The key component to winning a race or just your running buddy on a friendly competition is your endurance. It’s essential whether you’ve been running for a few years or you are a beginner.
To increase your endurance, you need to know what you want to achieve from your running training as well as how you will do it.
Strength Training For Better Endurance
You will be a more efficient runner by doing strength-training. It teaches you how to deal with stress or fatigue at the brink of stopping running. It is the key to maintaining your running form which would imply better running efficiency.
However, always remember that a runner will never ever get endurance for running if he did not press through or undergo “strength training”.
While there are some runners who are a little bit skeptical about doing strength-training, by not doing it will slow them down. Strength-training is an efficient method of increasing your endurance in running.

Exercise and nutrition are closely linked, even tighter than you might think. Some say that nutrition can make up to 70 percent of the results. So it is essential to eat right if you want to achieve your goals.
Maintaining the body’s biological and physiological functions requires that we receive energy from carbohydrates, proteins, and fat. The need for power depends on the level of activity: what you train, how much, and at what intensity.
Engaging in an endurance event like a triathlon or marathon differs from shorter events or a trip to the gym. Before endurance exercise, have a meal that contains some protein and carbohydrates. It is good to have only moderate amounts of fat and fiber to avoid stomach problems during activity.
Eat a quality daily diet
