so much power. that was one of my key observations from the data gathered at the races last spring: the most glaring difference between the first km or two and the rest of the race for me is stride length. stride length comes from putting force into the ground. the cadence those guys are running at is chill, you can see the relaxation in their shoulders and faces. guess they're just traveling so far with each step. amazing.

yup. 100%.

stride freq is "overrated".

i've seen data on people running crazy fast at 17X SPM etc.

Kipchoge's breaking2 was like ~180-185 SPM @ 4:36 min/mi pace? that cadence is "deceiving" because of the ROM he gets each stride. just full strides, insane power. who knows I could be wrong about his cadence, but many long distance elites run 180-190 SPM and they are absolutely flying. You start to see 200+ as it gets down to 1 mile and below.

i often see people saying to focus on stride freq, not stride length.. which is correct in one respect: you shouldn't be trying to "lengthen" your stride while running. instead, should be doing training that makes you more powerful, giving you that extra distance per stride without forcing it, ie speed work etc.

during speed work, you can focus on increasing stride length by simply applying more force (going faster without increasing cadence), but not by consciously "lengthening it", IMHO.

so ya, the guys in these clips are just getting more length per stride at an easy effort, that's neurological to me. The CNS always shows it's powerful face :ninja:

you can be 180 SPM at short choppy strides vs 180 SPM at full ROM strides, two very different things.

pc!
