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.
