      The last time I went on a run I blew out my right hamstring. I've gone through numerous books like Ready to Run since my injury. Not a single book has any information to assist with rehabbing a hamstring strain back into "running shape."Ready to Run has run back to the library. There are a lot of things in the book but nothing helpful at this moment.

    • Viv JM says:

      Lots of very useful information - now to put it into practice!

    • John Spillane says:

      I've taken this thing completely to heart. The difference in my plantar fasciitis from one Voodoo floss band wrap session on my right foot is insane; left foot still brittle and spikey as heck when I get out of bed. Love the stretches/mobs, zero drops for walking, emphasis on going barefoot, electrolytes, compression gear, never sitting, and think this was life changing. Couldn't care less if non-friends/fam give it a try, but it deserves five stars. P.S. read the entire thing on my three tube s [...]

    • Bálint says:

      Absolutely loved this book. After having told by many doctors, physiotherapist, chiropractors, etc. that nothing can be about my knee apart from just "stop running", now I have hope that I can "fix myself". The book offers numerous strechning and mobilizing exercises that one needs to practise daily, but it looks promising. My next order of business now is to reread the whole book and make thorough notes, then build a stretching plan for myself and start doing it. I should see results in a month [...]

    • Jeff Namadan says:

      As always, K-Star is spot on. Now I just need to commit to what he prescribes. It's only 10 minutes a day, I can find that much time though the real results come from more time. Baby steps (no pigeon feet allowed!)

    • Diane says:

      I've read several books about running, all helpful in their own way, but in terms of giving the reader fantastic exercises to increase their mobility, this is the best I have come across. I read the entire book, but one could skip to the back where the author explains his "12 standards" and gives tests the reader can do to determine where he or she does not meet the standards. The last section, section 3, is a series of mobility exercises tied to each standard. You do have to go back and forth a [...]

    • Christieclaireus says:

      This is a must read for anyone who enjoys running or athletics. Reading this turned on a lightbulb in my brain about how to approach running, and really any kind of athletic training, in a healthy way that will provide longevity. I'm not sure I would have the motivation to make some of these changes without injury, but it would be so much better to learn to practice some of the things taught in this book BEFORE injury to hopefully avoid it. Thanks Geoff Finley for sharing, I'm so glad I read it! [...]

    • Hitessh Panchal says:

      Okie Dokie, Maybe this book is Right, But i am the wrong person for it. It teaches , how a seasoned athlete can avoid injuries while running. there were many good stretches , that were new and good.If you are already a marathon runner, use it . If you are casual runner, this book will be of little help.Looking forward to read the author's next book though "Deskbound: Sitting is the new Smoking"

    • Mark says:

      Great Book packed full of information, some old, some new, mostly all useful.

    • Keith Marran says:

      I found this book to be full of very helpful tidbits to prevent injury, increase my running power, and move through life more solidly and comfortably. There's a whole chapter dedicated to shoes so I now know exactly what I want and don't want out of a running shoe. If you're looking for an inspiring "you can do it" book about running, this isn't it. This is the book that will keep you running your whole life. He includes exercises for your whole body, so it is a book I will reference a lot. But [...]

    • Craig says:

      My primary goal was to find information on improving flexibility and maintaining / strengthening joints and back. The sections on the damage done to our bodies by years and years of sitting (past and present) were / are downright scary. But I can vouch for the truth of the damages. Great advice is presented to begin to reverse and correct those damages. May have to purchase the book to keep it on hand as a valuable reference too. Now on to watching some of the author's youtube vids for more info [...]

    • Lowell Paige Bander says:

      "All humans should be able to perform basic maintenance on themselves."A fantastic book on avoiding running injuries, in a style very similar to Starrett's "Becoming a Supple Leopard." That is, if you incur an injury, it isn't because you need more expensive shoes or you need to stop running -- it's because you are insufficiently mobilized, or have bad motor patterns, or are dehydrated, have shoes with too much heel.

    • Travis says:

      An instructive manual on the lifestyle, mobility, and biomechanical factors that lead to a running life plagued by injury, and how to address them on a daily basis. Useful for not only amateur runners, but those who have to run for a living or for other sport. A must read, and a great reference guide with a multitude of mobility exercises and lifestyle tips to help the modern day problems caused by sedentary living.

    • Anthony Michel says:

      Great infos but the writing is very American with the author bragging for half of the book on how much this book is gonna change your life rather than actually starting the book. It could be much shorter . But like I said the info in it are awesome!

    • Joe Koennecke says:

      Great book to have on the shelf. Kelly takes basic concepts from his other books and condenses them down into one short, easy to read volume with a targeted focus for runners. Everyone that runs needs to read this and live by it. New shoes won't solver your problem but this book might.

    • Joseph P. Stutzenburg says:

      GoodVery good book for anyone whom wants to reduce overuse injuries, the video link don't work any longer, but still very informative.

    • Jessica says:

      Five stars for now - will see in a couple months if it works!

    • Bas says:

      Lots of overlap with supple leopard, but some good tests to identify weaknesses with running mechanics.

    • Samuel W. says:

      If your tired of nagging injuries limiting or stopping your runs, then this book will give you a range of methods to attack the underlying issues. Now in my 50's and attempting to referee over 200 soccer games a year, I've had trouble maintaining an injury free season. Working all day in a cubicle was not helping matters. Kelly Starrett has useful information that anyone can implement. And while we all need a day off to heal, his regiment is a daily combo of health tips, exercise tips and self m [...]

    • Saleh says:

      This is one of those that you wish you read before starting running and accumulating injuries that halt your off and on seasons. Though written in good spirit of a chiropractor and a pioneer in mobility, it gets too extreme at times with material references from Supple Leopard, which I don't think all runners are interested in, may be so, Crossfitters though!

    • Jon Barr says:

      12 things to work on to help ensure you can run without injury. Quite helpful.

    • Greg Hickey says:

      Physical therapist, CrossFit coach and best-selling author Dr. Kelly Starrett partners with longtime endurance magazine editor T.J. Murphy to address the problems of runners across all sports. Given that 80% of runners injure themselves each year, a new perspective on the capacities required for the movement is long overdue. Starrett wisely avoids dispensing too much advice on running technique, instead offering a few tips and a list of resources for runners to consult on this subject. Instead, [...]

    • Claire says:

      If you are a runner, you should definitely read this book. Chances are you're leaving a lot of your potential performance on the table whether from injuries, poor mechanics, or lack of mobility. Dr. Starrett (physiotherapist and coach) gives you a road map for addressing all of that. T.J. Murphy offers a runner's perspective in the "Runner to Runner" sections.I am not a runner or an athlete, but I'm a fan of Kelly Starrett's mobility work. I borrowed this book to see if he talked about proper fo [...]

    • Lexi Nicholas says:

      From my perspective, Ready to run: Unlocking your Potential to Run Naturally is an amazing book that I highly reccommend . This book is narrated by Kelly Starret who is a former runner. He teaches many runners and other athletes that are injury prone or that are currently injured. He believes that if you do a few of these simple stretches, it will cure any injury that has taken over your life, and it will also help prevent injuries in the upcoming future. Kelly goes into detail with the stretche [...]

    • Meredith says:

      The philosophy behind this book is one to which I am attuned. Like Nia Shanks, Dr. Kelly Starrett believes you shouldn't push yourself to the absolute brink and that pain is a warning sign that there is a problem with your technique or your body mechanics that needs to be immediately addressed rather than ignored and "powered" through. It is so refreshing to see this in exercise culture rather than the destructive imperatives that will only result in permanent injury. Starrett has 12 standards i [...]

    • Will Marshall says:

      Although I only gave it four stars, this is a great book and should be recommended reading. It provides a wealth of information on running efficiency and rehab/rehabilitation exercises that are worth it whether you are a runner or not. It does not, however, deserve five stars. I come from a track and field background and now work in strength and conditioning. This book is very obviously written for the crossfit crowd, which is neither a negative or positive. Just keep this in mind when reading t [...]

    • Bonnie says:

      I'm intrigued by the standards that he lays out and have already been trying to meet them using his stretches and exercises. It's hard to say if it will truly work and make me feel more ready to run, but I am already encouraged by the progress I've made after a week as I'm definitely finding much more flexibility and am getting closer to passing a few of the "tests" he's laid out. Some tests, though, are going to require some time (looking at you ankle range of motion!). I'm also currently injur [...]

    • Paul J says:

      The book is centred on twelve standards that you should be applying to your training and daily routine and continuously working to achieve, maintain and improve. For the layman the language and presentation is very easy to understand, and the mobility exercises include step-by-step images on how to perform them. You may have heard of a book called Becoming a Supple Leopard also by Kelly Starrett: Ready to Run acts as a more focused, easier-to-digest version of Supple Leopard aimed at runners (if [...]

    • Ryan says:

      Humans were born to run. But we weren't born to sit all day. And if you sit all day without doing regular "maintenance" then go try and train for a marathon, you're likely to get injured. If you're like me, that's what led you to read this book. I got Achilles tendinitis after I upped my running gradually (or so I thought) from 50-60 miles a month to 90-110. This book details 12 "standards" of form and fitness that are supposed to help you run faster, with good form, and without injury. Some of [...]

    • adrienna says:

      I downloaded the Kindle version of Ready to Run after learning about the book at a Crossfit workshop about running. The Kindle edition needs re-edited, but overall, I found it interesting. I disagree with some of the content (the insistence on flat shoes, for example, although I do wear 4mm drop shoes so close to flat), but the focus on mobility and running throughout your life are things I'm very interested in right now. I intend to use this book as a resource going forward -- lots of good mobi [...]
