New York Times Article: Finding a sustainable running stride.

I stumbled across this interesting article from the New York Times this morning, discussing how more people of today are searching for training methods that will keep them from being sidelined from injuries.


One popular method is Chi running which claims to improve running form and reduce injury.

Another method is the Pose Method which helps runners master the art of form.

What is interesting is that shift of priority of people to schedules and programmes that involve training methods in order to improve fitness versus those which focus on injury avoidance and finding better form.

It is brings about the question of whether athletes or sportspeople who are already injured, can they carry on running learning and using these methods?

It looks as though more research is required, and more evidence may be required before these claims can be substantiated fully.
