Running Well is designed to appeal to both men and women; the content is accessible but based on the latest scientific evidence. It shows runners how to minimise the risks of injury and other problems (such as cramp, blisters and dehydration) by showing the difference between training and straining, avoiding overtraining, varying speed and distance, keeping the running muscles strong and supple and honing technique. A substantial and unique section deals in detail with specific injuries, outlining symptoms and causes, who is particularly vulnerable and what to do (in terms of both self-help and seeking professional advice).
