We're Built To Go the Distance

Humans are built for distance running says the NY Times, reporting on author Christopher McDougall's new book "Born To Run."

McDougall offers his prescription for taking advantage of those innate abilities while avoiding injury:
"...slower, easier training over a long period would most likely help; so would brief walk breaks, which mimic the behavior of the persistence hunter. And running on a variety of surfaces and in simpler shoes with less cushioning can restore natural running form."
