So today is a bit of an odd one for me. I'm looking forward to running along the coast at night time tonight for the beginning of week 8 but I'm also a bit saddened by the fact that despite my 7 weeks of running I've barely lost any weight, maybe about 2lb. I have been taking some comfort these past few weeks on some of the older threads in the forum on running and weight loss.
I've bought a new scale which also measures composition (I know they are inaccurate) but I did have one done back in February from a professional and wanted to see what the general trend was since February. Based on my measurements I've loss muscle mass where I was at 27% I'm now down to 20.4% and my fat has rocketed to 52.2%.
Now as I said I know the figures aren't likely to be accurate but I have read about runners losing muscle mass. The thing is, how do I stop it? I don't have a gym membership and I'm terrible with going to the gym, I prefer being outside.
