This blog is all about my journey with Chi Running. I try to discuss all aspects of the practice. I also write a book review for every book I read about running. Please DO post comments below - you don't event need to have an account - just leave your name :)

Chi Running Android App

The Chi running app for android is finally out. I immediately bought and gave it a whirl.

I really love the video library that is built in to this app. It's great to be able to remind yourself of the chi running focuses, and the visual reminders you get from video really help here. I would say that you need to read the book or, even better, work with an instructor before you start using the app as I feel it's strength will be as a reminder rather than as a main teacher. However, the facility to select and control the audio reminders that you during your run is absolutely fantastic. The mindful, mental focus side of chi running is incredibly important and these clips will really help with the 'form intervals' method of training which is so important to the chi runner.

All in all, this really is quite a unique app.

If the app was developed in the future to give it more of the features of more mainstream running apps such as runkeeper, endomondo and strava it could be even more popular I feel.

There is a further review and description here that is worth a read. http://www.androidpit.com/en/android/market/apps/app/com.chiliving.chirunning/Chi-Running-Training-App
