Full training plans for the half-marathon at all runner levels, with a focus on maximizing performance and preventing injuries, as well as a relatively low-mileage training plan for those busy adults interested in staying fit for many years to come.

Pre- and post-run stretches, along with yoga, Pilates, and strength-training exercises specifically designed for runners. The biggest do's and don'ts for training. A thorough primer on running's most common injuries, emphasizing prevention and treatment, on everything from iliotibial band syndrome to plantar fasciitis, runner's knee to hamstring strains, and many more.

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Regardless of their goals-losing weight, staying competitive or simply staying active-runners of all stripes will want to spend time with sports medicine specialist and avid runner Vad's (Back Rx) engaging and highly informative new book. Centered around five concepts (there's no one way to run, incorporate strength training, train for endurance, monitor your diet, rest), Vad offers a mix of practical advice and research to prove his points. Beginning with the biomechanics of running, Vad helps readers determine their running style, select the best shoes for the task, and correct their form. Should things go awry, he offers suggestions for dealing with common injuries, such as shin splints and Runner's Knee. Simple, effective exercises focusing on specific muscle groups that don't require a gym membership, as well as pre- and post-run stretches help readers get into optimum shape before hitting the road by incorporating Pilates and yoga. Vad's 10-day training approach to marathons incorporates his concepts for casual runners as well as those focused on bucket list events, such as the Boston Marathon, with a day-by-day schedule to help ensure they're able to rise to the challenge. Vad's mix of common sense and science adds up to a healthy, thoughtful approach to one of America's most popular fitness activities. (Apr.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
