The Beginners Running Guide by Ken Maclaren, paperback, 104 pages, Kineli Publishing (2001), ISBN: 0958228779
This guide is for anyone who wants to start running for health, fitness and maybe the challenge of taking part in an event. There are two main themes of this guide. The first is to show you how to get from your own fitness starting point to being able to run regularly and relatively comfortably for thirty minutes at a time. The second is to show you how to train so that you can take part in running events of 5 kilometers and longer. This guide will help you avoid many of the pitfalls that can await the "newbie" and "wannabe" runners. There is help here for those who have no sporting and exercise background, as well as those who are changing to running from another sport. No matter what your age, shape, previous exercise or sporting background, if you want to run this guide will help in a logical and realistic way to go from your first running thoughts until you are a regular runner, learning the easy way.
