Description - Zest: Running Fit by Jamie Baird
Running is one of the fastest growing sports with more and more people taking part in marathons and charity sponsored runs. Emotionally and physically beneficial, it improves your cardiovascular system and mental performance and reverses the affects of ageing. However, running can be a daunting sport as it is high-impact and can be associated with injuries if it is not done properly. This is the book for all runners - from those who want to get started but don't know how, to those who would like to consider entering a marathon. It gives you all the tips you need from the importance of the shoes you wear, your diet, warming up and cooling down before and after a run, how often and how long you should be running for, your goals and your rest periods. It also gives advice and help on injuries and recovery. This guide will provide runners at all levels with training programmes - if you simply want to start running after work to get fit or if you have been running for years and you want to improve your speed and technique and take your running to the next level and enter a competition.
Running Fit provides inspiring and practical information, giving you everything you need to get fit for running.
