Anatomy of this Runner

Sunday, December 30, 2012

Reading the book Anatomy for Runners by Jay Dicharry.
Jay is a physical therapist and sports clinical specialist.
He gives 10 tests you should do to see where your running weakness might be. Of the 10 tests I failed 3. He then offers suggested corrective exercises. Need to review these to see what might help me to be a better runner.
Actually, I was surprised when I didn't fail all 10 tests.
Hope something can help me improve my running.
Very difficult getting back into running after being off for about 9 months.

    What a coincidence! I am also reading this same book. I am on page 143 - the chapter that talks about running gait.

What do you think about the minimalist approach that he advocates? I know I walk around with just socks on all day inside so zero drop at home, but I don't know if I'm ready to take this on the "road" as yet.
