So with today’s run, I focused on a key ingredient to running that the following video details clearly. There are two types of runners —Gazelles and Gliders. Watch the video and learn the strategy that can help age-group runners increase their times.
I would say focusing on HIT (High Intensity Training) is critical to getting cadence increased. You need to be able to know the cadence and feel it.
I have measured my cadence on many occasions and I seem to comfortably settle into 85 – 88. Not ideal. I believe 90+ is really optimal.
One important aspect of these two differing styles is:
Arm swing and movement. Typically the legs following the arms. In addition to the cadence of foot strikes take note of the arm swings of each example.
Enjoy your runs!
