What Every Runner Needs to Know about Getting (and Staying) Healthy
In an ideal runner's world, every step of every mile would be 100 percent pain-free. No aches, no twinges, no lingering soreness from yesterday's workout. The reality is that many runners constantly deal with a slight (or not so slight) disturbance-a tender foot, a tight hamstring, a whiny knee. While these nagging issues often aren't serious enough to require a time-out, they are annoying, especially when they don't let you fully enjoy your time on the roads.
Runner's World Essential Guides: Injury Prevention and Recovery is chock-full of helpful tips on how to avoid and recover from the most common injuries that plague runners. Presented in an easy to follow format and with dozens of handy sidebars, the practical information in this book will help keep runners on healthy, pain-free, and enjoying their running experience like never before.
