A regular running routine can help women over 40 increase their metabolism and lose weight. Interval training, or alternating slow and steady running with bouts of speed, is one of the fastest ways to burn fat while achieving cardiovascular fitness.
Another way for women over 40 to lose weight through running is by adding weekly hill workouts to their routines.
Because running burns so many calories per mile, simply increasing the distance you run can add up to pounds lost over time. For the fastest results, women over 40 should plan on one to two interval runs on non-consecutive days, one hill workout, one to two easy runs, and one longer run each week.


Running on an incline makes your body work harder, thus burning more calories in the same amount of time. The remaining one or two days should be active rest days, during which you can keep busy gardening, stretching or taking a leisurely walk.
For maximum fat burning, run a half-mile warm-up, then alternate running easily for two minutes and running at a near-sprint for two minutes. To safely increase your mileage, add a mile to your long run as well as one or two other runs each week.
Women over 40 who want to lose weight should incorporate interval training, hill workouts and long runs into their weekly workout routines to supercharge metabolism and maximize calorie burn.


Add at least one hilly run into your weekly routine by choosing a hilly outdoor route or adding an incline to your treadmill run. To minimize your risk of injury, increase your mileage by no more than 10 percent each week.
