I'm a big fan of Sam Murphy's work - I've mainly read her magazine/press articles rather than books and saw her speak at a VLM expo one year. I'm sure a list of her books must be available online and you could find one that looks of interest to you.

Lol @ biffa :-) Welcome to Fetch! Does it need to be a female-specific book? There are lots of good books where the information applies to everyone. Tell us a bit more about your goals.

It’s not specifically about running but someone I know wrote a book specifically about women and exercise if that’s what you’re looking for. Boobs, periods, women’s stuff, the lot. She’s a GP and a runner

Another vote for anything by Sam Murphy. She's the real deal - runs a group near us on the south coast. Her books are well researched, planned and nicely written. Accessible, inviting and sensible.

Got something to say?
