Making Gradual Running and Walking Progress

Posted by David Stretanski on Mon Nov 23rd, 2009, 1 comments

The way we stand and move are habits formed over time from our life experiences.

The principle of Gradual Progress is a key principle for any change, not [...]

Running and Walking Technique Rooted In Principles

Posted by David Stretanski on Wed Nov 18th, 2009, 0 comments

When I first picked up a ChiRunning Book about four years ago – in pain, injured, frustrated and confused; I first realized my running philosophy was a bit off and then I realized my running technique was a bit off also. On the surface, ChiRunning is about adjusting running technique to improve efficiency and prevent [...]

Distance running can cause a tremendous amount of stress on the body. Yoga is now recognized as a way for runners to stretch tight muscles and help lessen running pain. Runners tend to gravitate towards power yoga and fast paced vinyasa flow. It’s wonderful to see runners now practicing yoga but this approach of stretching [...]

Before you start running it is likely you strap on a pair of running shoes that contain a number of features designed to enhance your performance and help keep you injury free.

Running as a Metaphor for Life

Posted by David Stretanski on Tue Nov 17th, 2009, 0 comments

Many of us have heard the concept of “running is a metaphor [or mirror] for life”. There have been many ways to apply and learn from this concept. Just Google the phrase and you will see many posts on the subject. A few days ago a great quote came across my path: “Tension is who [...]

Is Chi Running truly effortless running?

Posted by Danny Dreyer on Tue Nov 17th, 2009, 16 comments

I’d like to clear up a bit of confusion about Chi Running that seems to crop up every now and then. Some runners have come to Chi Running workshops expecting their running to feel effortless by the end of the class. Then they write us afterwards and complain that they didn’t feel as though they got their [...]

In the past week, I’ve gone running three times. Lately, that’s a lot for me! I’ve been making the time to get outdoors and enjoy the crisp fall mornings.

Running immediately after completing a marathon?

Posted by Richard C (Dick) Felton on Thu Nov 12th, 2009, 1 comments

I finished the Detroit Marathon on October 18th, 2009, running it in 3 hours 53 minutes – not particularly fast, however not bad for only having trained for 8 weeks completing only 500 KM of training miles. (Previous 3 months before starting 8 weeks of training for Detroit was long distance biking only = 5000KM – no running [...]
