There's good reason for women to take up running: scientific evidence indicates that it may lower the risk of breast cancer, osteoporosis, and heart disease. Written by a former Olympic marathoner, this full-color runner's companion addresses the special considerations of women runners, from finding a safe route to choosing exercise gear. It gives nutritional advice; gentle but effective warm-ups and cool-downs; ways to avoid injuries; the straight scoop on running to lose weight, and more. Women will appreciate the gender-specific training tips, including suggested training schedules for 5K and 10K races-even marathons. Other topics include interval and hill training, running during pregnancy, and the best equipment options.
