“I HAVE A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT MY BODY NEEDS TO PERFORM AT ITS BEST”

Like many men, James Gladman wasn’t looking to lose a huge amount of weight. At just under 13 stone he was coming in at around average for his age and height.

About Men's Running

Discover the best running gear of 2017 with the December issue of Men’s Running. In our annual Men's Running Awards, our team of real runners has tried and tested over 1,000 products to give you an impartial guide to the very best shoes, kit, tech and nutrition of 2017. We're not just helping to fill out your Christmas lists, though; this issue, we sent writer Matt Maynard to the wild forests of Sweden to find out, among other things, what it's like to run with wolves. Hopefully it inspires you to set out on your own running adventure, away from the stresses and strains of everyday life – deadly animals optional. Elsewhere, regular contributors Steve Way and Rob Kemp both turn their attentions to the subject of staying fit while injured. The impact nature of our sport means we’re all destined for at least a brief spell on the sidelines, but it's what you do during your injury lay-off that determines how quickly you can get back into the swing of things. All that, plus the usual run-boosting advice, inspiration and race reports in the December issue of Men's Running.
