Running Free of Injuries
From Pain to Personal BestBook - 2016
Runners suffer one of the highest injury rates in recreational athletics. This book takes the novice and elite level runner alike through a step-by-step process of avoiding and managing injury from starting line to finish line. Covering running injuries around the body from foot to hip, the book focuses on three key aspects: staying on track and injury-free; early detection; and how to rehabilitate from an injury. With the knowledge that prevention is better than cure, the book focuses on helping runners to understand their body, identify weakness, and develop a natural defense against injury. Each of these stages includes key training sessions to add into the reader's existing program, relevant for all running abilities.
