The Logic of Long Distance
The following might sound harsh. The truth hurts.
Speed is not your problem (you don't need any speed at all to be able to run 4:00:00; you just need to be able to run the whole way without stopping). Form is not your problem unless you are consistently struggling with injuries. Your only problem is that you haven't been running enough. You can't get speed or endurance by tinkering around with your form. You get speed and endurance (and good form, by the way) from the strength that comes from heading out the door every day, day after day, month after month. If you make a commitment to Chi, then you'll get really good at Chi. If you make a commitment to running, you'll become a good runner.
It doesn't cost $80, and it's really that simple.
