... of Biologists Ltd 2016 Summary: Interlimb asymmetry changes the walk–run transition speed on a split-belt treadmill with speed or direction differences between legs; leg muscle activation (neuromuscular effort) predicts both novel and normal transition speeds. Human locomotion Gait transition...

... appears to decline. In this study, COT remained constant over 60 min when walking at the most efficient speed. In light of the long evolutionary history of human locomotion, it is perhaps unsurprising that humans can maintain the optimal speed for an extended period of time without detectable changes...
