Hi chaps, I wonder if you can help me. The dictionary - Longman dictionary of contemporary english - defines a "step" in the following way:
"The movement you make when you put one foot in front of or behind the other when walking".
I wonder, could the very same definition be applied to running? In other words, could a step also be "The movement you make when you put one foot in front of or behind the other when running/jogging"? If not how would I refer to it?
thanks

    Difficult Interesting question, Antobbo:) ~ I think I'd call one of those a stride rather than a step.

    Mind you, I haven't run since about 1983:D
    I agree. Stride. And I haven't run since I competed in the "100 yard dash" (now we have a "100 meter sprint"). (And I was the fastest in the school district (1965 - 1966).
