Running Cadence Update



Cadence (how often your feet land) is one of the most critical aspects of running as it can reduce the likelihood of injuries and improve running economy (how fast you run). I've refreshed my page on running cadence to improve clarity, and I've included some more scientific research I found while looking into running economy. 

The update to running economy is taking much longer than I expected as there is a huge amount of research, some of it conflicting. How shoe weight and ground contact time effects running economy is particularly confusing.
