I decided not to run any big races this year. I will do a few local 5 or 10 km races that I can sign-up for on race day. That means that since I’m not constantly in training mode, I can take a step back, build my core, work on my strength and nutrition. It also means that I can take the time to learn to run.
Wait what? Learn to run?
Yes, that’s what I said! For those of you who have followed Run Mommy Run for a few years, you might remember a series of posts about the Pose Method. For those of you who are new, it’s a running method one can learn that, when mastered, will help you run faster, farther and injury free for life.
I started to learn the basic principles of the Pose Method using the book “The Running Revolution” by the creator of the Pose Method, Dr. Nicholas Romanov. I did a series of post documenting my experience with lessons 1 through 4. Then I stopped. I revisited the Pose Method or a similar theory during the running part of the triathlon clinics I took last summer leading up to my first triathlon. I’ve been trying to apply the principles of the Pose Method and be more aware of my body movements while running ever since.
Recently, I was contacted by a staff member from the Pose Method and offered me a free 1 month trial subscription to their YouTube Channel so I can learn to run. I will be studying the Pose Method in the next few weeks while reviewing Learn To Run YouTube Channel. What better time than the off-season to perfect a new method that will make me run faster, longer and injury free!
Follow along for the next month and see if/how my running gets better with all the information I’ll be getting from the Learn To Run Channel!
