What Runners Say

"Since discovering Running Explained, I have fallen back in love with running. I had been doing the “keep trying to run faster” approach and was constantly battling with myself and getting sore and exhausted. Getting used to running easy was weird to get my head round at first, but I love it. I am actually looking forward to my runs again."
