Running
I am wondering about the correct posture for running (as I am anticipating being back at it relatively soon) and also good cyclin gposture (though I suspect that this is a bit of a gnarly issue since one's head is out front of the body much of the time, particularly in the Tie Trial position) Do you have any suggestions or will you be writing some articles about posture during exercise??

Learning the inner corset and glidewalking helps a lot with good running form. I get asked a lot of questions about running and am very interested (I run mysefl), but do not consider myself an expert yet. For cycling, it is critical to learn to hiphinge or use a recumbent bike. Curving the back anywhere is not excellent; curving the lumbar spine can be disastrous.

I am trying Evolution running/ose running both of which involve running on forefoot as opposed to heel striking. I understand that heel striking contributes to the sway back..pelvic tilt and forefoot running is posturally better. You may want to have a look at these to see what you think. I am a bit concerned about the cycling issue, as triathlon involves time trial bike position..though that said, one can 'rest' on the tri bars.. what are your thoughts on swimming???pelvis anteversion in swimming? joan

Which part of your foot touches the ground first depends on whether you are sprinting or not. Check this slow motion video of the Ethiopian marathoner Haile Gebrselassie out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5x6V48IIQRQ. Pretty clearly a heel strike, wouldn't you say? And then look at the sprinters in this less well-made video (see the section of the closeup of the feet exactly halfway through the clip) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PUeaBfj73Gk - here the footfall is clearly on the forefoot.
