A good primer for understanding and dealing with running injuries. I have had my share of injuries over the last 11 - 12 years. Always rehabbing from one injury and then acquiring another the next year or two from hip pain, plantars fasciitis, hamstring injuries, ITB, etc. With this book and from some others such as Metzl's "Running Strong", I have been making my pelvis and hips stronger and more balanced and the results are remarkable. I wish I knew how essential a strong core, hips and pelvis are for running efficiency years ago. I would have saved myself a lot of frustration. These two books and a good foam roller should be in a runner's arsenal.
I've heard Brad Beer interviewed several times, which is what prompted me to buy the book. However, I didn't find a lot inside that was new or different or interesting - partly, it is really designed for you to work directly with a physiotherapist, (which I don't have access to, so if you have someone you are working with maybe you would find it helpful?)
Brad sets out an excellent framework for faster pain and injury free running. This book is written in a clear and concise way and makes it very easy to put Brad's recommendations into practice. Highly recommended
A lot of books describe injuries , but this one gets to the root of cause and helps you fix it. I am learning so much about my bodies need to strengthen as well as rest. I'm not pain free yet , but I know by my next marathon what I need to do to get there.
