The August issue of Women's Running is out now! Here's what's in store...
In the August issue of Women’s Running we’re focusing on injury. It’s a known statistic that 50% of runners will get injured every year, so it’s well worth getting to grips with the most common injuries, finding out how we can fix them if we have them and – most importantly – how to prevent getting them in the first place. All runners need to read this now! We also investigate the often confusing world of heart rate training: what it is, how to do it, and how this very simple technique can radically change your running forever. Want to take on a distance you’ve never run before? This is the way to do it. Plus, we’ve got pages of gorgeous summer kit – the very best we could find to make your summer running even more fun, a brilliant training plan which helps you run further by running less, an anti-ageing workout that we should all make part of our weekly training, and all the inspiration, races, and joyful people to help you get out there and make the most of the British summer!
