The 20MR Episode 62: Chi Basics #3: "How to use and improve proper posture"


Welcome to another Chi Running discussion in Episode 62. But before we get into that, we share a recent trip home to Wallace, the place I lived for most of my growing-up years. I caught up with family, ate some seafood and even literally picked up a piece of family history. Listen in for the details.

After sharing my plans for the week, we get into the issue of posture and Chi Running. The basics and benefits are simple:
  1. Lengthen your neck.
  2. Lengthening your neck results in greater lung capacity.
  3. Use your rear-view mirror to reinforce this concept.
  4. Whenever you think about it, lengthen your neck, regardless of the place/time.
  5. It's all about defeating gravity.
I also share some information from Jeff, over at the Run2feelyoung blog. Jeff is working on breaking 4 hours for his next marathon, as am I.

Coach Jeff from way down in Australia checks in with some information on "Monster workouts." We discuss three of them from episode 12 of his show, The Running Podcast. Thanks, Jeff, for your support and information.

Finally, roadrunn3r checks in with some nice comments at iTunes. If you have not left a review, why not go over to iTunes right now and leave a quick word? I certainly appreciate it. And as always,

Thanks for sharing some of the road with me,
