Product Description

Product Description

This book is a straight to the point, no crap, easy to use 10K training guide to get you up and running (or run/walking) a 10K in just 10 weeks even if you have never done any running before. With 10 straight forward training sessions, a simple to follow nutrition plan and tricks and tips to maintain motivation, this book gives you all the support you could possibly need, bar running the thing for you.

Designed for those new or returning to running there is a focus on supporting athletes with a few extra pounds to lose and is written in a simple to follow way without the unnecessary running terminology or complicated pace/speed formulas of other training guides.

Who is the writer?

Author Julie "Fattymustrun" Creffield is behind the successful blog www.thefatgirlsguidetorunning.com where she supports overweight runners from all over the world to achieve their dreams. In her first published ebook she uses her 10 years of race experience to get you to the start line of her favourite race distance...and more importantly across the finishing line in one piece too.

What are people saying about the book

So I read the book and I signed up for the10k. Yes, I'm training for a 10k. This book is a really easy read and has definitely motivated me to go for it. Worth the money for sure.

I have bought so many books to help me improve my jogging and try to get me motivated to tackle a 10k run, but this one was the first book that actually connected with people who are total beginners/improvers and need some inspiration from someone who has been there before and who wasn't a 'born athlete' but normal like most of us. Would definitely recommend it for beginners/improvers or someone that just needs that kickstart.

Wow a book that is actually written for the true first time runner, and by someone who acknowledges how hard it is for us larger women to get bitten by the running bug. Great advice, great tips. Looking forward to working out my plan and getting started on my goal of running a 10k. Thank you Julie

Is 10K too much right now? Then why not check out Julie's other best selling ebook "Getting Past the First 30 Seconds"

More About the Author

Julie Creffield is a writer, project manager and entrepreneur from Stratford in East London. She has lived in the East End of London for most of her life and has a sharp eye for a juicy project or a funny angle on a story.

She says "I have always been a writer. I used to copy the letters off the SMA tins at nursery until the teachers realised what I was doing and gave me a book to copy from instead. I progressed to keeping diaries and writing short stories in my teens just to make my mum fret and my teachers laugh. Twenty years later I still haven't shook off my desire to write".

Julie has had a colourful working life as a theatre usher, salad packer, barmaid, youth arts worker, cultural facilitator and trainer. She has spent the last 8 years however working in various capacities on the London 2012 Olympic & Paralympic Games which took place literally yards from where she lives with her fiancé Fabian (who is also a writer) and young daughter Rose.

Julie is best known for her humerous writing about the issues facing plus sized runners and is the brains behind the successful blog www.thefatgirlsguidetorunning.com, where she supports plus sized runners from across the world, but she is also a freelance journalist, and short story writer too.

Last Orders is a collection of short stories she is writing at the moment inspired by the characters she has met along the way in East London and is due out in Spring 2014

When she is not writing, or running she can normally be found on the sofa eating

Keep an eye out in July for the new and improved website which will be jammed packed full of Free resources, and also Julie's new ebook "Scream if you wanna to go faster" - can you guess what its about?

Says it exactly as it is. Plain, easy to understand. Great for beginners or those that have been there and fallen off the motivation wagon again (like me)
