Coach Steve builds active recovery weeks with lower intensity and volume into our training schedule to give our bodies a chance to repair and refresh.
After the usual announcements, Coach Steve went through the ChiRunning body looseners.
The order of the body looseners are from the ground up so we always start with the ankle looseners.
Since it was an active recovery week, we all ran for an hour before we did our post-run yoga.
Following the run, I attended Coach Steve's Advanced ChiRunning Training for Mentors class. The session was extremely helpful and we learned a number of advanced ChiRunning techniques.
When I was first introduced to ChiRunning, I was unable to incorporate the concepts into my running form.
I wasn't until I signed up for a two hour private ChiRunning Workshop with a ChiRunning Certified Instructor, Coach Steve, that it all came together for me.
I can honestly say attending Coach Steve's workshop transformed my entire Running Green Girl life. It inspired me to join the Sole Runners and ChiRunning has significantly reduced my injuries and recovery time.
I would recommend his Southern California ChiRunning Workshops and Retreats without hesitation to anyone who is interested in learning proper form and techniques.
