Mindful Monday: ChiFlying

Posted by Danny Dreyer on Sun Sep 28th, 2014, 0 comments

This week's Mindful Monday question: What do you do in your everyday life to keep your chi flowing? Here's how you can make travel easier on your mind and body. I'm writing this week's post while flying from Asheville to San Francisco. My cell phone is turned off and there's no FaceBook to distract me. So, I thought I'd write about how I keep my chi happening while flying cross-country.

The Shoe Dilemma

Posted by Danny Dreyer on Mon Sep 22nd, 2014, 0 comments

I've often told people that I could give Imelda Marcos a run for her money. She is the wife of former president of the Philippines, Ferdinand Marcos most famously known for having over a thousand pairs of shoes. Over the years I've wear-tested countless pairs of shoes, many of which have ended up in the Goodwill pile and a few have made it into my personal collection… kind of like the row of bottles at a tavern showing you a visual sample of all their beers.

Mindful Monday: Where’s Your Focus?

Posted by Danny Dreyer on Mon Sep 15th, 2014, 0 comments

I was out on a long run last weekend and noticed I was feeling sort of listless; not much energy in my legs, and not particularly feeling much fire in my heart. It was like I just found myself out on a run. I not only wasn't sure how I got there, but I wasn't sure if I really wanted to even be running. Having found myself in this situation a few times over the years, I tried to think back on what in my recent past might have led up to this rather unsettling discovery. Jeez, I teach this stuff… I should love it all the time!

Does your cadence increase when you run faster?

Posted by Danny Dreyer on Tue Sep 9th, 2014, 0 comments

A lot of people love Chi Running because we promote running more efficiently. What does that mean to you? To us it means being able to run faster or farther without it feeling more effort or more impact. What a lot of runners don't realize is that there is a big tendency to increase your cadence as you increase your speed. This is fine for sprinters because they're more focused on speed than efficiency. But if you're running anything longer than a 5K, efficiency should be near the top of your list of things to pay attention to.
