Running speed is a result of stride length multiplied by stride frequency. That said, many runners will first attempt to increase stride length, which in turn reduces their stride frequency, which, under optimal conditions should
Mastering running cadence is the key to unlocking the secret to running faster. This means increasing the rate of turnover in the legs. Unfortunately, many runners decide to take longer strides instead and slow their cadence. They focus on pushing themselves forward with their rear leg and lengthening their placement of their front leg.http://www.triathlon-hacks.com/master-running-cadence-to-improve-running-speed/
Proper running form means running better with fewer injuries. Thanks to our expert's break down of the three simple components of better form, you don't have to master biomechanics to understand how to do it.
