There is more to learning how to run than just going out and seeing how far you can go three days a week. Some people will undoubtedly have success with this method, but for most beginner runners this is approach is the reason they failed in the past. It usually takes a little more guidance and support to truly master the art of running.
More and more beginners are deciding to take their first steps to learn how to run. Beginner-friendly races are popping up all over the place and it remains one of the most accessible sports around.

You’ll learn about what you need to do before you even think about going for your first run. The kit you need and what you can get away with not having for the time being. You’ll discover the best way to warm up and cool down, how to avoid injuries and how to deal with niggles if they do strike. How to breathe, how to avoid getting a stitch, your running technique, stretches, when it’s the right time to think about running faster or even entering a race, and how to stay motivated.
I cover nutrition for runners, which is especially important if you’re trying to lose weight. My ‘power foods’ you should always have in your cupboards and the linked resources such as recipes are particularly useful.
Beginner’s Luck will change your view of running from a dreaded chore to excited anticipation.
“George Anderson what have you done? I'm really excited about going out for a run tomorrow morning - couldn't get out today so am itching to get out tomorrow and finish Cougar 3. Saturday mornings are for lazing about - not running ; )” - Lisa
