DR. SHEEHAN ON RUNNING. by George Sheehan, M.D.
Running as understood and practiced by a heart specialist who began running at 45. Prior to become running, he was concerned with disease; after he was interested in health. Said another way, he notes, the medical world may be more concerned with repairing than preventing, and he finds running can be a preventative form of health. Still, he notes what to do about running injuries that do occur but that some can have their origin in the foot, and that simple foot pads can reduce or solve issues. He notes that not all persons will become runners in the pure sense but some may run as part of other sports. He teaches by way of sharing his experiences through philosophical musings. Drawings, 204 pages.

FITNESS AFTER FORTY. by Hal Higdon.
How to get into shape and how to stay in shape for the best years in your life. The human body reaches its peak of performance at different ages depending on the activity, but an accepted rule-of-thumb for men for many activities is at 26 years. The decline is not abrupt, however, as shown in charts provided in the book. For instance, a marathoner at age 40 (who of course must be fit) will take only about 9 minutes longer than a 30-year old to run that 26+ miles. Lots of examples are given about energy expenditure from different activities but the end result is that with fitness you can continue to perform athletically after forty and well beyond to your personal satisfaction. So, why not do it--with the help of this book? Charts, 262 pages.
