Running with Fluidity

Posted by Michelle Muldoon on Thu Sep 30th, 2010, 1 comments

As a runner, one of the things I look for in my own running is fluidity.  I want running to feel fluid, not just a series of lifts or swings or stances or whatever else I might have been working on while learning the Chi Running technique.  Of course all of this is necessary in [...]

Chi Running at the Air Force Marathon

Posted by Danny Dreyer on Sun Sep 19th, 2010, 2 comments

It all started when we decided to have a Chi Running booth at the 115th running of the Boston Marathon in 2011. I figured, “Well, if I’m going to be there working anyway, I might as well be running in the race.” So, I started looking for a race to run as a qualifier for [...]

Daily Practice of Chi Running Focuses

Posted by Laura Houston on Fri Sep 17th, 2010, 2 comments

Once in a while, life happens (an accident, medical or family issues, traveling, etc.)  and one is forced to stop running for a while. In my case I broke my pinky toe, when I stubbed it on a root. Stationary objects are great for practicing your y’chi, but they really hurt when you hit them! [...]

One of my blog readers recently wrote and asked what my goals are for the upcoming race… I have been going over them in my own head, but I thought the act of sharing them with my readers would be an excellent idea, to help make the goals more “real.” (Check out this article written [...]

Running Technique, Midfoot Strike and Foot Landing Options

Posted by David Stretanski on Mon Sep 13th, 2010, 10 comments

Recently there has been much discussion and debate about how to run with respect to foot strike. The advice ranges but it is in general focused to how to land the foot. Much of the advice is also purist in nature – meaning a position that there is only one ‘right’ way to land properly [...]

Running as a Body Loosener

Posted by Michelle Muldoon on Tue Sep 7th, 2010, 0 comments

I’ve been on holiday and so was my running for a lot of it!  I did a lot of driving so my body was screaming for a run when I finally got the opportunity.  Sitting in a car for long periods of time, or anywhere for that matter, does not do our bodies any good.  [...]
