I'd like to see more discussion of that point (which is only tangentially related to the original topic)... As far as I understand it describes a faster way to move the foot?
I think I see what that means, but I don't completely make the link with true times for two reasons:
- true times as defined by Silver should work even though the hand is faster than the foot
- though the foot might be kicked into place, the hip themselves must move forward for a real step to be completed. It seems that the duration of the hip translation is the limiting factor, not the speed of the foot
