Then several years later,a friend, no one from an athletic background or skiing mention this book,Running and Being. I thought, I'll give it a try. At the time, I was a 2-3 mile jogger.This was max.After reading George's book and how to approach running, then applying these practices togethe.,I was astonished how to run was completely different effort than I had known. This changed my life I became a half marathoner, at least twice a week and ran at least 5 miles on my off days. Like growing wings in every aspect of my life.
Essentially, the concept or achievement in jogging had been first mapping out a route by personal preference and distance. We come up with a distance we want to run. Without much knowledge of our condition to achieve this goal. Many people were suffering from injuries and sometimes fatal consequences. It wasn't till I put Georges concepts to practice, did I learn a much safer and more enjoyable jogging experience. The sky had parted at this moment. Goerge stressed the importance of dropping the goal of trying to achieve distance and use time as a format instead. Especially it the earliest stages of starting to jog or beginning a new season. Run for awhile and if it becomes to stressful walk but the point is keep moving forward regardless for the time being and within this time period. However you do for the time if fine. Then extend your running periods more and more. Eventually you are jogging the whole time. I was surprised how far I went and was able to increase the time. A little at a time. To 1 1/2, 2,2 1/2 hrs. It was a easy program to follow. It made sense to me. I wasn't injuring myself as often.
I read the original book and now see it revised in its current edition. I would like to get the original version.
Dr. Sheehan is engaging, informative, entertaining, and direct. I have been asked by people about my top suggested books on running. I had nothing to offer beyond 'Born to Run'. Now I have a book that I can recommend to runners and non-runners alike. It is simply a book that is good for the soul.
I bought the book hoping for tips on running technique and found very little, but I read on, captivated by his beliefs, the connections he makes to his life and his fearless confessions of feeling inadequate in non-running settings. Much has stuck with me: I recommend this book to anyone working on running. The elite runner will recognize a kindred spirit in the author, but any of us with the will to put on a pair of running shoes will find value in his meditations. The whole book is written in first-person, so it does not weary the reader with imperatives and exhortations. Instead, the parts you need seep in, to be recalled, say, on a run.
