Notes on How to Run Strides
- Plan to do strides once a week after an easy run.
- Find a stretch of flat, safe path about 100 meters long.
- Start off with a jog – Accelerate to sprinting at about 90% effort – Once you get there start to slow down to a stop.
- Rest for a minute
- Do about 4 strides after an easy run to start.
Go go gooooo!!!
Keep notes in your running log on how it went…. how you felt… how many you did… location… weather… etc.
Then, check in with your body the next day and add that to your running log too. Note if you feel sore, strong, tired, your legs feel heavy but your confidence is high, etc – anything that can impact your running and health.
