Update on my trail race training

Posted by Danny Dreyer on Tue Jul 28th, 2009, 5 comments

Thought I’d fill you in on my training progress for the National 10k Trail Championships. I’ve got just over a month left to train and I’ve just finished my conditioning phase which meant lots of slow aerobic distance running (mostly 1-hour runs at a comfortable pace … 120-125 heart rate). I decided to test myself [...]

Loosen, Walk, Run, Walk, Stretch

Posted by Elizabeth Frost on Wed Jul 22nd, 2009, 0 comments

I went down to Carrier Park again yesterday morning early when it was still cool. Doing the Body Looseners and a bit of ChiWalking before and after running is going to save me, I believe. Patience is certainly not one of my highest strengths, and by doing the Looseners and stretches and walking before and [...]

So, remember I last blogged about lovely crisp mornings here in Asheville? Well, I must have been mistaken. When I got finished with my short run this morning I was stretching and noticed that I was literally steaming from my head. Granted, I have a large forehead… It was steamy hot this morning, and very [...]

Running just to run

Posted by Elizabeth Frost on Mon Jul 13th, 2009, 0 comments

The great thing about Asheville is that even though it gets hot during the day, the nights are cool and bring nice crisp mornings. Sunday was like that here; it ended up in the 90s by the afternoon, but the morning was crisp. I didn’t have plans to go walk or run, but decided that [...]

Running with a heart rate monitor

Posted by Danny Dreyer on Thu Jul 9th, 2009, 19 comments

Well, I finally did it. After 38 years of running I finally bought myself a heart rate monitor. Why now? After that many years of running you’d think by now I would be able to Body Sense everything I needed to know to run injury-free and run long distances without burning myself out. The truth [...]

Seattle was fun!

Hi all! Seattle was great. The Expo was fantastic (great to see all of you runners there!) and the weather on race day was wonderful; sunny and fairly cool. Sarah and I were in a rearward corral and waited almost an hour to cross the start line, but we kept a positive attitude and enjoyed [...]

Should I Monitor My Heart Rate While Training?

Posted by Danny Dreyer on Mon Jul 6th, 2009, 3 comments

Yes, it is important to monitor your heart rate so that you have an objective measurement of how hard your body is working when you run. Being able to feel whether you're going too fast, too slow, or just right is an important skill to have, especially on long training runs or in race conditions. ...

Trail Running and Poison Ivy

Posted by Danny Dreyer on Tue Jun 23rd, 2009, 14 comments

I’ve received a lot of ChiRunning email lately responding to my blogs about trail running. One topic that has popped up more than once is poison ivy, that nasty little plant that loves to make your skin look like an overcooked cheese pizza. I’m highly allergic to it, so I can empathize with all of [...]

A Chi Running Love Letter

Just wanted to say that after reading Chi Running and trying it for a week, I felt like it finally "clicked", and I cannot even remember how to run the old way (which I did faithfully for over 20 years).
