The revised edition of the bestselling ChiRunning, a groundbreaking program from ultra-marathoner and nationally-known coach Danny Dreyer, that teaches you how to run faster and farther with less effort, and to prevent and heal injuries for runners of any age or fitness level. In ChiRunning, Danny and Katherine Dreyer, well-known walking and running coaches, provide powerful insight that transforms running from a high-injury sport to a body-friendly, injury-free fitness phenomenon. ChiRunning employs the deep power reserves in the core muscles, an approach found in disciplines such as yoga, Pilates, and T’ai Chi. ChiRunning enables you to develop a personalized exercise program by blending running with the powerful mind-body principles of T’ai Chi: 1. Get aligned. Develop great posture and reduce your potential for injury while running, and make knee pain and shin splints a thing of the past. 2. Engage your core. Shift the workload from your leg muscles to your core muscles, for efficiency and speed. 3. Add relaxation to your running. Learn to focus your mind and relax your body to increase speed and distance. 4. Make it a Mindful Practice. Maintain high performance and make running a mindful, enjoyable life-long practice. 5. It’s easy to learn. Transform your running with the ten-step ChiRunning training program.

This thesis aims to improve insight into bipedal locomotion based on the robotics and biomechanics advances. The research conducted in this thesis is mainly centered on the running motion to gain insight in a gait that remains not fully understood in the control of bipedal robots. Based on an intuitive approach, such as the one used for walking with the robot M2 by J.E. Pratt and G. Pratt, a control strategy for high-speed running with a 3D complex bipedal robot is suggested and evaluated in simulation. Taking into account biomechanics observations, such as the spring-mass model, the simulated bipedal robot is able to run from 2.7m/s up to 7m/s, to deal with external perturbations such as strongly uneven terrains and substantial external pushes, and to exhibit a very human-like gait.

Powered From Within will motivate runners and triathletes of all levels. Stories include profiles of two-time Ironman world champion Craig Alexander and his preparations for Kona 2009; three-time Paralympian and runner Gerrard Gosens; Ron Stuart who became a steeplechase world champion in his 60s after injury and polio halted his ambitions as a young athlete; Kate Rowe who became an Ironman 70.3 world champion in her 50s after taking out a $25,000 loan to fulfill her dream; and Bernie Millett who at the age of 67 runs a 3:16 marathon. Top running coaches Dave Scott-Thomas and Kevin Smith provide advice on marathon training. Age-group triathletes reveal their strategies to gain a mental advantage on race day. Female triathletes discuss their approach to the sport.
