Running Fast & Injury Free

When I first got turned onto the minimalist running regime, this e-book (yeah it sounds cheesy) was one of the most influential pieces of literature I found. I don't agree with every single point, but I identified with so many things in this book (his take on posture, his aversion to static stretching, and his take on today's shoes) that it was like things finally fell into place.

The actual website is abysmal and looks like it was designed by a 5th grader on Geocities, and the e-book formatting itself is nothing to brag about. However the content is priceless. I got this thing printed out and sprial bound, and you might end up doing the same: http://www.scribd.com/doc/13695/Gordon-Piries-Running-Fast-and-Injury-Free

Gordon Pirie is pretty awesome. I've read this pdf recently and it was very intriguing.

Agreed - I think it feels more authentic because of the unpublished nature, and its great to see runners have known how effective natural running is even before all our recent scientific studies. If you have any other recommendations let me know.
