Courir l ger Light Feet Running
Ce livre explique aux coureurs comment optimiser leur foulée pour qu'elle soit plus légère, plus souple, plus efficace. A la clé : davantage de plaisir, de meilleures performances et moins de blessures. Il y a deux types de foulées chez les coureurs : la foulée coureur-marcheur (attaque du sol par le talon, jambe tendue) et la foulée médio-pied (attaque du sol par le milieu du pied, jambe pliée). Les champions ont quasiment tous une foulée médio-pied. Elle est plus efficace. Elle respecte l'anatomie, réduit le risque de blessure, offre une grande marge de progression en termes de performance. Surtout, elle donne de meilleures sensations. Plus légère, elle décuple le plaisir de courir. Après avoir décrit les 5 points techniques de la foulée médio-pied, l'auteur explique comment la mettre en pratique en fonction de son allure (jogging, soutenue, rapide). Il propose ensuite un programme de 10 semaines pour réussir la transition d'une foulée coureur-marcheur à une foulée médio-pied.
Born to Run
At the heart of Born to Run lies a mysterious tribe of Mexican Indians, the Tarahumara, who live quietly in canyons and are reputed to be the best distance runners in the world; in 1993, one of them, aged 57, came first in a prestigious 100-mile race wearing a toga and sandals. A small group of the world's top ultra-runners (and the awe-inspiring author) make the treacherous journey into the canyons to try to learn the tribe's secrets and then take them on over a course 50 miles long. With incredible energy and smart observation, McDougall tells this story while asking what the secrets are to being an incredible runner. Travelling to labs at Harvard, Nike, and elsewhere, he comes across an incredible cast of characters, including the woman who recently broke the world record for 100 miles and for her encore ran a 2:50 marathon in a bikini, pausing to down a beer at the 20 mile mark.

Understanding the I Ching
The West's foremost translator of the I Ching, Richard Wilhelm thought deeply about how contemporary readers could benefit from this ancient work and its perennially valid insights into change and chance. For him and for his son, Hellmut Wilhelm, the Book of Changes represented not just a mysterious book of oracles or a notable source of the Taoist and Confucian philosophies. In their hands, it emerges, as it did for C. G. Jung, as a vital key to humanity's age-old collective unconscious. Here the observations of the Wilhelms are combined in a volume that will reward specialists and aficionados with its treatment of historical context--and that will serve also as an introduction to the I Ching and the meaning of its famous hexagrams.
