Publisher's Summary

Newly revised, this is the most up-to-date, practical guide ever published for women runners of every level.
Today, women make up more than half of the nation’s runners. And, as more and more women have hit the roads and trails and laced up for 5-Ks and marathons, the research showing the effects of running on the female body has grown significantly, too.
The truth is that even though the gap between men's and women's world best times is shrinking, the latest scientific evidence shows that running is a dramatically different experience for women than men - physically, mentally, and emotionally.
That's why it's time for an expert guide created especially for women runners. Introducing Runner's World Complete Book of Women's Running. Inside, it's chock-full of brand-new tips, the latest research, and contributions from more than 100 experts, addressing all of the special needs of women runners, including strategies to help you:

Train for any race, from a 5K to a marathon
Eat nutritiously and for maximum energy
Lose weight permanently
Deal with self-consciousness and body image
Run during pregnancy and through menopause
Choose the best clothes and accessories
Run anywhere safely
Prevent and treat injuries, especially those that women are most likely to encounter
With clear photographs, running sidebars, and testimonials from women runners of all ages and abilities, this comprehensive resource provides the most current practical advice available anywhere for women runners of all levels.

Just plain awful

I was hoping on some useful tips to help my running. Hmmm i couldnt listen to it long enough to get any tips.

The readers voice was so nasal and over American. She droned on and on , after about 20mins ( 1 chapter ) of totally useless and inane talking, id zoned out and wasn’t interested anymore. I certainly couldn’t listen to it for another 15or so chapters.

This book was not for me
