Running Tips: Improving Your Stride

Improve your stride to prepare the body for the faster paces of a hard workout or a race. Over the course of three-four 75m intervals, you will gradually take the body from easy pace into race pace. An essential area of focus for all athletes to work on and improve!

Hi, I’m Joanna Murphy. I’m a New Balance Boston athlete and CoachUp coach. And this is the stride. Doing strides is a great way to prepare the body for the faster paces of a hard workout, or a race. Going from an easy warm up or a jogging pace, straight into running hard is very shocking for the body and the stride kind of helps bridge that gap. It’s 75-100m intervals. You want to focus on gradually increasing your pace and effort on each one until you end around your race pace. So your first interval might go from easy pace, ending around 75% effort. On the next interval you might go from 75%, ending around 90%. And the last one you might end around race pace. Either way, over the course of 3-4, 75m intervals, you want to gradually take the body from easy pace into race pace.
