Re: POSE running

Thanks guys. I've had killer shin splints as of late and I'm thinking something's gotta change.

Re: POSE running

I made the transition to POSE running about 1 yr ago, before this I injured myself from running way too much in my 20ís and have tried to make a comeback every 2nd year or so with no success (would always re injure myself)

I am now 41 and have had no injuries from running since the first day I tried the POSE technique, though I now donít overdo the running, just follow the WOD, but itís great to be able to run again.

Hope this helps, Pete.

Ditto on the POSE Ginger. Me too. Has helped tremendously and my time has actually improved.

Re: POSE running

Instead of buying expensive shoes to run POSE technique, what about making moccasins?

You can make a pair of center-seam mocs very easily and quickly. Or you could put a latigo sole on if you'd like a little more rugged sole.

Puma makes a variety of lo profile running shoes for men and women, starting at $50 and up. I run in a womens Lo-Cat. I paid around $70 for them.

And you thought working out in your vibram five fingers made people give you weird looks!

I love your enterprising spirit, Aaron! I was actually pondering the possibility of making a running shoe, also. I'm intrigued by the barefoot running crowd but my understanding is that many/most of them get Nike Frees or Vibrams or similiar to simulate being barefoot. This is out of simple utility, the ground being rough and covered with pebbles, glass, etc, but I feel like I could make a shoe that simulates being barefoot just fine, you know? I was thinking about a leather soled sandal laced up like a roman Caliga (not totally unlike THIS (WFS)).

I then spent the next 2 months going from no running in the last 8 years to running a marathon (and losing 20lbs!). I completed the marathon without my orthotics, running in racing flats essentially (Newton shoes, designed for POSE running, wfs).

I'm still running, I've done numerous 5k runs and ran in a 24hr relay (6 ppl, 180miles), all without any pain.

I'm 6'1" and 240lbs, heavy athletic build. I'm not a lightweight runner body at all but I can run now thanks to POSE/Chi
Jason, I checked out the Newton shoes link. They look awesome, but man they are expensive. Are they worth it to you? Have you tried any other Pose friendly shoes?

Re: POSE running

anyone had any luck overcoming ITBS with pose/chi running?

I've as good as given away running distances longer than about a mile, as it inevitably leaves me unable to walk for a day or two, afterwards. the usual stretching/strengthening/massage remedy for ITBS has not met with much success.

I have. However, I also made good use of a foam roller plus Graston treatment combined with ART.

BTW Pat, everyone else probably thinks you're a newb, but I remember you from the old days circa 04-05. Good to see you posting again.

Re: POSE running

thanks william.

sounds like I should give it a go, along with a resumption of the roller/stretching etc.

and cheers for the memories; lots of new faces (or the message board equivalent) amongst the more avid posters, but it's encouraging to see a few of the old guard still around.
