Running in the Right Direction

“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”

                                                             ― Martin Luther King Jr.

I found my running pace has been slow and struggle like many of my runners and friends this winter. Last Saturday, I did the Chi Running level II workshop. My form was off and my cadence was slow. This week, I ran my short runs (5 miles) using the metronome at 180 beats and focus on my form. What a change, my speed picked up big time. Even today, Kim noticed my running had improved on the long run. Most important it felt great. Sometimes you need someone else to look at your form put on your right path. I know it will get better and reach my goal for the endurance races this summer and fall.
