In cycling, cadence (or pedaling rate) is the number of revolutions of the crank per minute; roughly speaking, this is the rate at which a cyclist is pedaling/turning the pedals. Cadence is related to wheel speed, but is a distinct measurement.

In running, cadence (or stride rate) is the number of strikes per minute, for both feet.  This means that to see a single cadence metric, you need to divide cadence by 2

cadence     <returns cadence in revolutions for cycling, both feet strike for running>

Common Use Syntax (examples):

cadence       <returns cadence per record for selected time range>

 cadence/2       < return cadence per record, divided by 2 = time per minute a runner strikes each foot to the ground>

Common examples:

Cadence can be used both as summary data at the athlete level, or as actual tracked data at the workout level.  Can be viewed in both report and chart formats.
