Un­der­stand­ing Ca­dence

Canadian Running - - LAB RAT -

A STEP is half a full cy­cle, so right foot to left foot

A STRIDE is the full cy­cle, so right foot to right foot

CA­DENCE, or step rate, is the num­ber of steps you take for a unit of time, usu­ally, per minute (SPM)

STEP LENGTH is what dic­tates your ca­dence: at a set speed, if you take shorter steps, ca­dence goes up and if you take longer steps, ca­dence goes down.
