Many multisport athletes employ traditional training methods, ignoring technique while relying on volume and intensity of workouts to improve results. Renowned coach Ken Mierke has coached nine national multisport champions and placed 28 multisport athletes on Team USA. His research proves that athletes who achieve optimal technique show a remarkable difference not just in performance, but also in endurance. In this book he shows runners how to use the body's natural shock-absorption system to dramatically reduce impact stress and keep their training injury-free. By maximizing both conditioning and technique, as detailed in this book, runners can become faster, stronger, and more efficient athletes.
