Chi Running. A revolutionary approach to effortless, injury-free running. Danny Dreyer.

Chi Running. A revolutionary approach to effortless, injury-free running. Danny Dreyer. 2004. ISBN 9780743251440.  Some of you may know that I am a recovering runner – still coming back from an Achilles injury last February. Up until I read this book I expected that I would face a series of re-occurrences of my leg injuries, one time hamstrings, another the quads, many sore ankles and then now a weakened Achilles.  I turned to swimming and thanks to Timothy Ferris (4 hr workweek) found a wonderful resource called Total Immersion by Terry Laughlin (wait for the review).  Laughlin referenced this book by Danny Dreyer.  What a find. As aging runners we now have a plan and a program that really pulls a lot of the “good stuff” together. Certainly over the years I have tried to run barefoot in the summer to smooth out my landing and take the hits off my heels. I have learned to lean forward  like the Kenyans. This book takes it all much further with a crystal clear logic and a full preventative and recovery plan.  If you harbor any desire to run like a youngster again or like me, a desire to enjoy it, and perhaps get back to a competitive level, I suggest this as a lifelong resource for you.  Very easy to read and thoroughly pragmatic. I am now running painfree!
