The Hidden Component of Health: Restful Sleep (Orb Sleep Complex Review)
It’s a cardiovascular and aerobic activity that many people work towards getting into to not only achieve fitness goals but also goals they’ve laid out in life. Half Marathon. 5k. Full Marathon.
With those goals, though, you’ve got to start somewhere! Runner’s world just released The Runner’s World Big Book of Running for Beginners and I was able to review it – it was written by Jennifer Van Allen – a Runner’s World online coach, Amby Burfoot – Runner’s World editor at large, Pamela Bede – a sports nutrition expert, and my buddy Bart Yasso – the chief running offer at Runner’s World!
Here’s what I think about it!
When people get into running they realize there is a LOT that goes into it. I know I learned that myself the hard way! This book is an excellent guide for new runners! It lays our verbiage used in running related to gear, workouts, types of runs, definitions for those runs, and so on! It’s kind of like a Beginning Runner’s Encyclopedia 😉
My favorite parts of the book?
A Chapter to Soak up = Chapter 2 – Become a Runner in Five Easy Steps:
1. Start Walking
3. Run Non-Stop
4. Run Longer (up to 60 minutes)
5. Run Faster
This section also describes details for each step and how to plan out your weekly runs to achieve these goals!
I also enjoyed the stories sprinkled into the book called “How Running Changed My Life.” I’ve shared my own story here on the blog about how focus on breathing with Allergen-induced Asthma and how running has helped me push through plateaus physically and mentally. These real-life stories are motivating and inspirational as well as relatable.
Our race recap of yesterday’s race will be up this week – SO much fun!
