Romanov keeps referring to Romanov keeps referring to "normal running" as in shoe running, note this means barefoot running is not normal running. His take is that it is a drill not regular running, also note - how to learn to start to barefoot with a jump rope and weights. They were way off on the running surfaces too...back then Pose was behind on barefoot running just like the shoe companies etc. They changed over time like everyone else...I think they had hoped to market a Pose shoe but it never came about. BTW i'm not against the Pose coaching....I've posted on their site a little and had their coaches check my running video too. They have some good things but like most advice you have to see if its something you relate to or not.
