Long-distance running is a unique sport. After all, in what other endeavour could a 2.2-metre furry lamb rub shoulders with a world champion in an actual race? And, if the lamb is quick enough, it might actually break the tape ahead of a national record-holder! How to Run is the perfect guide for anyone who wants to test themselves in the punishing physical activity of running 26.2 - or 13.1 - miles (42 or 21 kilometres). Every facet of training is covered, from warm-up to warm-down, and exercise and diet to clothing, protection. The author, a journalist and author since retiring from competitive running, is one of the few men who can say, "Been there, done that, got the T-shirt (the one that says London Marathon Winner)," so he has a clear knowledge of what it takes to train properly and effectively and to take the training regime onto the streets in a race. Filled with photographs and illustrations complementing the text, How to Run will make you a better and fitter athlete and make running even more fun.
