Summary

Running Repairs is a handbook for everyone who runs - from 
those training for a one-off charity event, through those who run to 
keep fit to experienced club runners who regularly race. 
 
 
A recent Runner's World magazine survey revealed that over 
80 per cent of runners have experienced an injury and that avoiding 
injury or recovering from injury is the main worry for nearly every 
runner. This will be the first book to specifically address these 
concerns. Written by an experienced physiotherapist and recreational 
marathon runner, Running Repairs is written in two parts: 
 
 
 
 
 Part one - covers a 
series of strengthening and flexibility exercises designed to be 
incorporated within any running schedule, designed to help prevent 
injury in the first place.  
 
Part two - covers the 
most common running injuries and how to manage them. A series of 
flowcharts helps the reader to diagnose the most likely cause of any 
ache and pain and recommends a plan of action to aid recovery - from 
rest and ice to referral to a physiotherapist. The book also 
covers basic biomechanics so that runners can understand their running 
style and identify the specific injuries that are associated with that 
style, plus nutritional advice for recovering from injury. The book 
will be an essential reference for all runners - allowing them to treat 
any injuries immediately and in many cases saving considerable amounts 
of money on unnecessary physiotherapy appointments (the author 
estimates that about 50% of injuries that runners visit her practice 
with could be treated effectively by the patient and that the vast 
majority of injuries could be avoided with appropriate exercises being 
incorporated as part of training).

    There are many exercise programs out there to choose from; however, choosing martial arts as that exercise venue is a big decision.  As in all sports, dedication and discipline are required in your chosen sport to become good.  In choosing the martial arts as your pursuit, that dedication and discipline is at a very high standard.  It becomes a lifetime devotion which is geared towards a code of honor, a creed to follow, and responsibility to carry your skills to a higher human level.  This book is not just about martial arts or about you making a survival choice regarding a self-defense endeavor; it is also about life and longevity as well as how to stay and maintain that state of physical well-being.  This maintenance or balance formulates the essence of Taijiquan the philosophical concept for both its defense training and its health benefits.  I hope in reading this book it will help you to choose wisely.
    
    What would happen if the masters of different martial arts academies join forces to devise one master form of martial arts?  This should include all the martial arts systems, styles, philosophies, and functionalities and to embrace the hidden secrets of their individual styles and formulate one master super self-defense universal system that is all incorporating and encompassing.  A structure in which entails the very essence of human survival.  This new system of martial arts would maintain the subsistence for the sacredness and protection of our evolutionary way.   This way is the continuation of the human-species.  Longevity depends on maintaining your survival skills and survival skills depend on maintaining your health.  It is all tied together and there is no separation of these factors.  This book is about that; to maintain and live a healthy and long life through the use of the martial arts format.  I called the union above The Yoda System.
