How to improve your running cadence

Is there anything like a “right” running cadence? Any number you should work for? Well, the right cadence is a heavily debated topic among runners and triathletes. Some studies show that most world-class runners take around 180 steps (or more) per minute – and, gosh, they are good!

Does that mean it’s the perfect number for you as well? Nes, or Yo. While there is no perfect individual number, science shows there is a range that you should aim for. And that range is individual. But aiming for 180 rpm is a valuable goal. Even more if you aren’t used to running in that range. Because improving your cadence not only will help you run faster with the same or even less effort, but it can also lessen your chance of injuries.

Scientists also state that most injuries result from three different aspects of your running technique. Heel striking, over-striding and cadence/or cadence.
