Last year I made my first tentative steps back into distance running. I trained for the Belfast half using a technique called Chi Running, which I hope will allow me to run better and without injury into my 50s. This technique focuses on your running form and takes a more holistic approach to running in general. I am a long way from perfecting it but already i have noticed much fewer aches and pains during and after running. I completely the Half marathon in a respectable time:
My longer term goal is to run one more full marathon (i have ran 3 big ones, London in 2000 (3.29.15), Dublin 2007 (3.15.01) and New York 2008 (3.39.15) ) under 3hrs 30mins using this new technique.
