Nothing beats the pleasure of running. Unfortunately, many runners are slowed down by injuries that could be avoided through changes in training or technique.

That's where Running Well comes in. Based on the latest scientific principles, this accessible guide shows you these techniques:

-How to minimize the risk of injury and stay healthy

-The differences between training and straining

-How to strengthen and maintain the primary running muscles

-Ways of assessing and improving technique

-How to recognize injuries early on and avoid more serious setbacks

And if you do get injured, Running Well will return you to action quickly. Sections devoted to each bodily region detail common symptoms and causes of discomfort. You'll learn how to treat the injury, know when to seek help and know how to prevent the problem from reoccurring.

From avoiding overtraining to increasing flexibility, Running Well has everything you need to keep you running all year round so that you sprint--not limp--to the all-important finish line.

This book is a gem! It has everything from choosing a shoe, to interval/tempo training, to extremely detailed information about running related injuries. The title undersells, this is a book for someone who wants to run casually or to race with minimal injury. And given it is written by two women, it has brought issues such as post-partem and pregnancy running into the discussion, (which some readers will appreciate more than others, no doubt).
