Ask Running Writings Episode 1: Introduction & Stride Frequency

I'm happy to announce the launch of my YouTube channel! Check out for my new series, Ask Running Writings.  This show will answer questions and explain popular or misunderstood concepts about training, racing, running injuries, and more! My first video explains some of the science behind increasing your stride frequency and how it can help prevent injuries.  It also includes some advice from a coaching perspective on what type of stride frequencies you can expect to see in competitive distance athletes running at an easy pace, and how to go about increasing your stride frequency if yours is too low.

If you've got a question that you'd like answered on a future episode of Ask Running Writings, leave a comment on the video page or drop me a line at the Contact Me page!

About the Author

John J Davis, PhD

I have been coaching runners and writing about training and injuries for over ten years. I've helped total novices, NXN-qualifying high schoolers, elite-field competitors at major marathons, and runners everywhere in between. I have a Ph.D. in Human Performance, and I do scientific research focused on the biomechanics of overuse injuries in runners. I published my first book, Modern Training and Physiology for Middle and Long-Distance Runners, in 2013.
