Stretching is an incredibly important aspect of running and yet it is frequently overlooked or poorly executed.

This book will help runners to understand their bodies, identify weaknesses and develop a natural defense against injury. Whatever your age or ability, runners will find a range of stretches, clearly organized by body part, as well as a detailed strength and conditioning program.

Paul Hobrough is a chartered physiotherapist, sports scientist and Clinical Director of Physio&Therapy UK. A Team GB athlete for 16 years, Paul writes for Runner's World magazine and is recognized as a leading authority on injury prevention.
