As a runner, you strike the ground 1,000 times per mile, with a force of two to three times your body weight. You can feel that impact in the muscles, ligaments, and bone structures throughout your body. Thankfully, "Yoga for Runners" addresses both the physical and mental demands of the sport. Whether you are new to yoga or have practiced for years, "Yoga for Runners" provides you with the most effective poses--88 poses in all. Each pose is described in detail to ensure correct execution, maximizing the physical benefit and decreasing the risk of injury.
You'll learn how simple yoga techniques can be incorporated into your existing running workouts and routines to eliminate chronic aches and pains. Discover how each pose can be sequenced to address a specific need, such as strengthen and lengthen the hamstrings, strengthen and increase mobility of the hip joint, eliminate lower-back and upper-body discomfort, speed the recovery process after a practice run or a race, maintain a strong core, or just restore and rejuvenate to prepare for an upcoming event. These sequences target all troublesome muscle regions. Anatomical illustrations and descriptions explain why these poses and sequences decrease your risk of acute or chronic injury as well as why they are beneficial to your training regimen.
After just a few weeks of following "Yoga for Runners," you will feel stronger, more balanced, more in tune with your breathing, and more aware of your posture and technique. Your entire running experience--endurance, strength, breathing, and mental sharpness--will be more productive, positive, and enjoyable.

Jeff Galloway is a world-class distance runner and author of the best-selling Galloway's Book on Running. Galloway, along with Bill Rogers and Frank Shorter, was at the forefront of the running revolution of the '80s. For over 20 years, Jeff has toured the country, giving running workshops, hosting races, and lecturing to runners. About five years ago he discovered a unique way of training that allowed just about anyone to run a marathon. The secret: walk breaks. Marathons have surged in popularity in the last five years. And runners these days are different from runners in the '80s and early '90s: they want to finish a marathon. They are not obsessed (as were earlier runners) with high performance. They are having fun. This is Jeff's new book for 21st century marathoners. It has programs and advice for all levels of runners, and will show you how to run a marathon without injuring yourself or getting a divorce.
ADHD is an epidemic among young Americans, millions of whom are on a regimen of prescription drugs. Meanwhile, exercise has become a less routine part of childhood than at any time in the past. Are those two trends related? Could lack of daily exercise be a factor in ADHD?
Exercise has a neurochemical effect on the brain similar to that of the popular medications, without the unwanted side effects. Stephen C. Putnam reviews in detail the scientific literature and practical experiments showing that exercise is remarkably effective in treating ADHD. He shows how to determine the right amount of exercise, and how to motivate your children to keep up their activities.
This is not an "anti-Ritalin" book. The author acknowledges that medication is sometimes helpful and cautions that care should be taken whenever changing from one treatment to another. However, he notes that a great many children have been able to reduce medication or eliminate it entirely with a regular schedule of exercise -- greatly improving classroom performance, social life, and overall well-being.
This is hopeful, helpful information for millions of children and their parents, teachers, coaches, and counselors. Reading it will change the way you think about ADHD.
