I have terrible running form, and I'm working on cleaning that up. The only instruction I've had was at the CF Running and Endurance Cert, but I never learned POSE then, and I still can't do it now. I've been trying to run barefoot for over a year now though, and I'm still heel striking, so it's definitely something I need to focus on.
This is very interesting, have you checked out your ankle flexibility, and any degree of internal or external rolling of your foot while pushing off? Sounds like a definite biomechanical thing http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=koMln6j6-Ng safe. if you have very inflexible ankles (raising up) the tibia gets pulled awkardly in impact and easily creates shin fractures
