About Women’s Running

With the festive season approaching, life is about to get busy. That’s why, this issue, we’re helping you ensure you keep up your running over the festive period with our Christmas Survival Guide, including a four-week training plan, achievable no matter how busy your schedule. Wellness is at the centre of the issue: you’ll find information from our resident GP on how to ensure you’re getting enough iron in your diet as a female runner – and spot the warning signs of a deficiency – as well as essential advice on running through pregnancy from coach Laura Fountain, as she looks at why it’s so essential for pregnant runners to listen to their bodies and focus on their own individual journeys. If you’re finding it difficult at the moment to concentrate on – and look after – yourself a little bit more, then don’t miss cover star Karen Lewing’s story; find out how she transformed her life – and her wellbeing – when she did just that. And if that’s enough to encourage you to make more time for you – and your running – next year, don’t miss contributing editor Tina Chantrey’s feature on the benefits of paid-for coaching…2018 might just be the year you take your running to the next level.
