The Running Revolution: How to Run Faster, Farther, and Injury-Free--for Life
by Nicholas Romanov, Kurt Brungardt

Released: September 30th 2014
Genre: Non-Fiction- Running
How I got it: Received a copy from author

From a two-time Olympic coach who has trained the running elite, an essential guide for all runners seeking to go faster and farther without injury

Christopher McDougall’s Born to Run—and the wildly popular natural running trend it sparked—changed the way we think about running, but it has also prompted many questions: Have we been running the wrong way? And, have we been running in the wrong kind of shoe? What is the safest type of foot strike? How many types are there? And what is a foot strike anyway? No existing guide has clearly addressed these concerns—until now. The Running Revolution provides both beginning and experienced runners with everything they need to know in order to safely and efficiently transition to and master a safer and more biomechanically efficient way of running that is guaranteed to improve performance and minimize wear and tear on the body.

More than a one-size-fits-all guide, The Running Revolution will provide readers with clear instructions that they can easily integrate into their unique running histories in order to run safely, intelligently, and efficiently for many years to come.

Review: I never really thought about proper form when running until I actually started running. I mean it's just putting one foot in front of the other. But since I've been running for fun I've been finding out things aren't as simple as I thought. Since I've been thinking more about my running form and figuring out how to keep myself from getting hurt. This book give you a whole program to help you improve your form and reduce your risk of injury. Applying the program to my running form has helped. I can't say how much as I'm still working through the book. The program is easy to follow with instructional pictures and educational. There is a section on proper footwear which I found interesting.
The book paired with the youtube videos, is a great program and very educational.
