1. Count for one minute of every five minutes of running
Count for one minute of every five minutes of running, irrespective of the distance of your training run. The ideal cadence is 90 foot strikes per minute per foot. You can do this by either counting manually or using a Garmin wearable, Foot Pod or Running Dynamics Pod to count for you.
Make counting your cadence a habit on every run. Irrespective of whether you are running slow, fast, on a track, on the road, on trails, a long run, or a short run, just count! Consistent counting and habit formation is the key.
