Running to the beat

Running to the beat

Have you ever thought about using a metronome to improve your running? Those of you taking the POSE running seminar this weekend will learn more about this. If you watch videos of the greatest runners in the world (whether they run Pose or not), you’ll find that almost all of them run at a cadence at or above 180 steps per minute (or 30 steps per 10 seconds.) If you’ve never counted your cadence before, this will probably feel very fast to you… but it doesn’t mean you have to run fast. Increasing your cadence without going faster means taking slightly shorter strides. Here’s an article by Danny Dryer (creator of Chi Running) on the subject. He makes some great recommendations about the use of a metronome. And by the way, if you want to get one, we have them HERE in our pro shop.
