“RUNNING HAS A RHYTHM. IT’S WORTH A LISTEN”
CADENCE = STEPS/MINUTE
Life has a pulse, music has a beat, and running has a rhythm, which is often referred to as step rate: AKA CADENCE.
Cadence is a metric that can be used to help runners adopt a shorter stride in order to reduce the shock of impact. Research has shown cadence to play a primary role in addressing common running related injuries (RRIs).
