Playing With Pose

I am still on my recovery, but I started studying techniques that may help me prevent injury. One of them, is the Pose technique.

From what I can tell, I am supposed to fall forward with my back straight, head up, bending at my ankles. I tried it for a few steps on the carpet floors(to not irritate my heel) and it felt alright. It definitely kept me more on the balls of my feet without stressing my calf muscles. Now, is this better? I dunno. I only ran 10 feet with it.

Will I go full on Pose method if I do decide to keep the form? Probably not. It is something I want to play with and implement into my running if it works for me. Experimentation can be good right? Anyone have any experiences with Pose or even Chi running?
