When most people use the words running and performance in the same sentence, images of speed and podium finishes come up. We think that’s a very limited use of the word, and we’re here to set the record straight and give “performance” some room to breathe.
Conditioning is all about toning your muscles and strengthening structurally weak areas in your body. When you run correctly you naturally strengthen the muscles that provide support while relaxing muscles no longer needed for propulsion.
I owe it to ChiRunning. If I hadn’t read your book, I would have been finished after the 400 meter dash. I am going to read it again and use the principles in my coaching. I told everyone I talked to at the meet about ChiRunning and I’m sure there will be some converts after my “miraculous recovery.”
