Running is perhaps the purest of all sports. It requires very little equipment. Very soon after we learn to walk we figure out its more fun to run! It gets us about quicker and it feels good to be on the move. It's a perfectly natural activity providing you with a means to keep fit and healthy throughout your life. When the demands of work and family may get you down, it's great to escape for a short while to be alone and gather your thoughts as you get back to an activity evolution has designed you to do well.
Somewhere between sprinting about for fun as a child and buying your first pair of traing shoes you can make it harder then it should be. The thought of getting a personal best can lead to habits that involve putting in the wrong kind of effort. These habits become part of your technique until you don't even know you are wasting valuable effort holding up your shoulders, tightening your neck or holding in your lower back. For many runners, injury becomes a regular inconvenience to endure. In the worst cases this will mean giving up running altogether. What should be a great way to keep fit and healthy becomes the cause of injury and frustration
If, like many runners out there, your face sports a grimace rather than a smile when you are out running, you might want to think about finding a more effortless, natural way of putting one foot in front of the other. the answer might just be Chi Running, a technique which aims to allow the body to work with gravity rather than against it.
