I am hopefully nearing full recovery from a bout of Osteitis Pubis and a strained adductor which has kept me out of action since FLM.
Is there any accepted protocol as to roughly how long it will take to reach a good level of running fitness once again. During my lay off I have cycled, swam and done a hell of a lot of pool running to try to maintain a decent level of fitness.
I wasn't arguing against the merits of chi, just commenting on my early impressions and happily stand corrected. If it is good enough for Limo than it is more than good enough for me. Also, with a history of calf issues POSE probably isn't worth the risk.
How long did it take you to adapt to the chi style? If I need to change my injury inducing non economic style then now seems as good a time as any.
Does anyone know if any comparison between chi and pose has taken place. Ran 2.29 at FLM with very sore hips. Just been to physio who has filmed my running and pointed out that I lean backwards thus stressing the hip-flexors, quads etc as well as being very un-economic. WEF net week I start to change my running technique to give a leaning forward style and note that both pose and chi are based upon this lean.
Any comparisons would be interesting has I have heard lots of moans stating that pose knackers you calves whilst the chi book that I have started reading seems more based upon enjoyable running than running quicker (I may stand corrected as I am only part way into the book.
