea of running to get fit.
My problem is I need to lose about 3 stones and find after about 3-4 mins I'm knackered, disheartened and give up ...... any ideas to help motivate myself ?? (apart from the obvious - losing weight) smile

thats just fitness, more you run the longer you will be able to go for and results show pretty quick, try cutting carbs out completely after 2pm, see if that has any affect for your weight. as for motivation, maybe a training partner so you can spur each other on

Best training is start by walking. Do 5 - 10 miles a night, you'll be amazed how much weight you lose after a month every night. Lose the weight and it'll be much easier.

So do I btw. 5 miles is an hours walking. Starting out running is excessive if you haven't done for a while and will prepare your joints and feet for the upcoming punishment.

Week 1 Run one min, walk 90 seconds. Repeat eight times. Do three times a week.
Week 2 Run two mins, walk one min. Repeat seven times. Do three times a week.
Week 3 Run three mins walk one mins. Repeat six times. Do three times a week.
Week 4 Run five mins, walk two mins. Repeat four times. Do three times a week.
Week 5 Run eight mins, walk two mins. Repeat three times. Do three times a week.
Week 6 Run 12 mins, walk one min. Repeat three times. Do three times a week.
Week 7 Run 15 mins, walk one min, Run fifteen mins. Do three times a week
Week 8 Run 30 mins continuously.

Slow and steady build up is the main aim for fitness.

People rush in and exert themselves straight away and the mind thinks "sod that, arsed with it am not doing it"

Couple the running with other fitness related tasks, running up the stairs etc.

For food a high carb intake the night prior to the run (tuna pasta salad @ 8pm) early night.

For mid run some of the gels work great, Science In Sport (tropical flavour) availible from Chain Reaction Cycles are a good way for an instant energy boost. I only advise these when you are exerting yourself to your limit plus only when your at a level of fitness where you can keep the heart rate up.

I am in the process of starting running as I would like to try a Triathlon in 2013 and I have a year to train and lose the last 1.5 stone.
