Pace is completely determined by cadence and stride length
This is a popular misconception- True stride length is a result of speed.
All movement is a result of falling out of balance and cadence is how you count how often you change support to to regain temporary balance.
I can have a cadence of 200 but go nowhere (running in place).
I can artificially increase my stride length by reaching forward with my foot -but we all know that over striding slows you down.
Fall angle + appropriate cadence = speed, = stride length.
