What is endurance?

Endurance is the ability to sustain physical activity for a prolonged period of time. It requires a combination of muscle strength and cardiovascular conditioning. When runners focus on improving their endurance through exercise, they are working to increase the amount of time they can stay active at a certain intensity level.

Whether you are a professional runner or run recreationally, better endurance can help you run faster and farther. You may even find that you enjoy running even more.

How can I improve my overall endurance?

Now is the best time to find a program that works toward your goals. Here are some running tips to get started:

  • Increase your intensity gradually: Start by incorporating short bursts of increased intensity into your workouts and build up from there.
  • Work on your technique: Improve the efficiency of your stride and form so you can move faster for longer periods of time.
  • Take rest days as needed: Give your body a break from intense exercise every once in a while so it can recover and rebuild strength.
