No Pain and Lots to Gain from good Running Form.

Just because some people believe running must be hard doesn't mean it has to be, in fact it's the opposite! 

Running does NOT have to be hard, just ask any experienced Chi Runner and they will tell you how easy and enjoyable their running is. There is No Pain and Lots to Gain from ChiRunning!

Running Technique: Ankle Lift, Knee Bend & Torso Rotation

Some good work last night with the group at the practice meet in Cork.  The focus was on ankle lift and knee bend and we got some torso rotation in too as it can be very challenging to integrate into running so the more practice the better, remember it's all about gradual progress.

Next weeks practice meet will focus on torso rotation so that should be fun, jiving and walking fast to feel the rotation in motion. We'll practice on the flat and on a few gradual hills as well.
