Second Pose run a little easier

Five days after my initial try, I did another Pose method run. It's two days later now, and the calf soreness is mostly gone. I guess I'll try another one today at lunch. I think I'm into the tougher phase now -- making the new gait second nature. My guess is that it may take several months. I'm not sure how I'll handle running with my friends on the weekends. We've planned to to long runs on Saturday mornings to get ready for an April marathon, but there's no chance I could run more than a few miles using Pose.

Either it will get much easier soon, or I'll just alternate miles between pose an heel-toe. Another thought: I'll have to recalibrate my Polar pace module for my new stride.
