Running on Ice

When watching elite athletes run I am keenly aware of how similar they are.  This video is about efficiency.  Run as if you are running on ice.  Near the end of the clip, the author, Dr. Nicholas Rominov actually runs on ice.  Rominov, is the founder of the pose method of running.  When we think about how we run and try to minimize the forces that slow us down we also may be avoiding unnecessary forces that cause injury.  When you run, envision you are running on ice.  It might prevent you from overstriding or leaning too far back.  Watch the video and comment as you see fit.

Here's another:  Haile Running in Slow Motion (Beautiful)
