  Quote of the Week  
Cross-Training - "If your primary purpose is to improve your running performance, cross-training does not help you much," says Hirofumi Tanaka, Ph.D, an exercise scientist at the Univeristy of Texas at Austin and author of a review of published studies on cross-training. "There is n important principle in exercise trainng called the 'specificity of training'---that is, exercise you perform in practices needs to be as close as possible to the actual competition." ~ From the May issue of Running Times.

Running Rewired Reinvent Your Run for Stability, Strength, and Speed
Jay Dicharry
In Running Rewired, Americaís leading endurance sports physical therapist and coach shares a program for runners to become stronger, faster, and more durable. Jay Dicharry distills cutting-edge biomechanical research into 15 workouts any runner can slot into their training program to begin seeing real results in about 6 weeks.
For better or worse, your body drives your running form. Running Rewired will show you how to shed old injuries, mobility problems, weaknesses and imbalances and rewire your body-brain movement patterns. Youíll rebuild your movement and transform your running within one season.
Through his work with athletes at REP Lab and top university sports performance clinics, Dicharry has found that strength training alone is inadequate for runners. To develop the four essential movement skills required for faster, safer running, runners must practice better movement as they build strength. In Running Rewired, youíll use
  • 11 self-tests for joint mobility, posture stability, rotation, and alignment
  • 83 exercises to fix blocks, move with precision, build strength, and improve power
  • 15 rewire workouts to amplify any training plan from 5K to ultramarathon

Dicharryís Running Rewired combines the best of real-world coaching and a physical therapy approach to strength and mobility for better running. Youíll find your personal best running form and become a faster, more durable runner.
