Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


For many people just the thought of running is enough to make their knees hurt. John Bingham and Jenny Hadfield used to feel that way until they discovered that it is not only possible to become a runner at any age or fitness level - it can also be a fun and life-changing achievement. This informative and inspiring book is designed to help new and improving runners easily and safely incorporate the sport into their lives. It guides readers all the way through their first year as a runner and beyond, and covers everything from getting ready for your first run (or walk) to preparing for your first race and improving on your own personal best. Twelve different running and walk/run training plans are provided for people with different goals and different levels of fitness. The book also includes advice on nutrition and hydration, and the role the mind can play in successful training and racing. With tips on finding the right shoes and guidance on the stretches and strength exercises that can help, this book is the ideal companion for every new and improving runner. It will inspire you to hit the road, trail or track and achieve more than you ever thought possible.
