Mindful Running: Running on Thin IceLeave the first response October 5, 2010 / Posted in Mindful Running, Running Injury Prevention
I came across another video of him at the blog site of a friend with whom I’ve corresponded off and on for the past two years. This is what Jim Haselmaier has to share on his Running for Life blog when he spoke about Running Without Pushing Off:
A while ago I discovered this video and I find it fascinating. Dr. Nicholas Romanov, the creator of the Pose Method of running, is running on a sheet of ice. Is there friction between his shoe and the ice? Of course. Is it a lot of friction? Of course not. What better way to show running movement doesn’t require active pushing by the leg. If pushing off with the leg was done – obviously the foot would slip and the runner wouldn’t get very far very fast.
