The ideal running cadence. Is there even such a thing?

Coach Greg McMillan sheds light on this topic and offers his perspective on how finding your ideal cadence can improve your running.  A slower cadence isn’t bad but it’s just not conducive to faster racing.

It’s been noted that 180 strides per minute is most common among pro runners.  For aspiring age groupers, McMillan feels that the optimal range falls between 170 and 190.

Add fast but controlled strides to your workout to improve your cadence.  Think about “fast feet” and quick turnover.  Even a slight increase in cadence can yield a breakthrough performance.
