Engineering The Optimal Run: An Expert Guide To Creating The Optimal Running Experience - The Intro
What would it take to create the optimal running experience?
The ambitious pursuit of this question drives us every day at OptimalRun.com. In our quest to provide the best solutions to this question, we solicited insight from the leading experts, coaches, researchers, physical therapists, bio-mechanists and medical professionals in running. We sought out those who had world class experience, evidence based solutions and the skins on the wall to back up their conclusions.
Our goal was simply to find the best information on creating a better running experience and make it available to our tribe.
What we received knocked our socks off. Across the board the experts we reached out to were eagerto share their experience and insight. We found that this collection of individuals were not only leaders in their chosen discipline, but at their core were driven to provide solutions that empowered individuals to create the optimal running experiences.
We asked a series of questions to these experts and compiled their answers in an easy to read and share format. There were a few surprises and a few responses that are sure to engage conversation. And that is the point. If your running experience isn’t exactly what you want, start asking questions and do something about it. This guide is about taking owership of your running experience.
We are thrilled to share the insights and experience of the contributors to this guide:
In addition, we have also included an area for you to post your own experience in each question. If you found something that works, please share your experience.
We will release the questions in a series on a weekly basis, beginning on Wednesday 12/4/2012.
The first question we posted was: “If you were going to design a plan to help an athlete create a better experience, what three things would you have them focus on?”.
