Older Yet Faster
The secret to running fast and injury free
Edition 3, 2020
By Keith Bateman and Heidi Jones
☙ Older yet faster is an inspirational book that answers every running technique-related question you might have. ❧
This book dispels the many ill-thought-out yet widely accepted ‘rules’ on running.
It is the go-to manual for all runners, from beginner to expert, and for coaches and medical professionals wanting to learn how to treat running injuries quickly, efficiently and permanently.
When you have finished this book, you will think very differently about all aspects of running. You will fully grasp the physics of running, the effects of footwear and technique on your body, and the benefits of this simple approach to injury reduction and rehabilitation.
Together, Keith Bateman and Heidi Jones re-write the technique manual for both running and podiatry, and show that it works.
