JUD17 – Short stride

To make my run today more fun, I was attempting to:

1. Keep my steps short because: “shortening one’s stride helps keep one on top of one’s feet, which helps one hit mid-foot (instead of heel-striking) and keeps one’s momentum going forward”.

2. Keep my feet close to the ground so that it feels like I am shuffling and my feet barely leave the ground (Don’t I always do that??).

3. Count my steps and practice running with a high cadence (85-95).

Why all this? They say that running with a high cadence shouldn’t be as tiring as running with a low cadence. Efficient endurance running requires just a slight knee lift, a quick leg turnover, and a short stride. I’m still working on that one…..
