I have been running regularly since last September starting out with two mile runs twice or three times a week. In November I upped that to four times a week and in December I started doing 3 miles each session. In January I added a longer weekend run - four miles, five miles and now six miles. So I am now running 5 times a week and covering around 17-20 miles. My average pace is around 11 minute miles.
I started to run to lose weight and get fit. I certainly feel fitter and my body shape is changing but I am not losing much weight. I have lost about 7 pounds this year and feel that I have another 30 pounds to go.
My main issue is that I struggle with my running and only enjoy it occasionally and I would hope that I would lose more weight and so be able to run better.
