The Runner’s World Big Book of Running for Beginners
Winning Strategies, Inspiring Stories, and the Ultimate Training Tools for Beginning Runners
Every day, people are reaching their get-up-or-give-up moments and resolving to change. And they’re realizing that running is the simplest, cheapest, and most effective way to lose weight, live longer, gain confidence, relieve stress, and more. For anyone taking their first steps, the obstacles are fierce. There are fears of pain, discomfort, and embarrassment. There are schedules jam-packed with stressful jobs, long commutes, endless meetings, and sticky-fingered toddlers.
The Big Book of Running for Beginners provides all the information neophytes will need to take their first steps, as well as inspiration for staying motivated. The book presents readers with tips for smart nutrition and injury-prevention, and includes realistic training plans that enable beginning runners to achieve gradual progress (by gearing up for a 30-minute run, a 5-K, or even 5-miler). Above all, it will show newbies just how fun and rewarding the sport can be, thanks to the help of several “real runner” testimonials.
