Running has become more and more popular in recent years, with thousands of people entering marathons, buying new running shoes with the latest technology, and going for a daily jog. But the joy and thrill of running are often marred by injuries that can bother you for a few weeks or for many years. That’s why every runner needs to have Anatomy, Stretching&Training for Marathoners. In this comprehensive workout guide for marathon runners, Striano and Purcell create a detailed exercise program devised to strengthen and stretch the major muscle groups used in running and jogging, including:

• Warm-up and cool-down stretches
• Stretches that target both the primary and secondary muscle groups
• Step-by-step photos
• How to get started, what to wear, and what running surfaces are best
• How to identify, prevent, and treat common running injuries
• And much more!

Alongside each exercise you will find remarkable, true-to-life anatomical illustrations showing which muscles of the body are targeted. A handy guide lets you know the exercise’s benefits and cautions, along with tips on perfecting your form. Find out how to get started; what to wear and what running surfaces are best; and how to identify, prevent, and treat common running injuries. With a series of sample workouts that show you how to devise a training program to suit your unique goals, Anatomy, Stretching&Training for Marathoners is the ultimate reference for anyone who wants to get the most from their running regimen.
