Hoy puse esta pregunta en mi pagina de “The Loop”. A ver que contesta la gente.

Training advice on how to improve stride length.

Hi everyone,

I feel good with with my cadence (I can keep it betwen 180-195 without a problem).

I feel good with my mid to forefoot landing.

I thought I was doing well. Then I saw those slo-mo videos of the trials in Eugene posted in this website. WOW! The length of those strides is unreal! And they still manage to land with their center of gravity right on top of their feet!

I started paying more attention to those mechanincs on my last couple of runs and I realized that my stride length is my weakest point and it is probably one of the major factors that are not allowing me to run faster. (Keep in mind that I am only 5’8″)

Any good tips on how to improve on this? Excercises on improving your toe-off maybe?

Thanks!
