Overview

In Running with the Whole Body, Heggie proposes a thirty-day exercise program that will not only prevent you from injuring yourself in a new way, but enable you to become a smoother, and more powerful runner. The exercises presented isolate the workings of the various parts of the body to show how each part of the body balances and works in concert with the others. The result is a body whose torso, hips, pelvis and shoulders all move freely in the act of running. You will discover how to unleash the power of the large, strong muscles of the hips, spine and shoulders to power your running.

Remarkable book. A Feldenkrais approach to engaging your body correctly as you run. You will perform better, will be less likely to injure yourself, and you will enjoy running much more. Highly recommended. Helped get me to the Boston Marathon.
