Run for Your Life

Run for Your Life

A novel by

This book is about survival; survival through running, the simplest and most natural form of exercise. Ernest Dudley took up running in his sixties, within seven months he ran the New York Marathon; he ran it again the following year and the London Marathon the year after that. But Run For Your Life is far more than an account of this achievement. In describing his experiences, with excerpts from his own running-log, he has written an invaluable handbook on health and fitness for men and women of all ages, from teenagers to the middle-aged, and those a bit older. His training programme, covering six months, shows how by regular exercise you can achieve not only physical but psychological fitness. The programme starts with gentle exercise and builds up to achieve the level of fitness needed to run a marathon. Run For Your Life also teaches you how, by simple, natural exercise, you can transform your life, live longer and enjoy it. With refreshing common sense, Ernest Dudley gives guide lines on diet, how to select your running shoes, your running gear, how to avoid injury and how to use exercise to counter stress. He stresses that the most important thing you can do when undertaking any training programme is to listen to what your body tells you. Your body will tell you, for example, if you are overdoing it, and when to ease off training until you feel fit again. All the advice has been vetted by doctors, and the programme approved by international sports organizations. Run For Your Life is an inspirational to all those who think they should do something about getting fitter. Ernest Dudley's regime for fitness and total health worked for him. It can work for you.
