Overview

The last word on preventing and treating running injuries-from the magazine known the world over as the most reliable and authoritative source of running know-how.

The world of running-and running injury prevention-has evolved greatly in the last decade. New thinking on injury and recovery suggests that runners can continue to train while injured. And alternative practices—such as acupuncture, chiropractic, and massage—are now virtually mainstream and an essential part of any runner's injury arsenal. Not only is the sport dramatically more popular, but women runners and beginning runners—who are a large part of the growth—have very different needs in the areas of injury and health that have not been covered adequately in previous books. Research in sports medicine also has advanced.

All this—and much more—is covered in this new, comprehensive manual that is quite simply the best, most authoritative guide in the field. Here you'll find:

  • The most important stretches for runners-and why you should not stretch an injured muscle
  • How (and why) to change your biomechanics and stride length
  • How to incorporate cross-training to prevent and heal injury
  • The most important strength-training exercises for runners
  • How to cope with the mental side of injury
  • Special concerns for young runners, women, and older runners
  • The newest thinking in hydration

Beginners and veterans alike will benefit from this expert guidance from the cutting edge of sports medicine and science.
