So, today I had to do a run on the track. Very controlled environment so I could analyze the run. I have always been pressured to lengthen my stride and look straight ahead of me, but today, as I carried my phone with my miCoach app running, I found that when I did that, my pace was slower. When I shortened my stride and looked just ahead of my feet, my pace was much faster. Huh! Very, very useful information. I am much more comfortable with the short strides.
