Does any one have experience with this and can you tell me about your run times? my 5k time is around 18 min and i am interested in learning to use this style. however there is not really any testimonies of people on the internet so im not sure if it is worth the time to invest in learning it.

If you search for POSE on this board you will find an archive of great information. POSE is my preferred way to run. I am not an experienced runner, but I have set all of my PRs in the 400, 800, 5K, and 10K with POSE running.

To me it's the most efficient and also the most mechanically sound way to run.

Same results as Ben, with the added bonus of a huge decrease in running related impact injuries. In all reality, you have nothing to lose trying it, if it doesn't work then you can just return to your previous strategy (18 min is good for a 5K in my book, I have stubby legs ):bleh0000:

This isn't pose but has many similarities. It from the famous runner Gordon Pirie. This link has been posted on CF a few time before. Some great stuff in here w/f safe. http://www.gordonpirie.com/

Truth be told, I looked at Pose (and the significant price), then downloaded the Pirie book and used it. As it has been said, most of what we do isn't new, just rediscovered.

I was thinking the exact same thing today before my 5k.
Ive tried to use pose from what i learned online without spending money but my calves(most likely ill form) get tired quickly and its hard for me to keep it going for such a long time. But I have noticed an increase in performance with my sprints.
