This book renews Arthur Lydiard’s philosophy of jogging, just as it was 40 years ago. It is your guide to why you should jog, if you are not jogging already; how you jog, or jog better if you jog already; how it holds back the degeneration that does not necessarily have to accompany the advancing years. Jogging will not stop you growing older but it will help you to grow older more gracefully and with less loss of both physical and mental mobility.
Lydiard was ahead of his time when he invented jogging. The confirmation and proof by the experts has continued since then but perhaps the most important proof has been supplied by the countless millions who climb so regularly into their running shoes and take to the world’s streets, roads, beaches, parks and forest trails for a gentle jog for their lives.
