Video: Running on Ice

Posted by Filed Under: Learn to Run, Pose Method of Running, Running Form, Video

There are few tests of a runner’s technique better than running on ice. Being able to run on ice — especially at the speed shown in the clip below — demonstrates excellent balance and timing, and efficiency of form (i.e. by not slipping, energy is not wasted).

Dr. Nicholas Romanov (originator of the Pose Method of Running) shows how it’s done with the claim that, if you learn to run using his method, you can also run with the balance and timing required to run on ice.

About Mark Iocchelli

Also known as the "Running Blogfather", I'm a 40-something marathoner who has beaten stress fractures and terrible shin splints. Now I'm running double the mileage with no pain - and I'm getting faster. I love to talk about running form and Arthur Lydiard. I also enjoy taking photographs, have a beautiful (and very patient!) wife, and am the proud father of two crazy kids. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or comments about the site.

    Runners should try this running on ice….as it helps them to maintain their balance….although it might be a little difficult in the beginning, I am sure it will be beneficial.
