Post no space to run

hi, my friend was 130 pounds than she ran 2x 1hr-45 mins every other day for 2 weeks... and now she's 120...and she didn't watch waht she ate
me on the other hand, exercised everyday 3 hrs or so, watched what i eat and lost 3 pounds... and i also ride a stationary bike for an hour everyday...
my friend told me to start running, but i simply can't run that long and twice a day! also, where i live, there's no space to run... trust me it is impossible for me to go downstairs and run because I live in a really crowded city.. so is it alrite for me to run on the spot?
would that help me lose weight?
why does running on the spot does not seem to be as tiring as actually running around? even though it's for the same distance?!

Running in place lacks the resistance that propelling yourself forward creates. It will get your heart rate up some, but it won't reach the intensity of actually running. Rather than running in place, get a jump rope. If going for 10 or 20 minutes straight is too tiring or too hard, do it is shorter intervals (3 or 3 minutes at a time). Aerobics videos are also good for keeping the heart rate up if you are in limited space. Hope that helps.
