I came across this book, The 5 Step Method for enjoying injury free and faster running as shared by Author Brad Beer in You CAN Run Pain Free! (c) 2015 My Back’s Physio Australia Pty Ltd.

Step 4: The Importance of Hip Stability: Running with a stable pelvis is critical in unlocking your true running potential.
Step 5: The Power of Rest: The often neglected but mandatory rest session is explored in detail in this step. This is the ‘glue’ that holds steps 1-4 together in your quest to run pain free!
