How do you run? This isn't a question of how far or how fast, of what you do in training and racing, but how you get there. How do you put your feet down: How do you use your arms? How do you look when you run? Running isn't gymnastic or figure skating and stylish running scores no points. It doesn't have to look pretty.But it must feel right for you. "Right" covers a wide range of undivided quirks, and varies from person to person event to event. Running With Style lists the fundamentals of right running-styles which are individually fitted, speed adapted, mechanically efficient and relaxed. This booklet concentrates on identifying correctable mistakes in running form and showing how to correct them. Plenty of pictures illustrate what's right and wrong. Running is a complete, flowing action - not independent moves by the feet, legs, hips, arms, hands, etc. It works best when it's unconscious. But to improve overall form, runners nee to take it apart like a broken machine, concentrating on fixing the faulty parts. Then go back on a kind of automatic pilot and think of more important things than each step. Running With Style looks at the individual parts and the complete action. It's a valuable repair manual for your form.
