Nothing beats the pleasure of running. Unfortunately, many runners are slowed down by injuries that could be avoided through changes in training or technique.

From avoiding overtraining to increasing flexibility, Running Well has everything you need to keep you running all year round so that you sprint—not limp—to the all-important finish line.

That’s where Running Well comes in. Based on the latest scientific principles, this accessible guide shows you these techniques:

And if you do get injured, Running Well will return you to action quickly. Sections devoted to each bodily region detail common symptoms and causes of discomfort. You’ll learn how to treat the injury, know when to seek help and know how to prevent the problem from reoccurring.

Each game lists an objective and notes the equipment, number of players, and setup required. Instructions take you sequentially through explaining the game to your players. The games come with variations, and you and your players are encouraged to add to those variations to make the games work best for your particular situation.

Whether you’re using these games in a fitness center, recreation program, or school, they’ll be a hit with kids because the games are a blast—and using nontraditional equipment helps to level the playing field so everyone gets to participate equally.
