Cadence: What you need to know!

Ever heard people talk about “optimal running cadence” but not been 100% sure what they meant?

If so, here’s what you need to know…

Put simply, cadence is the number of steps you take per minute.

Run with short, quick strides?

You’ll have a high cadence.

Lumber along with slow, long strides?

You’ll have a low cadence.

A lot of runners kind of focus on what’s happening with their feet.

But actually, most look more into stride length than they do cadence.

And that could be a recipe for slower times, and for injury.

The reason why we’re so big on cadence here at Brownlee Fitness, is because it’s basically a cheat code.

While you might think running faster is all down to VO2 max, lactate threshold, or simply learning to “hang on” in those latter stages…

Actually, paying just a little bit more attention to cadence is an easy way to get faster.

Without you having to train harder and longer.

I don’t know about you, but that seems like a win to me.
