Are you Injured and Unable to Run?
Are you currently suffering from an injury and are unable to run? The "100 Up Exercise" maybe able to help you keep your fitness and improve your running technique while you are recovering. If you can walk without pain, you can probably do this simple but effective drill. And even if you don't have an injury, you may still want to do this exercise as it will help strengthen and develop your running abilities and technique.
The 100 Up Exercise was created by Walter George in 1874 while he was working as a chemist's apprentice and could only train during lunch hour. He developed the 100 Up Exercise and practiced it daily.
By year 2 of doing this exercise, he was the fastest amateur miler in England. By year 5, he held multiple world records for various distances up to 10 miles.

The first one is from an article Christopher McDougall (Born to Run) did with the NY Times. He refers to the 100 Up Exercise as "the lost secret of running":
