How to run strides (cont.)

How to run strides (cont.)

  1. Start the stride by running easy, focusing on a short, quick stride, and then gradually increase your speed by lengthening your stride.
  2. Keep your torso tall and relaxed. It should feel like a controlled fast pace rather than a sprint.
  3. When you reach three quarters into the runway distance, gradually decelerate by shortening your stride until you come to a walk.
  4. If you’re running by time, the total stride should be around 30 seconds (i.e. run easy for 10 seconds, increase stride length for 15 seconds, and decelerate for 5 seconds).
  5. Walk back to the starting point to recover, and then repeat.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
