The Runner's Handbook

Comprehensive guide; great help to beginners

At first I hesitated before buying this book, but wished I hadn’t waited. In the past I haven’t been too keen on running, but wanted to add it to Taekwondo and some gym work for better fitness. This was the book to buy! It has some great programs for beginners — before you know it, you’re running 20 minutes non-stop and looking at local fun-runs. So far, it’s helped me improve my running times and lose around 27 pounds.

This book has put the ‘fun’ into my running, and helps set goals, stay with it and stick to good principles. From running in various weather to illness, other training and safety, it’s all in the book. And if I ever feel a little un-motivated, I re-read the study how pigs were trained to run a mile in under 8 minutes, up to 5 miles a day!
