"Running Injury-Free"
Do you run more than 15 miles a week?
Are you working on increasing your mileage or speed?
Are you ignoring minor twinges and strains so you can keep training?
If so, you're a serious runner. Problem is, sooner or later, you're bound to get injured--"unless" you follow Dr. Joe Ellis's advice in "RUNNING INJURY-FREE,"
"For years, I've had running injuries. I could have saved a lot of money by buying this book. It's a great addition to any sports medicine library."--Bob Wischinia, senior editor "Runner's World" magazine
Take the Injury Predictor Quiz . . .
a unique self-test that reveals which runners get hurt--and why. Rate yourself on the following:
1. How high are your arches? --normal --flat --high
2. How much do you pronate? --normal --mild --severe
3. What's your Q-angle (from knee to hip)? --normal --narrow --wide
4. Are you bowlegged? --normal --moderate --severe
5. How flexible are your hamstrings? --reasonably flexible --very tight
6. When do you run? --morning --noon --evening
7. How long have you been running (in months)? --1 or less --2 to 3 --4 or more
8. What's your percentage of body fat? --below 15% --20 to 25% --26% or higher
9. How many races did your run in the past year? --0 --2 or less --3 to 6 --7 or more
10. Have you been injured in the past? --yes --no
To rate yourself on other injury predictors--and calculate your odds-turn to chapter 1. Then read what Dr. Ellis has to say about: How to train while you heal from an injury . . . Ways to speed healing of sprains and strains . . . And what you can do to avoid running injuries altogether.
