Whether you run a few miles a week or are training for a marathon, learning to run properly takes time and energy. For many runners physical and mental barriers can stop progress, as until you have achieved a certain level of competence it is unlikely that you will enjoy it very much, or for very long. This book's ultimate aim is to help you enjoy to run - to enjoy the feeling of movement, to overcome inertia, to renew yourself and to boost energy as a result - based on the proven principles of the Alexander Technique. The technique encourages good body use and awareness, teaches you how to release tension from your back and neck and instructs you to run without suffering from injuries. The authors' perspective on the sport takes you into areas rarely touched on in conventional manuals. Instead of placing importance on speed, targets and goals it emphasises the importance of the way you run so you can transform your training and performance. Other titles in this series include "Master the Art of Swimming" (9781843405429) and "Master the Art of Working Out" (1843403501).
