Overall: Look, I never liked running, I hated it at school and hated the idea of it ever since. By a peculiar coincidence I happened to have "The Begining Runner's Handbook" and a pair of shoes at the same time, so I thought I'd try it.
I like running. However, having also picked up some trail shoes in the sale and wound around local country park, I like off road much more.
I asked for (and got) this book for Christmas - and now I want to run up and down hills. I get that I'm likely to die in the process, and that I'd be mad to even try, but it's written in such a fantastic manner that I feel I'd be somehow un-British not to give it a go.
