I've been running for a number of years although I often try and increase my cadence but then I get frustrated when I fail and return to running as I always have (poorly).
I am currently running at 160 and would like to ramp up slowly and maybe get to 165 for example. As I do this, should I be lifting my knees up higher in order to land my feet under my hips? I have always had a bad habit of not bending my knees enough, so will improving my cadence help me to raise my knees more also? I feel like it does slightly but my carves tend to hurt a lot and I feel more tired, it feels so unnatural at times. Is it supposed to feel like this? Is it natural that your knees go higher as your cadence increases?
Thanks in advance for any help
