running made me sore?!

Posted by Elizabeth Frost on Thu Apr 30th, 2009, 1 comments

I didn’t realize it until this afternoon, but it appears I really did something funky with my body when I was running yesterday. Going up the stairs today at work is semi-painful. What did I do? My right adductor, medial quad and glute are sore. What on earth did I do? It’s a puzzler, but [...]

running on a beautiful morning

Posted by Elizabeth Frost on Wed Apr 29th, 2009, 1 comments

I can’t get over how lovely the mornings are this time of year… Brynn and I hauled ourselves out of bed this morning at met @ 6.30 to fit in a quick running workout before work. We did this route, which we’ve done before… it’s around town and pretty consistently hilly. We ran it in [...]

Running hills can be HARD

Posted by Elizabeth Frost on Mon Apr 27th, 2009, 0 comments

It was an absolutely stunning day yesterday. I got out on my running route at 8.30 am, when it was still cool. I ran this very hilly 6.16 mile route. It’s all uphill for the first part and then all downhill for the 2nd part. The downhill run is more gradual than the uphill portion, [...]

How is Chi Running Like Playing the Fiddle?

Posted by Danny Dreyer on Mon Apr 27th, 2009, 6 comments

Funny you should ask that. I was just out running this morning and came up with the answer. Since I moved here to Western North Carolina almost three years ago, I’ve been learning how to play the fiddle (when in Rome). I have a great fiddle teacher named Jamie Laval and I highly suggest you [...]

A Trip Back to Our Roots

Posted by Danny Dreyer on Tue Apr 21st, 2009, 2 comments

 For Spring Break our family traveled to the San Francisco Bay Area where ChiRunning was conceived and launched. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing many of our old friends and doing a little sightseeing, which for me means trail running in the Marin Headlands, home to arguably some of the most beautiful trail runs in the world. [...]

great run this afternoon… long, too!

Posted by Elizabeth Frost on Mon Apr 20th, 2009, 2 comments

Howdy folks. The weather in AVL is lovely… and Brynn convinced me to go running with her and I am pleased as a pea to say: we ran 5.5 miles, it was awesome, and my knee really isn’t bothering me. WHAT? I know, I can hardly believe it. I won’t say too much, cause it’s [...]

Easter was on Sunday… and I went running!

Posted by Elizabeth Frost on Fri Apr 17th, 2009, 0 comments

everyone knows that! My friend Brynn and I went running for a quick second around Biltmore Forest neighborhood, a lovely area with little traffic and pretty lawns. We took it easy, and I felt pretty good. I wasn’t sore after running: we only ran about 22 minutes, but it was long enough to feel productive, [...]

Running Intervals on Trails (cont.)

Posted by Danny Dreyer on Tue Apr 14th, 2009, 0 comments

Here’s an add-on to my last blog about running one-minute intervals. In the last half of this workout, depending on how I feel, I’ll begin extending the “racing” intervals to two minutes instead of one. I still keep the “resting” intervals by running in 1st gear for a minute. (Just as a side note, I [...]

Still running … working on running form and trying to smile.

Posted by Elizabeth Frost on Fri Apr 10th, 2009, 2 comments

hi folks… how are you all? I have been running, a few times, though nothing too long. I have also taught ChiRunning twice recently,  and it’s so completely satisfying. Trying to teach running is making me realize how much ChiRunning really is a process. I give myself a hard time for not being perfect with [...]
