Product description

From the Author

We decided to write Running Made Easy because, although one of us is a speedy hare and the other a slow-paced tortoise, we're both equally passionate about running and keen to spread the word. We think that the secret of our enthusiasm is that we're continually finding new ways to make running fun, and that's what we want to share with you. While we were writing it, we got to talk to some amazing people who've gained an enormous amount from running, from Beryl who beat depression and agrophobia and now runs everywhere in a pair of fairy wings, to Julie who, at 19st, lost half her bodyweight through running. Julie kept a log of every run she did and even drew a weigh-loss chart to help keep her motivated. Inspired by this, we've included loads of colourful charts and a six-month running diary so you can use Running Made Easy as a workbook to help keep track of your running progress as you go from minute to mile (and even perhaps a marathon!) We hope you have just as much fun reading it as we had writing it.

Just what I needed at 51 after running 5 years and struggling with health issues and Menopause and getting slower and slower. It is honest - motivating and directly to the point but never appears to tell you what to do - it's like talking to a friend. Covers every issue I have ever thought of and more in a practical down to earth honest easy to understand way. Why did I not know about this book before ?? I would recommend this book to everyone - young and not so young, new to running or not, needing guidance , a boost or just a dam good read - thank you ladies for being their when I needed you 😍

This is a fantastic book. I've liked the idea of running for a while but never had the motivation. This book has been the catalyst for me and now I've been running (well jogging slowly with lots of walking) for 4 weeks now. Very impressed with myself!!
I've read bits of the book most days before I go out just to motivate myself and feel so much better when I come back.
The thing I like most about this book is that it allows you to take it slowly and to acknowledge when you feel crap and hate running!! You'll find that you soon get addicted to the highs...
You actually feel they these ladies have been through it and know how much it can hurt!!

I bought this book last year. I was a 42 year old bloke, and didn't realise it was geared specifically for women when I bought it, but having forked out the money I thought I'd give it a go anyway. I'd had a knee operation in November 2004, and had a few setbacks while recovering, but finally in August 2005 I was able to start with the run a minute, walk a minute plan. In my case it was more like shuffle a minute, walk a minute, but I gradually built up my times, and as I did so my running improved too. I took things a bit slower than the book recommended because I was worried about my knee.

Anyway to cut a long story short, in May 2006 I entered a sprint triathalon, and from then on I have been competing (I use the word loosely) in sprint triathlons, sprint duathlons and 5K races, and I am building my way up to my first 10K race in a few weeks time. I found the book helpful and motivational all the way through this.

So I would have no hesitation in recommending this book to anyone, male or female who wants to start running. No-one could have been much slower than me to start with, and though I'm not exactly fast now, I'm a lot faster.

This book really helps build you up from nothing, to your first 5K fun run. If you want, you can stop there; if not the book also takes you on to further distances (but I don't have any experience of those yet!)

I have gone from being a person who really didn't like to even think about going faster than a walk to a three-times-a-week-runner and this book has helped me to complete my first 5k race an have a fab time doing it.

If you want to run or even just give it a try - this book is great. The graphs and plans give realistic goals and I think that most reasonably healthy people (and some less so!) will be able to get to the point where they are running more than walking.

The book takes you right from walking through to a marathon for the more adventurous.

Please please give it a try! You'll love running !
