Chi Running workshop in (rainy!) Asheville

Posted by Elizabeth Frost on Tue Sep 29th, 2009, 1 comments

Saturday was gorgeous, despite all the rain.  (Seriously, people. If you don’t live in Asheville, I can’t possibly explain the amount of rain we’ve had this year. It’s incredible, and I realized that it’s suddenly autumn and I don’t feel like I really had a true summer.) We had a great group at the workshop, [...]

What a way to start a weekend – early morning running

Posted by Elizabeth Frost on Fri Sep 18th, 2009, 4 comments

This is certainly the year of rain for Asheville. Before the sun came up this morning, I roused Oliver and myself and headed out the door for a pre-dawn running session. The misting rain felt great, and although 100% humidity is always interesting for running, listening to the air is a nice meditation. I haven’t [...]

Moving around (walking and maybe running) in Santa Fe!

Posted by Elizabeth Frost on Thu Sep 3rd, 2009, 0 comments

Hi there… Going to be in Santa Fe this weekend, and I hope to go running once or twice. I know we’ll be walking plenty, so I am planning for comfortable clothes, broken-in shoes and thinking about keeping my core engaged. Walking around all day can be either tiring or invigorating. I plan for it [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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, [...]

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 [...]

Steamy summer running with Chi Running Focuses is a-okay!

Posted by Elizabeth Frost on Fri Jul 17th, 2009, 3 comments

So, remember I last blogged about lovely crisp mornings here in Asheville? Well, I must have been mistaken. When I got finished with my short run this morning I was stretching and noticed that I was literally steaming from my head. Granted, I have a large forehead… It was steamy hot this morning, and very [...]

Running just to run

Posted by Elizabeth Frost on Mon Jul 13th, 2009, 0 comments

The great thing about Asheville is that even though it gets hot during the day, the nights are cool and bring nice crisp mornings. Sunday was like that here; it ended up in the 90s by the afternoon, but the morning was crisp. I didn’t have plans to go walk or run, but decided that [...]
