Danny's Interview with LifeAfterPain.com - Chi Running

Danny’s Interview with LifeAfterPain.com

At the first sign of pain, most runners and walkers head for the medicine cabinet for their favorite brand of painkillers. At ChiRunning, we take the approach that pain is the body's way of telling us that something is not working as it should. In response to the all-too-common medication approach, here's a fun 30-minute interview I did with Naomi Kuttner of LifeAfterPain.com in New Zealand. It's about ChiRunning's approach to working with pain and how improving your technique can eliminate the causes of pain in running and walking.

I suffer from tight achilles which in turn it affects my plantar fasciaitis.  I have been trying the chirunning but noticed slight discomfort on the front of legs, like shins. But doesn’t hurt when I run, just to the touch. Am I doing something wrong?

What are your thoughts?

ChiRunning began to enrich my life on July 3, 2010 when I read the first 100 pages of the book and went for a run, and just focusing on ankle lift made a difference! My running life continues to transform and create joy! I smile when I run and love every minute. I am thrilled and grateful to be part of this ChiRunning community. Thank you for the opportunity to pursue becoming an Instructor.
