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 ...

Like my fellow ChiRunning Instructor Bloggers, I was recently in Asheville for the ChiRunning Instructor weekend.

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

Running and Walking Technique Rooted In Principles

Posted by David Stretanski on Wed Nov 18th, 2009, 1 comments
