Q: I'm wondering how effective the Pose Method of training is, and what others know of the method. To me it sounds somewhat similar to Arthur Lydiard"s method. Having sustained a rupture disc at L5 I'm looking to develop a lighter running form if possible. Thanks for any input. - A., 10/19/04

A: I am afraid I am not familiar with the "Pose Method" other than a brief web search on the concept. It's way too cerebral for the limited capacity of my cranium. Sorry. However, I'm a recovering L2-L3 disc dude myself and can understand your interest in form-based running methods. I've just been trying to loosen up my guitar string hams and strengthen my abs, which I was told would take some pressure off my back. I also have backed off on the intensity level of my training, which means I don't get to race with the guys I used to, but they don't like me too much anyway.

Sorry I couldn't help.
