As can be guessed from my alter ego and "Face It" image. I'm really a cyclist. I've been convinced to do a tri by a mate. I've been along to some swimming lessons at which a lot of emphasis has been put on lengthening my stroke.
Is the same approach true in running? I.e. should I be increasing my stride length?
As a cyclist I have tight hamstrings so my stride is naturally short. What are the safest ways of increasing stride length and will it give me efficiency improvement?
