It appears that with respect to most aspects of running technique, the unconscious brain knows better than the conscious mind what is most efficient. Each runner naturally adopts the stride rate that is most efficient given the totality of his or her biomechanics and body structure. My natural stride rate is lower than Gebrselassie’s because of largely unchangeable differences in the ways our bodies are put together. Trying to run more like him in this or just about any other way cannot possibly do me any good. This is not to say that my stride rate could not increase in a manner that would enhance my running economy, but if it did, it would have to do so through an unconscious evolution of my overall stride. There is, in fact, anecdotal evidence from runners who train with speed and distance devices with cadence-monitoring capability that stride rate increases naturally and unconsciously as fitness increases. Not only is it difficult to identify stride changes that are actually helpful, but it is also extremely difficult to make most specific stride changes (whether potentially helpful or not) stick. On a visit with the Mammoth Lakes Track Club, I watched three-time Olympian Jen Rhines work consciously to increase her knee lift while running 100 m sprints under the watchful eye of her coach and husband, Terrence Mahon. I’ve always had a bit of a shuffle, so that’s our goal this year, is to get rid of the shuffle, she told me. Frankly, I expect to see Rhines shuffling as always the next time I watch her race, and if I do, I am confident it will be for the best. Rhines shuffles for a reason. I think it is highly likely that her body is designed in a way that makes low knee lift and a low back kick more efficient for her than the high knee lift and high back kick seen in some other elite runners, such as Kenenisa Bekele. Forcing a change probably will not help her running, and because her unconscious brain knows this, it will cause her to revert to her efficient shuffle in the heat of competition. Jen Rhines is not alone among elite runners in fiddling with her stride. Nowadays many elite runners in the West do the same. Alberto Salazar told me: Biomechanics are vital. The old idea that your form really doesn’t matter is so outdated. We know without a doubt that the very best runners that have the longest careers are the ones that are most biomechanically sound. So that’s something I really stress with my runners. I feel it’s as important as how many miles you run and the pace that you run your intervals. €
