The Beginning Runner's Handbook

Practical primer for anyone who wants to start running today

I was in need of an excerise program that was simple and consistent. I knew that running fit the bill, but had tried a few times in the past to begin but years of inactivity — I had been a runner 10 years prior — made each attempt a frustrating one. I reached a point where I had to have a detailed step-by-step program to help re-establish a running routine. This led me to search the ‘Running for Dummies’ genere. This book is the best of the lot. It takes you from ground zero to a 10k in 13 weeks — provided you are in good health. If you are not, the authors address that issue too. They are very keen on making running something you ease into as they contend this allows your body to adapt to a sport than can be a shock to the system when rushed — don’t I know it! 🙁

I used it to prepare for the Peachtree Road Race here in Atlanta. Its a wonderful program and there is even an additional 13 week ‘intermediate’ program to help you continue the process along with a lot of other fun tips and tricks!

If you want to start a running program, get your hands on this book today!
