So many people I talk to have stopped running because they couldn’t stay injury free or they are pushing through miles taped up and trying to stave off injuries.
I have recommended Kelly Starrett’s book, Ready to Run, to anyone who will listen to me long enough. I find that most people don’t want to run out buy a book and sit and read it. I find my clients don’t want to do the soft tissue and mobility work I prescribe them because, lets face it, with a busy busy schedule and a race to prepare for miles trump body and mobility work for most of us. But I’d argue that it shouldn’t. Cutting back miles if needed and adding in time doing a program like the one in Ready to Run will reap more rewards on race day and the years beyond!
Here’s a link to the book if you want to get it – http://www.readytorunbook.com/
