I've never counted my steps within 30 seconds. I usually count up to a minute. But the last time I did this was months ago and as Jeff said, it must be done every week. Oops!
This type of training can be very frustrating ( I remember I was!) since changing one's stride rate is not an easy task especially if you've been running a certain way for years. So just be patient.
TIP: In the video, you'll see Jeff running close to the ground with quick short strides -- this running style increases your rate of fast foot turnover. This running style also helps us endurance athletes conserve energy for long distance runs.
Have you ever counted your steps?
30 Days of Thanks (Day 8)
I am thankful for my DAD and STEP-MOM - very special people in my life! They have given me everything I could possibly need and are always there to guide and show support in everything that I do. They are also awesome grand-parents to my daughter and their other "apos" (grandchildren). They will move mountains just to be there for their grand kids (as it should be!). I am thankful that I am much closer to them now that I am here in the U.S. and looking forward to celebrating Thanksgiving with them for the first time.
Do you have awesome parents too?
