If you’re like 80 percent of runners, an injury is going to force you to stop your running routine at some point this year, and the demands of daily life only add to the wear and tear on your body. Life in the modern world has trashed and undercut dedicated runners’ ability to transform their running. The harsh effects of too much sitting and too much time wearing the wrong shoes has left us shackled to lower back problems, chronic knee injuries, and debilitating foot pain.
What if you refocus the energy you put into maintaining your current running regimen on forming new habits that can improve your performance and reduce your risk of injury? With Ready to Run, you can take responsibility for what’s going on in your body, take care of business, and harvest any performance that’s hiding in the shadows.
In a direct answer to the modern runner’s needs, Dr. Kelly Starrett, author of the bestseller Becoming a Supple Leopard: The Ultimate Guide to Resolving Pain, Preventing Injury, and Optimizing Athletic Performance, has focused his revolutionary movement and mobility philosophy on the injury-plagued world of running. In this book, Starrett shares twelve performance standards that will prepare your body for a lifetime of top-performance running. You will learn
• How to tap into all of your running potential and access a fountain of youth for lifelong running
• How to turn your weaknesses into strengths
• How to prevent chronic overuse injuries by building powerful injury prevention habits into your day
• How to prepare your body for the demands of changing your running shoes and running technique
• How to treat pain and swelling with cutting-edge modalities and accelerate your recovery
• How to equip your home mobility gym
• What mobility exercises to use for restoring optimal function and range of motion to your joints and tissues
• How to run faster, run farther, and run better
