Achieved sub-2 hour Half Marathon with Chi Running

Just a very brief update and message of thanks to the Chi Running Team.

I narrowly missed out on going under two hours at the Bristol half marathon in September – 2hr and 26 seconds! I followed your Half Marathon race plan, and your advice, to the letter. At mile 9 to 10, I decided to lean more and try and relax more – and it when I looked at my watch, that mile had taken 9 mins and 28 secs. Aaaggghhh that had not been my plan.

Anyway, last weekend I had another half marathon – the last of this year – and I have to say I couldn’t get excited about it at all – even during the race I felt what could perhaps be described as relaxed .... and guess what? I did it – indeed my time was 1hr 58 mins and 40 sec and I was delighted.

So now it’s 3 or 4 months of strength and conditioning work, and practicing Chi Running techniques, so that I can be even faster next year...
