Default Running Technique

I know most of the technique discussions on here are about weightlifting, but I was hoping maybe someone could help me with running.

I know the popular running "techniques" are things like POSE, Chi, and barefoot running. I've been to the CF running and endurance cert, I still can't run POSE. I've read the books and watched the videos, I still can't run POSE, I switched to barefoot, and I still can't do it.

I even tried to contact every POSE coach listed in my area, absolutely none of the emailed me back....

Even barefoot, I still heel strike, and I still spend more time on the ground than I do in the air.

I found this thread on the forum:

But I'm not completely sold on the idea that POSE is the best method for improving running form.

I want to learn to run correctly and avoid stress fractures and other overuse injuries. I'm trying to turn over a new leaf here and do things right instead of just forcing my way through injuries and bad form. If anyone could give me some guidance, I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks guys!
