I'm always trying to live my life in a more mindful way, so when I stumbled mindlessly upon this book about Chi Running I felt all excited.
'ChiRunning combines the inner focus and flow of T'ai Chi with the power and energy of running to create a revolutionary running form and philosophy. The ChiRunning program increases mental clarity and focus, enhances the joy of running, and turns running into a safe and effective lifelong program for health, fitness, and well-being.'
Sounds great, doesn't it?! So I bought the book and registered for the workshop. The workshop won't start till november but the book is on my nightstand and every night I read a chapter.
It certainly helps me to run in a more mindful manner, and it got me off my iPod addiction in one swell swoop. I'm too busy listening to my body to listen to any music! Already I''m hearing my shoulders telling me they tend to tense when I'm running.
I like the idea of running from the core of my being.
And I hope to start Chi Parenting in the same way I'm learning to run.
