Publisher's Summary

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, whether on the track or on a treadmill. Unfortunately, with running comes injuries, as a result of wrong information and improper training. 

Author Jay Dicharry was tired of getting the same treatments from doctors that didn't heal his joint and muscle pain from running, so he decided to combine different fields of clinical care, biomechanical analysis, and coaching to help you avoid common injuries and become the best runner you can be.  

Along with clear and thorough explanations of how running influences the body and how the body influences your running, this audiobook answers many of the common questions athletes have: Do runners need to stretch? What is the best way to run? What causes injuries? Which shoes are best for running? Is running barefoot beneficial?  

The mobility and stability tests will assess your form, and the corrective exercises will improve your core and overall performance so you can train and run with confidence, knowing how to avoid injuries!

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Very great book

You have to have a pretty good background of anatomy and kinesiology to understand and apply the teachings of this book, but you will learn many great things!
