“The Once and Future Way to Run”

Could it really be this simple? In a New York Times Magazine article from a few days ago entitled, “The once and future way to run”, Christopher McDougall explains how to do an exercise from the 1800’s, called the “100-Up”, that he promises will improve your running form and make you less prone to injury. A video also shows McDougall demonstrating the exercise himself and talking about the proper form. Watch it (The Lost Secret of Running) but beware…what seems like a fairly easy exercise, is not easy at all after repeating it about 40 times! Although I could only do it (before losing my form) about 55 times, I will keep trying to do a few more each time! Try it, and let me know what you think.
