Hi

I started running about 4 weeks ago. I recently had a baby and im using running as a way of weight loss and to help with pnd. I used to be a keen runner and picked up a knee problem years ago due to over training, poor trainers and osteopenia. Now when i run, soon as i set off, my legs are really heavy they feel like lead and i run funny. Its frustrating cause im training but im not losing the weight and i feel its cause im not able to last with a run. Does anyone have any advise thats helped them lose baby weight? Or anything that will help with my running?

Thank you

Try do beach runs or any type of running on soft surfaces so you won't have too much pressure on your knees. Keep in mind that no matter how much you run, of you are not eating right then it won't matter.
