Cadence?

Sorting through the bollocks

I wear a Garmin footpod mainly for recording distance to my Connect profile from a treadmill run but you can see from this run with strides, cadence changes with an increase in pace. Not sure what it proves though, I'm guessing the spm at the side needs to be doubled as I have two feet but only one pod

Thanks, Phil.

Seems there's lots of ideas, theories and advice out there about cadence then, most of it confusing, much of it contradictory, and therefore, all of it, at least for me and for now, to be ignored!

Has anyone else here actually paid serious attention to this? 

I've just been out on my short route - 3 miles. I haven't run such a short distance in ages. My recovery is usually 6 miles.

I had an iphone plugged into 180 beats per minute. 

On the spot, fine.

Moving...oh dear. Tried this for ten minutes, then changed down to 175, then up to 190. 

Really found the whole thing uncomfortable and not at all rewarding.

Can anyone who had made this work advise me, and should I keep at it?
