Running to lose weight / tone up

Hey guys, my name's Deryk and I'm new to this forum. I hope to learn many things about running, since I am just starting back up again. With that being said, I have a question. I'm not overweight, but i do have a little gut and recently noticed some man boobage starting to happen. I've been wanting to start running again but I haven't really had much motivation to start until now. I was wondering if there is any certain way I should run to reduce fat around the body? Should I just run for 20-30 minutes at a good pace or set distance goals? Right now I can run 1.5 miles before I start feeling really tired, and could probably make 2 miles. I've also been doing pullups, pushups, crunches, and I don't know what they're called but its when you hang from a pull up bar and bring your knees to your chest, every night for the past week. Any suggestions about good running or home exercises would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Running to lose weight / tone up

If you're running 2 miles that's probably about 350 calories. So figure that times how many every times you run a week. Chances are over a 1,000 calories. So if you watch your diet in addition you should start to trim up especially if you're doing weight training.

try running twice a day and dont feel bad about taking walk breaks and drinking sips of cold water. The goal is to keep your metabolism in burn mode for as long as possible.
