Another cold run – even the animals were inside

Went out for a 45 minute run yesterday lunch time round Regents Park.

There was snow on the ground and falling when I left home in the morning, but by the time I went out that had all gone and was replaced by miserable sleet and a cold wind.

To mix things up a bit (after running on the other side of the road last week) I went around the park clockwise for the first time ever – you see things so differently! At about halfway there was a hill (well, not hill but more than just an incline) I’ve never noticed it as a significant downhill when running the other way around – weird

Since I’ve been Chi-Running I have started to notice other runners form a lot more. It’s fascinating; there’s a man in Finsbury Park who looks like a frog running on his back legs, but yesterday there was a lot of men running with one arm by their side and the other bent at the elbow and swinging – I wondered if it was some kind of code, or experiment, very odd – makes me want to go up to people and ask if they know they’re doing it!

Today is a lovely lovely rest day, no aches from running (touch wood) but still have my stupid cold and the last remnants of back ache from kettlebells last week……

  1. Thats interesting that you are looking at people’s form. Since I started working on mine – I can’t help it – I see a runner and have to see how they are striking, how their posture is,etc..

    As for the bent elbow – My son started doing that! I am trying to help him break it as it is on the same side as his side cramps (Coincidence? I doubt it!!!)

    How do you like the Chi Running so far?

  2. I am loving the Chi Running, have done since I had an introductory session last year – where running was always a struggle, it now feels so much easier!

    How does your son take your advice? I was thinking it would have been nice to run with my parents when I was younger, but then I wouldn’t have listened to them however good their advice was!
