Loosing too much muscle
1200 Calories a day isn't nearly enough for your height and weight. you should be eating closer to 2500 calories. By eating 1200 a day your body is going into starvation mode and eating muscle for energy.

if you want to burn fat not muscle and keep muscle mass on you should be eating roughly 2100-2500 calories a day if not more depending on how hard your work out are. This will cause your body to build muscle and eat fat eliminating your issue. I know it sounds weird to tell you to eat more but I promise it works. I have to eat 3100 calories a day or my muscle mass goes down and I don't have the right amount of energy to excercise. I am 6'2 and 214 and I wasn't eating enough. When i started applying the information above I started noticing my muscle mass going up and fat going down. Hope that helps

I have do the p90x and I use my heart rate monitor and I enter it under the manual section and then you can enter the amount of calories you burned. if you are doing p90x you should really have one of these it helps a ton!!!

Running on a Treadmill vs. Outside
I find running outside more challenging than a treadmill so i prefer outside. You have to concentrate when you are outside to do the heal to toe run so that you take some of the impact off of your knees and hips.

If you really want to work to a 10K i would suggest running intervals for a while 2 minutes normal pace then one minute at a fast pace. This will not only burn more fat reducing weight (if needed) but will make you a faster runner as well. Overall the interval style will let you run at a normal pace for longer getting you to your 10k. good luck!!!!
