Running into the New Year

Posted by Michelle Muldoon on Wed Jan 5th, 2011, 0 comments

In theory this is week 6 of half marathon training. As always seems to be the case when I try and train for a race, life events try to stop me. And so it has proved again. As mentioned in my last blog, early training came to a standstill when I got full blown flu ...

Running in Winter

Posted by Michelle Muldoon on Thu Dec 9th, 2010, 0 comments

I had hoped to blog about the start of my half marathon training in a bit more of an upbeat note but I find myself in Week 2 completely knocked out by a virus. I am just beginning to claw my way back to life ...

Running with Fluidity

Posted by Michelle Muldoon on Thu Sep 30th, 2010, 1 comments

As a runner, one of the things I look for in my own running is fluidity.  I want running to feel fluid, not just a series of lifts or swings or stances or whatever else I might have been working on while learning the Chi Running technique.  Of course all of this is necessary in [...]

Winter Running Plans

Those of you who follow my blog will know that I have always wanted to run a marathon.  I was unable to take part in my first planned marathon earlier this year and so I deferred my place to April 2011.  Training was due to start in November.  However, I have been doing a lot [...]

Running as a Body Loosener

Posted by Michelle Muldoon on Tue Sep 7th, 2010, 0 comments

I’ve been on holiday and so was my running for a lot of it!  I did a lot of driving so my body was screaming for a run when I finally got the opportunity.  Sitting in a car for long periods of time, or anywhere for that matter, does not do our bodies any good.  [...]

Learn to Love Running Slower

Posted by Michelle Muldoon on Mon Jun 28th, 2010, 2 comments

As a distance runner and student of running technique, I have had to learn to love running slower.  Last year, when I first started to experiment with running to heart rate, I found that I had to run a lot slower than I was used to in order to keep my heart rate down.  I [...]

There is much debate in the running community about barefoot running these days .  The author of Born to Run, Chris McDougall, a book largely responsible for the increased interest in barefoot running, was in London this week and gave a talk hosted by Terra Plana.  It was interesting to learn that he does not [...]

Running Form and Tension

Posted by Michelle Muldoon on Fri May 7th, 2010, 6 comments

I haven’t blogged for a while, very sadly my Mum passed away a month ago from breast cancer, she was too young to go and still had a lot of living left to do.  My family and I are devastated but we have to get used to learning to live without her.  I was in [...]

Running and Flexibility

Posted by Michelle Muldoon on Wed Mar 24th, 2010, 0 comments

Running is not usually known as an aid to flexibility, in fact it is notoriously known for tightening us up: tight hamstrings, tight calves, tight hip flexors and a tight back.  Well the good news is that it doesn’t have to be that way.  Seven years ago, almost to the day, I bent down to [...]
