Lesson 4 Description

In this video you are going to learn about run cadence.

I started learning and focusing on my run cadence about 5 - 6 years ago and it has been a huge change and help for my running.

Basically what I learned is that I was running at too low of a cadence.  I then needed to find a way to measure it, track it and then change it.

I choose to use a metronome that my kids used for music.  There are now many other available options.

For the majority of us we will be targetting a run cadence between 80 - 89 rpm (revolutions per min) or 160 - 180 spm (steps per min).

Pay close attention to the video.  Measure your current cadence and see if you need to change yours.

I like to keep my cadence constant no matter what speed I am going.  This is REALLY tricky as you will be taking super small steps when going slow.  Don't be closed minded and give it a go.  See what happens.

Happy Running
