The must-have handbook to inform and inspire you to start running for good by Amy Lane - Women's Health Digital Editor and creator of hugely popular running podcast, WELL FAR.
I CAN RUN is not the running book for 'runners. It's the must-have running book for every woman who has ever experienced a moment of defeatism and had the little voice in their head make the excuse, 'I can't run'. In 12 chapters, you will discover that you can. You will dig deep to find your inner athlete. You'll learn how to train smart, recover well, sync your runs to your menstrual cycle and fuel right. I CAN RUN will ensure you never again wait until you're thin enough, fast enough, athletic enough, whatever-next enough to call yourself a runner, because if you put one foot in front of the other, repeatedly, you are a runner.
I CAN RUN recognises that this is hard and that committing to consistent training is often more of an accomplishment than the 10KM, half marathon or marathon race itself. You will find comfort and encouragement in Amy's experience of cramps, chafing and the occasional little sick, while learning from leading experts about how to set yourself up for success and get the very best from your runs both physically and mentally.
This book is real talk about the keys to going well far. We're all in it for the long run, together. We CAN do this!
Whether you've only ever burst into a jog when running late for an appointment or have ticked off endurance events, this call to arms has all the advice you need to become a more confident runner. Plus its peppered with inspiring (and hilarious) personal anecdotes. - Women s Health Magazine
