Day 004 - Cadence

Cross-train or easy run        Training via ActiveMail

DO 30 MINUTES OF CROSS-TRAINING OR EASY RUNNING: Cross-training is any activity that allows the muscles you use in your main sport (in this case, your running muscles) to recover, while still producing a training effect for that sport. Deep-water running and cycling are the best cross-training activities for running. If you haven't lifted weights before, get help from a qualified personal trainer or staff person at your gym. If you do an easy run today, check your cadence (how fast your legs turn over). Count your right foot strike for one minute. The ideal cadence is 90 steps per right foot or 180 steps per minute of running.
