Late start to the week

I had a very good run today, did a very peaceful 11km run in about 1hr 10mins. Not sure if it was a freak case or benefits of chi running kicking in. I have completed about 5 chapters of the book, but the main benefit/essence of the book was picked up by me in the first chapter and after that the book has just rambled on without actually taking the book to a higher level with each successive chapter. The big thing I picked up was that one needed to relax arms and limbs completely and to just let the body move (more glide) on its own, with complete control over ones breathing & driving the body from Chi (the center of the body). I hope I can actually make it happen with each of my forthcoming runs.

I hope to do two more runs this week, one on Saturday and the other on Sunday. And if I am lucky and can get out early maybe even do a swim on Sunday. I am yet to do two activities back to back, bike and run or do a run and swim. Will this Sunday be the first one?

Chi running! sounds interesting. For a second there I thought you were writing a book (not reading) and then it made more sense when I read the previous post.
Some day you should write a book. Happy to edit for you (you will need to return the favor some day).

I would love to writing a book, but before that get some big Tri's and Ultras under my belt.

The more I travel, the more interesting experiences get and the more I discover myself.

And yes, I will take you up on your offer.
