Walking with some happiness and mindfulness

Posted by Elizabeth Frost on Tue Aug 25th, 2009, 6 comments

I took Oliver for a solid 45 minute walk this morning. (That’s my cover for saying that I went for a 45 minute walk this morning.) It was great. The mornings have been fresh and crisp around here lately and it’s such a nice time to walk. Plus, it makes me feel better knowing I [...]

It’s Trail Racing Week!

Posted by Danny Dreyer on Mon Aug 24th, 2009, 3 comments

Blog 8/24/09 Well this is it…the week I’ve been waiting for. The USATF National Trail Championships are this Saturday. I’ve booked my hotel room and downloaded a map of the course and I’m ready to roll. Last Saturday I did a Time Trial on my practice course. It’s roughly 6 miles long and very hilly [...]

running a little bit at a time

Posted by Elizabeth Frost on Thu Aug 20th, 2009, 0 comments

The crazy rainy and muggy weather has made for some seriously sweaty running workouts. This morning Oliver and I ran about 2.5 miles together, which included about 1/3 mile walking to warm up/cool down. I’ve been really practicing keeping my feet loose when I walk, around the office or at the grocery or wherever. I’ve [...]

A Great Midfoot Strike Shoe

Posted by Danny Dreyer on Tue Aug 11th, 2009, 25 comments

Well, it had to happen. One of the best all-round running shoes has gone the way of the dodo bird. The New Balance 790 is no longer in production. I’ve been touting it’s attributes and urging anyone who would listen, to buy the shoe if they we’re serious about finding a shoe that was truly [...]

Trail Running at its Best

Posted by Danny Dreyer on Tue Aug 11th, 2009, 3 comments

While teaching in Denver this weekend I took advantage of the opportunity to visit some old friends, some I haven’t seen since I left the area ten years ago. After spending most of my childhood in the Denver area, I moved to Boulder where I went to college and lived for the next 32 years. [...]

Gathering and Issuing: Energy management for distance running and walking

Posted by Katherine Dreyer on Mon Aug 10th, 2009, 0 comments

I'd like to introduce a principle of T'ai Chi that is not mentioned in either the ChiRunning or ChiWalking books. The principle is called Gathering and Issuing. This principle, or "law," provides the underpinnings of energy management which is different from energy efficiency, because it governs how you manage your expenditure of energy when you're ...

Chi Running + Oliver the dog

Posted by Elizabeth Frost on Fri Jul 31st, 2009, 1 comments

Yesterday morning I got an itch to go for a quick run, but also needed to get the dog exercised. LIGHT BULB! Take the dog running with you! Well, he’s just now 6 mos old so I’ve been waiting until he gets a bit bigger. But I figured it couldn’t hurt and he certainly has [...]

Chi Running in thin air

Posted by Elizabeth Frost on Tue Jul 28th, 2009, 4 comments

I was in Colorado this weekend for a friend’s wedding, and proudly brought my running gear to head out for a short run on Saturday morning. Denver is the Mile High City: elevation 5, 280. I grew up there, so I have a fair advantage of a few more red blood cells than sea-level dwellers, [...]

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 [...]
