• FREE Running Intro to ChiRunning, Pose Method & Natural Running

    DeAnza Cove-Parking Lot at First Stop Sign

    Introduction to ChiRunning (http://www.chirunning.com/), Natural Running (http://www.posetech.com/services/OzzieGontang.html) and Pose Method (http://www.posetech.com/services/OzzieGontang.html) with Ozzie Gontang (http://mindfulness.com). Learn to run with regular running shoe, minimalist running shoes using the form and style used by Barefoot Runners. The principles Ozzie wrote about back in the late 90's have become the "primary principle of barefoot running." (http://www.mindfulness.com/2009/11/24/mindful-running-ya-never-know-your-impact/) Easy 2 to 4 mile run while practicing the principles of my running friends: ChiRunning (Danny Dreyer), Natural Running (Danny Abshire), Barefoot Running (Barefoot Ken Bob Saxton/Lee Saxby) and Pose Method (Nicholas Romanov). Several stops along the way to teach techniques for injury prevention. Check out Ozzie's blog on Mindful Running (http://www.mindfulness.com/category/mindful-running/) which has a lot of articles compiled on running and marathoning. Check out local coach Ben Boyd's site: Effortless Running (http://effortlessrunning.com). A good place to get the basics or to get a better understanding of ChiRunning, Natural Running or Pose Method. Also where the concepts are put into practice right away during a 2 to 4 mile run. Teaching students these methods that to run with a quick cadence allows less impact and therefore less injuries. As the Intro sessions progress there will be groups that do social 6 or social 8 miles runs so that one can practice as these slower speeds the quicker cadence and the proper form for ChiRunning, Natural Running and Pose Method. The basic understanding is that the ball/heel/ball form of running is the same at slower speeds so that when ready one can increase their speed by simply leaning from the ankle while still maintaining the cadence that was practiced at the slower speed. Getting the form and style right at a slower speed will translate directly to the same form and style at a fast speed. Simply: one learns to fall gracefully at a faster speed with a continued graceful recovery with each step

  • Balboa Park Monday Night Trail Run

    Hall of Champions Sports Museum

    PHOTO: Post-run "Cheers to Beers" shenanigans. Join us!!! BIG NEW UPDATE!!! We all get used to going to our weekly run. Same run time, same run place. Most of the time it seems pointless to RSVP to a run that regulars know you'll be at anyway. BUT NOW THERE IS A REASON TO RSVP! Every week, those who RSVP will be entered into a raffle for a free beer of their choosing at that night's brewery. No problem if you forget to RSVP, you can run, do the core workout, and grab a post-run drink, same as always... But if you do RSVP, you could win some sweet free post-run suds. It is getting dark early so we are saying goodbye to the trails until springtime. Instead will be logging some faster miles on the flat-ish winter course. I'll be posting course maps soon, but just a heads up that you won't have to worry about powder hill for a while and there will be no more playing in the dirt so don't be afraid to bring out those nice new shiny kicks that you've been stashing away! The Meetup details: We will meet up at 6:00 pm in front of what was formerly known as the Hall of Champions (in/near Pan American Plaza) and start running at 6:15. We generally trickle in, so if you are the only one there at 6:05, wait a few minutes and more will come. After the run (~7:00 pm), we have a core workout that focuses mostly on your core and back muscles. The core workout finishes with body-weight squats, which increase in number by two a week so we'll break 100 mark by the end of the year! Bring a towel or yoga mat to keep you off the damp grass. The run is followed by a visit to one of the many surrounding breweries for drinks and fun. In the spirit of discovery and change of pace, we will rotate around a growing list of great places including but not limited to: Belching Beaver Barn Mike Hess Modern Times Rip Current Eppig Thorn St. Pariah Hillcrest Ballast Point Poor House Fall Brewing Second Chance If you have a favorite core exercise or craft beer establishment let me know and we'll give it a shot. Join us for a quintessential San Diego evening of running, Balboa Park, and craft Beer!
