People think that in order to walk fast you have to take long strides, but that is not the case. In fact, long strides can cause you to come down hard on your feet with each step that you take. Rather than put yourself at risk for foot pain, think short strides instead.*
Your feet will roll forward faster if you take quick, short heel-to-toe steps. If you want to increase your walking pace, use short strides to avoid foot stress and pain.
