If I want to run faster, I need to speed up. This is a given. However, do I achieve this by a faster strike rate (I'm already at 160-165 / minute) or a longer stride? At the moment my strike rate is comfortable but as a forefoot striker I find that my strides are quite short. Should I try to increase the length of the stride a little (not so much that I injure myself), or up the strike rate?
When I read articles about increasing speed, they all seem to suggest that you need to run faster for intervals. But what makes for faster running? Serious question!
