MARK CUCUZZELLA, M. D.
Add To Cart. I never become a very accomplished or fast runner, but by now I have ran 5 marathons and 4 half marathons. One thing that is annoying about running and exercise and diet in general is that there are so many pieces of contradictory advice and training programs out there. Cucuzzella adds another brick to the wall of books on these topics.
Some things I liked: 1 All his tips and the overall philosophy in the book is geared towards average people who want I only started running when I was about Some things I liked: 1 All his tips and the overall philosophy in the book is geared towards average people who want to be healthier, not just ambitious runners who only care about running faster. But he has a lot of different ideas and drills so you'll have to invest a lot of time to really understand what he is saying if you want to make full use of his tips. It's not a simple program.
I'd say this book is probably more beneficial for the somewhat experienced runner, someone who has ran at least a 10K and is looking to get more serious and improve their training without getting injured. A complete beginner might find the information overwhelming and should probably just focus on getting into a regular routine of running first before seeking out tips on running form and efficiency. Aug 06, Henk-Jan van der Klis rated it really liked it. There many books on running healthier, faster, in a flow, the zone or other fantastic book title suggestions.
Although he says he's no biologist and the book's intended to be accessible, the chapters on tendons, muscles, organs were way too detailed for me. The drills exercises at the end of each chapter are illustrated by small black-and-white pictures. Reading from an ebook version would deserve larger graphics. The author promotes bare-foot walking and running, recommends to have as lean shoes as possible that enable your feet to do the work they're made for: interacting with the soil. The book has separate chapters for running during pregnancy, running as a child or as a senior.
The large section with schedules, tips, book-internet links and an annotated list of videos to be watched online are a great added value. The title of this book pretty much says it all.

His mission is to get people moving without pain, which can mean different things for different people. Walking, jogging, slow jogging, sprinting, marathoning, ultra-marathoning, or just changing positions regularly throughout the day. Sitting is the slow death. He offers a number of exercises throughout his book for feet, hips, The title of this book pretty much says it all.

He offers a number of exercises throughout his book for feet, hips, and more that runners can use to increase their flexibility, ease of movement and decrease pain. He includes a little bit about diet and nutrition how to feed your body properly to avoid diabetes and to maintain a high level of energy. There are other books that cover each of the topics he touches on in more depth, but I really like this as a complete package. Jan 08, Christine rated it liked it.
The question is how to run pain- and injury-free and the answer, in reading this book, is very complicated. After repeated injury, doctor and running shoe store owner Mark Cucuzzella found approaches that work for him, but what he's gone through to avoid injury as a marathon runner and continues to do on a daily basis to stay healthy is enough to overwhelm all but the most serious runners. This book goes into extensive detail about running physiology and I think would be a helpful resource for p The question is how to run pain- and injury-free and the answer, in reading this book, is very complicated.
I will definitely benefit from some of the drills described in the book.
I do not think this is a good resource for casual runners or those new to running as it risks scaring people away from running before they even start. Dec 16, Tammy rated it really liked it Shelves: Lots of good information about running form, shoes, drills, nutrition, etc. I picked up the book hoping it would help with my hip pain, and the main advice in the book seems to be to slow down. I used to run minutes with my heart rate at to bpm.
This book says my max heart rate should be bpm and I should try to stay below bpm! I have to jog slower than I walk to keep my heart rate that low, but that's what I'm trying to do now. My hip doesn't hurt as bad as it used to I ho Lots of good information about running form, shoes, drills, nutrition, etc. I hope the pain will go away completely if I stick to this slow pace. Theoretically, I will be able to gradually increase the pace and maintain the same low heart rate as my body adjusts.

We'll see. One thing that bothered me is the book says to quit worrying about salt intake. I just read another article yesterday blaming high salt intake for many modern health problems! Why do we keep getting conflicting advice on salt, fat, alcohol, seemingly all aspects of nutrition?

Brief section at the end on some of his work in trying to improve health, esp. I really enjoyed competing a couple years ago in the half-marathon at the Freedom's Run he organizes each Fall, and afterward visiting his T covers a lot of ground [nutrition, injury prevention practices, lots on running form, community health initiatives I really enjoyed competing a couple years ago in the half-marathon at the Freedom's Run he organizes each Fall, and afterward visiting his Two River Treads running store.
I think of it often when consuming coffee or beer from the souvenir mug and glass i brought home from the race. Cucuzella would probably be happier if my takeaways were instead to quit overstriding and cut back on carbs, but one step at a time! Mar 14, Chad rated it it was amazing. I've always hated running. Apparently I've been doing it wrong. The author actually makes it seem possible to enjoy it. I like how he starts where you are - sitting - and recommends a slow approach, literally re- learn how to walk before you run.
I like how he admits it could take years to be able to run long distances, to take it slow and listen to your body. I really like how he explained in detail the bio-mechanics of running, how your foot is designed to work, as well as how the body process I've always hated running.
I appreciate authors not dumbing things down or glossing over the why with "just trust me". This book isn't just about running though he is somewhat evangelical on that subject but more of a handbook on holistic healthy living. Jan 28, Katherine Cobb rated it it was amazing. Don't be fooled by the title—this is not just for runners.
This book is chock full of information and helpful photos to help anyone at any age, size or fitness level move with ease. Great tips for living healthfully aside from moving too. Cucuzzella is an unconventional doctor who uses his own experience and passion for helping others to try and make a difference in a world where so many of us are prone to disease and dis-ease. His commitment to reversing that is palpable and his knowledge i Don't be fooled by the title—this is not just for runners.
