Training Ground

Los Angeles Historic Park. 1.1 Mile loop and you can run off to Elysian Park for some hills. A gem in the city of Angels.

Who stole my Chi?

The struggles of learning and continuing Chi Running...

Right when I think I have it down and can run forever, my knee starts to hurt a bit. The pain comes and goes as I adjust my form. At the end, I think I will have to rest for a day or so, but when I wake up, the pain is gone, and I'm fine. It has been a roller coaster for sure. Icing and stretching seem to help a ton. Each day bring a new challenge, a new high, and a new low. The process is the journey and I want to remember it when I finally get the form down.

And it's back....Had a great 6.44 mile run through the hills. No pain and sliced right through the hills.

Came and went today. 6.02 mile run, mostly flat, Chi came and went. Slowing the pace and correcting my form made knee pain go away. Lesson learned.

Chi comes and Chi goes...

I live to run

Recently, I have discovered that I have enough. I have always wanted more and more, and now realize that I have everything that I need....

Sometime during my life, I fell into the consumerism trap. I felt that I needed things for all sorts of scenarios. Scenarios that never happened. Before I knew it, I was buried in my stuff. Now, I have to fight back against the consumerism instinct that I acquired.
