Why hurdling is not a jump?
The hurdler no longer has any control over the lead leg, and has to wait for gravity to bring the leg back down to the track. Another problem that can cause gliding is the tendency to maintain the same upper-body posture while clearing the hurdle that one has established while sprinting.

Do you count strides between 300m and 400m hurdles?
Hurdlers who run both the 110’s/100’s and the 300’s/400’s will generally tend to want to lead with the leg they lead with in the sprint hurdles, even if the other lead leg is functional. For this reason, I feel it is essential that even those who alternate lead legs count their strides between hurdles, so that they know when they want to alternate.
