Just Cruising is the first book to provide an easy, run/walk program that will have you exercising for fun, fitness or even your first half or full marathon with only three workouts per week. Learn how cruising, or using the run/walk mode of exercise, can make workouts fun, flexible and highly effective. This book is for busy people who can walk, but think they can't run and takes novice or sporadic exercisers from physical inactivity to the finish line of their choice. Inspiring success stories throughout the book help motivate you to begin one of three easy-to-follow, goal-oriented cruising programs: Base Training (3-6 miles), Half-Marathon (13.1 miles), or Marathon (26.2 miles). Just Cruising shows you how to avoid injury using the run/walk approach, how to build a stronger body through simple, at-home strength training and how to eat sensibly for proper nutrition and weight loss. Through well-written, reliable information, this book dispels myths and helps to inspire confidence for promoting lifelong physical activity.
