Not only is this book jam packed with everything you need to get going, it inspires you to pull on those trainers and hit the pavement/trail/track.

Essential bit of kit, I'd say.

chefyego - I saw runner's world training diary in Foyles last week. They also had an excellent runner's world book for women runners, which isn't mentioned here - although there's a few books for men. Is it worth me asking why that is?
Posted: 05/12/2011 at 21:41

I ordered three of the above books nearly a month ago. They took the money the same day. Have I seen the books ? NO! I haven't . Do they respond to mail ? NO! they don't. Don't know where to go nexy as phones not answered either. For runners by runners , don't make me laugh.

I suggest you think twice before ordering off of Runners World!


Posted: 15/03/2012 at 19:54

Come to think of it I sure I paid for a book off them 6 months ago
Posted: 15/03/2012 at 22:42

The books are on sale in WHsmiths. Probably better to get them there rather than online here if there are problems!
Posted: 28/05/2012 at 19:51

does the 'complete guide to running' have advice on marathon training?
