Great Strides Doesn't seem to workFollow

I'm using great strides and it says the effect is active for 3 steps. Does it go away when it hits? Because it never holds for three steps. It seems dependant on what I do, but sometimes it disappears at one step and sometimes two. It's never made it 3 steps.

Am I reading this description wrong?

It seems to fire off when it gives it's double. Not sure if that's how it's supposed to work. Also, one time it gave me 58 HQ in one go.

I was at excellent, and then I did the 32 cost HQ update and it just jumped from 0 - 58 HQ.

Yeah, you are reading it wrong. As soon as you use a "touch" action it goes away. You have three actions to do that within.

Wait until you've stacked a few synths on inner strength, and then get an advanced synth to proc on excellent condition, and you fill the HQ bar. You start laughing like a giddy child.
