The Logic of Long Distance
Jay Dicharry has an interesting chapter on running gait in his book "anatomy for runners". Here is a short excerpt:
Thanks for reminding me this was sitting on my counter waiting to be read. Just what I need after wrapping up the latest sci-fi novel yesterday.
I'm maybe a third of the way through this book now. Hmm. Anyone else read it? What did you think?
I am torn -- on the one hand, this could be the most useful book to improve my running I've ever read. On the other hand, well, there are blatant mistakes that make me question the author's competence. No, sarcomeres are not muscle cells (in a book called "Anatomy for Runners"?!). A lot of the early physics discussion (and especially the graphs & figures) is borderline nonsense. But for the most part, everything else I've double-checked elsewhere seems plausible. I'm looking forward to (hopefully) the meat of the book: self-diagnostic tools and correctional exercises.

Good form is in the hips and spine, not the feet.
