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.

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 [...]

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.

We went to see a show last night at a a local venue, and I had several moments of gratefulness for Chi Running and Chi Walking and what they have taught me about learning to listen to my body: The band last night consisted of a banjo player, a bassist, a guitarist, and a drummer. Once during [...]

Slow Down to Listen to Your Running Form

Posted by Laura Houston on Thu Nov 26th, 2009, 0 comments

Running today made me think about a talk I attended last week, about a friend’s 70 mile kayak trip in the Florida Everglades. Someone asked him if he got bored paddling for that long, and a Florida native spoke up, saying if you learned to slow down and listen, the place comes alive; it is [...]

Making Gradual Running and Walking Progress

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