Chi Running


I have almost finished reading this book and so far have really liked the principles that it teaches and the methodology seems sound. Yes this was one of my items to encourage me to train for the marathon. Over the past month while reading it I have been trying to practice some of the exercises while taking Charlie out for his walks or while I am showering and getting ready in the morning. I was liking how I felt doing my little practices but had not really run any distance. This morning was my first go and actually applying the princples to my run and WOW!! First I was able to run 5.5 miles after not doing really any form of exercise for about a month, Second I finished feeling good and relaxed and not sore anywhere and Third I actually was more stretched out and relaxed than when I had started. So I am going to continue working on my Chi Running and see if I enjoy running more and can make my goal of a 4 hour marathon. You can find out more about the technique at their website
