Running is easy. You just put one foot in front of the other and go. So why learn the science behind it?
When you scratch the surface, you find there is more to this biomechanical and physiological phenomenon than meets the eye.
If your aim is to enhance performance and prevent injury, familiarizing yourself with the science behind running can help you achieve your goals and take more pleasure in a sport that millions enjoy worldwide
如果你的目标是提高成绩和防止受伤，那么熟悉跑步背后的科学知识可以帮助你实现目标，并在全世界数百万人喜爱的运动中获得更多乐趣 WHY RUN? There are many good reasons to run, in addition to the sheer pleasure of it. Regular running is associated with many health benefits that can improve your quality of life.
Running makes you stronger and healthier, and as your body becomes increasingly robust in response to this dynamic activity, you become less likely to develop disease or physical disability.
Recreational running can help prevent obesity, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, osteoarthritis, respiratory disease, and cancer, and improves sleep quality.
Even in low doses, running is associated with a substantial reduction in risk of death from all causes, including cardiovascular disease.
即使在低剂量下，跑步也能显著降低包括心血管疾病在内的各种原因造成的死亡风险。 The psychological benefits of recreational running include stress relief, mood boosts, and potentially protection against depression, anxiety, and dementia.
Social interaction through running groups and involvement in group events such as Parkrun also improves wellbeing.
While the health potentials involved are clearly considerable, running is not without its own risks.
In fact, certain injuries are associated specifically with running, “runner’s knee” being one example. However, there is much you can do to mitigate the risks, and that is where the science comes in.
事实上，某些损伤与跑步有关，“跑步者的膝盖”就是一个例子。然而，你可以做很多事情来减轻风险，这就是科学的意义所在。 USING THE SCIENCE As a physiotherapist I have helped thousands of runners, from novice to elite, continue with the activity they love.
My work is informed by my research into running-related injury, and I have seen time and again in my clients how an understanding of why injury occurs, and how best to recover, can improve their experience of running.
我对跑步相关伤害的研究为我的工作提供了依据，我在我的客户身上一次又一次地看到，了解为什么会发生伤害，以及如何最好地恢复，可以改善他们的跑步体验。 But the science of running can help with more than just injury prevention. If you want to improve as a runner, understanding the physiology and biomechanics involved is a game changer.
Small adjustments in form can lead to big improvements if you know what to look out for and how to address it. And even a modest strength-training programme can reap rewards on the roads, trails, or track, if you know which exercises target the key muscle groups used in running.
Runners are known for having an obsession with numbers, from tracking mileage to recording personal bests, but knowing how to use the data to maximize performance is what makes the difference.
Similarly, knowing how your body works allows you to work with it optimally. To be a better runner, you should know which types of training make you faster,
which exercises make you stronger, and which race-day strategies help you perform at your best. Jerry Ziak, my co-author on the chapter How to Train, is an experienced coach who has designed thousands of training programmes for athletes of all levels.
We hope the knowledge we share enhances your performance and training experience, and helps you enjoy a lifetime of pain-free running.
