Human Endurance Running Evolution Hunting
More Info: If you are fifty and asking this question, you should get the book "Running Past Fifty" by Richard Benyo. Not sure if it is still out there, as it was published in 1998 by Human Kinetics. Is it your speed or time or distance. Only very few keep their speed past 50. Distance and time endurance take longer to achieve and maintain. Rest is critical, recovery takes much longer.(63,Level I USAT coach) ...Read more
Which is better for endurance? I can either go running or cycling so which one would improve my endurance quicker?
Hello im lili. Why do I feel like i run out of air when im exercising (crossfit/running) and i just can't improve my endurance?
Slowly and over time: The best way to improve running endurance, as defined by your ability to keep going for a half hour, hour, two hours, three hours, and beyond, is to gradually build up at an easy pace from whereever you are at. Run at a pace where you can talk, supplement with gels on longer runs, and aim for 3-4 runs a week. Hal higdon has great programs on his website (free) for runners at all levels.

Would the use of creatine and weight training affect my cardio? I don't want to decrease my running endurance.
How can I get my endurance up for running? I can run a 1/2 mile straight now but i want to be able to run 3 miles easy by next month. Can I do this?
Yes: A healthy 17 yo should be able to run 3 miles. Run at least every other day. Increase the distance by 1/ 2 mile every 2 or 3 runs. When you increase to a mile don't expect to run at the same pace you run 1/2 mile- slow and steady is the way to go. As you get used to longer distances then you can gradually pick up the pace. Good luck! ...Read more
