Running isn't as simple as just going out every so often and running around a bit. If you do that, you're liable to end up skipping an occasional run and eventually giving up, or else injuring yourself. I speak from experience here!
This handy book takes you through all the basics: the preparation and self-discipline you need to establish a running regimen, how to deal with muscle soreness and avoid injury, and how to combine sensible nutrition with your running plan, both during your run and in your daily life. For more serious runners, there are also tips on how to get involved in competitive running, and what to expect at a race.
If you're starting out running - still trying to lose those extra pounds from the holidays, perhaps! - this is a really useful reference book. It's not overly detailed, but it's clearly written and tells you everything you actually need to know. The section on making your own sports drinks is perfect for those who don't want to spend money on expensive branded drinks - they taste better and cost less too!
