New York Times Article, The Once and Future Way To Run, by Christopher MacDougall, author of Born To Run. Excellent article, with accompanying video and graphic on correct running. The article traces the history of how people ran before the running shoe industry, led by Nike, aided and abetted by the running magazines, put us into shoes that forced bad technique and moved us away from safe, efficient running, with the result that these days over 70% of runners experience running related injury and pain, much to the delight of the medical community. The article gives props to Dr. Nicolas Romanov and the Pose Method, which two of our trainers at CF ATL, Dan & Mike G., are licensed to teach.
We also have a two day CrossFit Endurance course coming up Nov 19-20 with focus on Pose Method running, programming, & nutrition strategies for endurance athletes. Learn how CrossFit Endurance programming can get you ready for an ultramarathon or IronMan with higher intensity, lower volumne training (one long run of 13 miles once a month).
