Running With A Team

Posted by Ryan Miller on Thu Dec 17th, 2009, 0 comments

One of my favorite things about running has always been running with a team. I enjoy the quiet solitude of running alone as well, but there is something special about running on a team. Many of my deepest friendships have been formed with high school and college teammates. I have fond memories of ‘the good [...]

Running Form: the Key to Uphill running (part two)

Posted by Keith McConnell on Thu Dec 17th, 2009, 0 comments

Continuing  my Uphill running effort at Mt. Ashland, my ChiWalking identity soon became the major player in its collaboration with ChiRunning. It seemed a rational strategy to conserve energy for the many miles ahead by ChiWalking at a fast pace rather than ChiRunning at a slow pace. That seemed to be the way I could [...]

In my last post the plan was to follow a pain free marathon training program from ChiRunning in order to prepare for the Nashville Marathon on April 24th, 2010, and I have started that training which is now into the fourth week of base training, with a slight twist. Just before the posting of my last [...]

Running Motion for a Midfoot Strike

Posted by David Stretanski on Mon Dec 14th, 2009, 8 comments

In ChiRunning, the approach is to land midfoot (full-foot) under your column and create a wheel slightly behind your column with your heels/feet. Visually, this running motion is similar to the Road Runner cartoon. To create this wheel, the focus is to allow the knee to bend and to not consciously lift the knee. Lifting [...]

Running as a Practise

Posted by Michelle Muldoon on Wed Dec 9th, 2009, 0 comments

A student said to me during the week, when we were talking about their running form, “I don’t think I can change.”  I just want to say to anyone out there learning ChiRunning that you absolutely can change. You have it within your power.  If you are diligent about practising the form focuses as often [...]

Running Form: The Key to Uphill Running

Posted by Keith McConnell on Fri Dec 4th, 2009, 1 comments

Running uphill can be a real challenge – and it can also be a very positive experience. Recently I completed the Mt. Ashland Half Marathon which has an elevation increase of well over a mile and has almost no level or downhill sections. To clarify what I mean by “running” when I talk about uphill [...]

Running Form and Relaxing your Lower Legs

Posted by Michelle Muldoon on Fri Dec 4th, 2009, 0 comments

It’s week 4 of marathon training and it’s not been a good week as I managed to pick up one of the many bugs which seem to be affecting everyone I know, as a result I wasn’t able to run for a week – a whole week!  Running is part of my life and now that I [...]

Running with a metronome can help you stay light on your feet

Posted by Danny Dreyer on Thu Dec 3rd, 2009, 0 comments

Have you ever been out on a run and felt that the weight on your feet was heavier than usual? I'm not just talking about the day after eating a serious Thanksgiving meal … sometimes I experience this heaviness if I haven't had enough “down time” or if I run at a time of day that I'm not used to ...

Running in the cold mornings of winter is exhilarating

Posted by Elizabeth Frost on Tue Dec 1st, 2009, 6 comments

As readers, you might get bored of how ecstatic I am after running. It’s not always that way, but recently, I have been truly euphoric after each running workout. Why? Because I love to move my body, to be in control of how my feet touch the ground, where my eyes lead me, how my [...]

Running pain hurts in more ways than one

Posted by Hazel Wood Master Instructor on Tue Dec 1st, 2009, 0 comments

Like my fellow ChiRunning Instructor Bloggers, I was recently in Asheville for the ChiRunning Instructor weekend. You have probably read about the incredible running experiences we had and what a wonderful opportunity it was for us all to focus even more on our running form. It was a happy band of midfoot strike runners that’s [...]
