running with a metronome

leave a comment »’ve been running with my Korg ma30 metronome this past week and it’s great. The metronome helps me to run at a very even stride rate, pace and effort. I carry the metronome in my hand while I’m running. It is very light and easy to carry. I started at 144 spm (48 beeps) on Sep06.

This morning I ran 4x a quarter mile at free rate to see what my cadence would be, by split timing several sets of 60 strides (3 steps x 20). My average stride rate was 160.5, with an average stride length 25 percent longer than it was at 150.
