Time and health are two precious assets that we don’t appreciate until they have depleted – Denis Waitley

Running – another passion!

‘The only book you’ll ever need ~ Running’ book. The title says it all – One-stop!

From doing races at school such as the 100m, 200m, 800m and cross country, jogging when I was at University in the early 90s, I got back into running again in 2006.

I have done the 5K and 10K for Race for Life (Cancer Research) and I recently ran the Bupa Great North Run Half-Marathon for British Red Cross (please see website link 1 below).  A wonderful journey shared with my family.

I first read the book in June 2013. It is a must read for people who

  1. Are beginners
  2. Are looking for a better work life balance
  3. Are participating in a race
  4. Used to run and want to run again
  5. Want a healthier lifestyle

If you want some motivation to start jogging/running, read ‘the TOP ten reasons to run list’. There are so many health, physical and mental benefits from running. Endorphins – natural 🙂

The book is also very educational! You learn about the mechanics of the body and muscles and history of marathons.

TOP TIPS and great advice given:-

  1. ATTIRE Clothes and running shoes
  2. BEFORE you start running
  3. BIG DAY planning and preparation. Local, National and International event
  4. CHOOSING who best to train with. I would add staying focused on the run and motivating people, and not talk about your company information /work with whoever you’re running with…, which is what I do when I do my weekly 5K run with 450+ local runners.
  5. HOW to get back to full fitness advice. Sports/physical exercises you can do
  6. HOW to stay fully fit during your training. Prevention is better than cure!
  7. MARATHON planning and preparation
  8. NUTRITION Food and drinks
  9. PHYSICAL exercises you can do to help with your run and ‘why’, such as rowing and weight lifting for upper body stride
  10. PLANNING! Realistic training schedule
  11. RACES 5K, 10K, Half-Marathon, Marathon and Ultra-Runs (50 miles, 100 miles, 24-hour long run!!!)
  12. STRETCHING advice and when best to do so
  13. UP hill running
  14. WHY yoga and meditation can help with your run
  15. WOMEN safety/security and health advice
  16. YOUR running style. How to conserve energy and run efficiently

10/10 – Highly recommend!
