How to use the Stryd Footpath data
Your evaluation of your Stryd Footpath data should primarily be focused on identifying how your footpath changes across activities or during an activity. You should associate the context of your run to understand the cause of the changes and, then, determine if those changes are beneficial for your running goals.
Here are a few different ways you can leverage this data to enhance your run.
Injury: Track your recovery process by quantifying subtle changes in your footpath as you recover from an injury.
Fatigue: Monitor how and when you fatigue in and across your runs so you can tailor your training to combat fatigue.
Drills: Quantify and visualize the impact of your drills on your footpath to determine if they are providing the intended benefits.
Footwear: Observe how different shoe choices reshape your footpath and impact your running.
Performance: Visualize your footpath to determine personalized indicators of how your footpath changes as your performance transforms.

Keep in mind that your footpath is as individual as your fingerprint. The aim is to understand how to leverage the insights from the Stryd Footpath to further your own running ambitions, not to replicate the footpath patterns of others.
