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.

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!!
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!)
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 !
