The Alexander Technique - run like a Kenyan
  
What have the Kenyan runners got that we haven't?  Maybe
it's something natural, something we were born with, that
they've still got but we've lost.
 
After all, we all knew how to run when we were younger: if
you want to see good, natural running in this country watch
girls before they reach their teens, before they've become
aware of their bodies.  Boys lose it sooner because they
start to run in a way that they think looks, or feels,
"cool" or "tough".
 
How can we get it back? There are eight pages on "how to
run" in a book on running I recently browsed, but nowhere
does it say to just run the way nature intended you.  And I
bet the Kenyans don't have to read it. 
 
The Alexander Technique gives us back the effortless,
economic running we had when we were young. 
 
"The Alexander Technique makes running far easier."  Tarquin
Cooper in the Daily Telegraph:
