Tanaka’s method of easy running, or slow jogging,” is an injury-free approach to running that helps participants burn calories, lose weight, and even reverse the effects of Type-2 diabetes. With easy-to-follow steps and colorful charts, Slow Jogging teaches runners to enjoy injury-free activity by:
Maintaining a smiling, or niko niko in Japanese, pace that is both easy and enjoyable
Landing on mid-foot, instead of on the heel
Choosing shoes with thin, flexible soles and no oversized heel
Aiming for a pace of 180 steps per minute
And trying to find time for activity every day
Accessible to runners of all fitness levels and ages, Slow Jogging will inspire thousands more Americans to take up running and will change the way that avid runners hit the pavement.
