Rather than sweating over pace, look at these numbers for hints on improving your running style.
How frequently your feet hit the ground. Optimal cadence varies by person, but experts say to aim for 160 to 180 steps per minute.
The ‘bounce’ in your running motion. It’s typically between six and 13cm (elite athletes have even less bounce). You may see this number drop as your form and speed improve.
How long your foot spends on the ground with each step. An ideal range is between 160 and 300 milliseconds.
