I've seen the term "Strides" used in training plans, and just wanted to clarify what it meant? For example, I might have a run described as a "5 mile recovery run with some strides" or "with 200m of strides". The name suggests I should be taking long, lanky strides, like the BFG, but i'm not sure what benefit that would be. I thought the received wisdom was that shorter strides with faster leg turnover are better. Is this what "strides" means? Bit of a naive question, but thought I'd ask.
