Improving Your Running Stamina

Whether you use it as a weight loss tool or you enjoy running as a hobby, there are a range of benefits that can be gained from making improvements to your stamina. After all, cardio endurance is important for those who intend to complete a marathon at some point in their life! Here at BookitZone, we want to help our reader progress at their own pace. Read on as we go through a few top tips that can help you improve your running stamina…

Interval Training

Used to help runners get the most out of their workout, interval training involves alternating periods of low and high intensity exercise. In fact, it is a great way to improve your stamina because it can aid cardiovascular capacity. In addition to this, it also changes up your routine which can make running feel like an exciting endeavour all over again; this is important because experts suggest that we are more likely to progress at something when we are enjoying ourselves.

Weight Training

Although it seems counterproductive for a runner, adding weight training to your routine can help increase your running economy. This means that the oxygen in your blood stream will be used much more efficiently when you run and therefore help you improve your stamina over time. This can either be done using free weights, weight machines or by carrying out cardio exercises like swimming, which also helps work upper body muscle groups.

Diet Alterations

For committed runners who want to see noticeable differences to their stamina and endurance, it is important to eat a well-balanced diet that is filled with protein, vitamins, calcium, fibre, carbohydrates and essential fats. After all, these are all needed in order to promote muscle retention and ensure that runners have enough energy to carry out their workout.

Here at BookitZone, we have a wide range of running events that are perfect for those looking to build on their endurance and stamina. After all, it takes a lot of dedication and sacrifice to build up the capabilities of a long-distance runner but it its possible with the right mindset.
