Running for Beginners

Running for Beginners

Afternoon all. :-)

Just popped into a Tesco in Lincoln and found the above, so got a copy. It's £9.99,but I do love a good bookazine; only had a quick flick through but it looks good for those new to running, and even those who've been running a while.

The last line of the introduction is "once you get the running bug, there's no going back."

How very, very true that is. :D

Tesco here I come! ( well I might as well read about running until I can actually get out there again :) )

Ooh I must get one. I'm with AncientMum. If you can't run, then reading about it is a bit of a fix.

It does look good, just flicking through it again now. Tips and advice on lots of aspects, from kit to racing and other things running related. Couldn't help but buy it! It is aimed at total beginners but I'm learning from it too.

Happy reading, always. :-)

Good idea. :-) I'm too tired to properly enjoy it but it does look good. There's even a 'can a beginner run a marathon?' section. There are actually some good tips in the publication.

As an aside, in a bid to get serious about cross training, I'm going to the gym before work tomorrow. :-/ I ran today, first run after Sunday, and it all went well. I proudly wore my Leeds 10k Finisher shirt. :D

I bought this, and as novice to running but expert lounger I have to say it inspired me, along with this group. I have heeded the advice given and at present 30 mins brisk walking with occassional burst of slow jogs is all I manage, but I do believe this will guide me to my goal of running 30 minutes eventually. Thoroughly recommend it and the advice in it is great on lots of topics. :)

I read a bit more of it earlier; it's actually very good and I'm learning things and picking tips up. I'd never seen it before and always check the magazine rack for running related publications! Hope you manage to get one!
