Run Training Tip – Check Your Cadence
The best runners typically take 165-180 steps per minute. To achieve this, at the beginning of a minute, count foot strikes for the right foot for one minute. Multiply by two to get the total number of foot strikes for that minute. Don’t “chop” your steps, simply move your legs faster. Check your cadence during a couple runs each week in this manner.
