I'm slightly confused: several sources define a given cadence (normally around 180 steps per minute) as ideal, but without mentioning the pace.
For instance, Garmin Connect says:
An often-citen target for running cadence is 180spm.
However, if everybody should run at 180spm, the difference between a person runnig at 4:00min/km and another one running at 5:30min/km or 7:10min/km or whatever other pace can only be the stride length.
That doesn't seem to be right... am I missing something here?
