Why 180 Strides per Minute?

cadenceStride frequency seems to be the most controversial and perplexing component of running mechanics. There are those that resist the theory of 180 spm being an ideal cadence and its the cause of many arguments.  I however feel that most people that struggle with this approach have pieces of the puzzle missing.  In this podcast Coach Richard Diaz attempts to shed some light on why he feels so strongly that finding this cadence is the key in correcting so many running related injuries.  If you are participating in Spartan Races, Tough Mudder, Bone Frog or Savage Race,  I think this podcast may provide some food for thought.
