For training plans there are better books but for motivation this can't be beaten.
Thanks Dawn and I'll let you know how I get on!
Then, I wanted more detail about her Marathon run....I wanted to feel the excitement, the nerves the experience, but it was all rushed through and I didn't even get the time she finished (unless I missed that bit).
It could have been so much better, but it was funny in certain parts and interesting in others......but I was still feeling frustrated!
i thought it was only me who ended out hot and red faced and just wanted to curl up on a park bench after a long run - happily it appears there is at least one other person who goes through th same :)
If you want some sensible advice and a good chuckle this is the book for you!
