If you’re a runner, you have likely faced at least one injury—the closer you push to your limits, the more inevitable injuries become. But they don’t have to derail your running. With a little foresight, you can make yourself more injury-resistant and improve your resilience when injuries do occur.
Here comes a wonderful book to help you: The Durable Runner, by Alison Heilig. Alison is a running coach, yoga teacher, and strength trainer—and, as you can deduce from the cover, a protégée of mine who has assisted me at Kripalu. I was honored to write the foreword for this excellent book, which is clear, inspiring, and easy to follow. If you’ve been plagued by injury or have been wondering how to make yourself stronger so you can meet your running goals, this is the book for you!
Its publication date is November 1, but you can preorder now on Amazon or wherever you like to buy books. Meanwhile, follow Alison on Instagram—she’s so inspiring in her unique combination of strength and honesty. Your feed will be the richer for the follow, and your running will be better when you read and incorporate what you find in The Durable Runner.
