Are you a complete beginner at running who wants to finally learn how to do it? Did you skive PE whenever it was time for cross country? Do you find that you get out of breath really quickly whenever you’ve tried to run in the past?

Deciding to learn how to run takes guts, as you embark on a journey that you are confident will involve a large degree of discomfort. You may have tried and failed in the past to make running stick, but never the less you are determined to master it.

You may tell yourself that “running is hard”, or “I’m just not a runner”, but the truth is that anybody can learn to run if they have the right approach.

There is more to learning how to run than just going out and seeing how far you can go three days a week. Some people will undoubtedly have success with this method, but for most beginner runners this is approach is the reason they failed in the past. It usually takes a little more guidance and support to truly master the art of running.

More and more beginners are deciding to take their first steps to learn how to run. Beginner-friendly races are popping up all over the place and it remains one of the most accessible sports around.

The book explains the importance of the Golden Key, which many runners have found to transform their view of running, and ability to keep going for longer and longer.

You’ll learn about what you need to do before you even think about going for your first run. The kit you need and what you can get away with not having for the time being. You’ll discover the best way to warm up and cool down, how to avoid injuries and how to deal with niggles if they do strike. How to breathe, how to avoid getting a stitch, your running technique, stretches, when it’s the right time to think about running faster or even entering a race, and how to stay motivated.

I cover nutrition for runners, which is especially important if you’re trying to lose weight. My ‘power foods’ you should always have in your cupboards and the linked resources such as recipes are particularly useful.

Beginner’s Luck will change your view of running from a dreaded chore to excited anticipation.

“George Anderson what have you done? I'm really excited about going out for a run tomorrow morning – couldn't get out today so am itching to get out tomorrow and finish Cougar 3. Saturday mornings are for lazing about – not running ; )” – Lisa

Learning how to run should be a fun and rewarding experience in itself, not just a means to achieve a goal. Beginner’s Luck is a complete program that teaches you everything you need to build your confidence as a runner. The book itself contains all the information you need to get running, but you will also have access to a incredible range of powerful resources.

You can join hundreds of other beginner runners in the private coaching forum on Facebook, where you’ll find support and be able to ask me questions personally. There are several links within the book and in the resources section at the back to the companion website www.beginnersluckbook.com. Here you will find video demonstrations of stretches and exercises, breathing techniques, motivational interviews and warm up drills, as well as a downloadable copy of the program you can print out and tick off the runs as you complete them.

The program itself removes the pressure of having to stick rigidly to a set rate of progress, and instead allows you to progress at your own pace. So whether you can commit to 1, 2 or 3 runs a week you can still go out and make consistent progress through the program.

If you are a beginner runner who would like to learn how to run for up to an hour AND surprise yourself as to how easy it really is, get Beginner’s Luck and start out on your journey today.

I’m doing the program set out in the book and have joined the really helpful Facebook group to help me keep going. A really good book and an excellent program. George makes taking up running as painless as possible and interacts regularly online to add real value.

This really works

Whatever level of fitness you are starting from, you will find that this has a starting point for you. The book alone would be great, but you also have the FB On the Wagon group and the fact that George will email you, and reply when you email him (!) So you have the programme plus support, inspiration and encouragement. If you want to start running, see yourself improve and get a real boost from it, get this book.
