This is a great book for anybody wanting to start a gentle programme and build up. I read this and started running from scratch and i can now comfortably run 6 miles!! Good, informative read.

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Mrs. Veronica Turner on 9 Dec. 2009
I'd had a few failed attempts at running over the years and had come to believe that there was something wrong with me and I was never going to be able to run. But this book offered me great advice on how to start running from the very beginning in such a down-to-earth way. It provided counter-arguments to my negative thinking under such headings as 'It's too hard', 'it's too embarrassing' and 'I'm too old'! The thing I was most impressed with was the 'Up and running in 7 weeks' programme that sets out clear walk/run timings that are easy to follow and gradually enable you to go from zero/totally unfit (like me) to be able to run for 20 minutes at the end of the seven weeks. The general lay-out of the book is really clear and attractive, and the content covers every worry, question and query I had about running. I'd really recommend this book.

I found this book first in a charity shop, and later I bought a second and third copy on Amazon to give it to friends as gifts.
I had been looking for a proper running advice book for woman, but with simple and useful language, and not complicated, overwhelming texts.
This book can explain and understands your feelings, physical conditions and gives you the right guidelines how to progress.
Really heart to heart talk from woman to woman about running without being heavy, or loosing the point.
Very practical, useful advice.
I had never even got a better advice from a personal trainer.
Since this book I run a half marathon! and currently pregnant and confident in my exercise and running and training style.
Thank you for the writer.
