O.k. need some help on something I know nothing about, Running.

I need to build up some distance or I guess endurance. I ran the other night and "marked" in my head how far I went. So today went out to try and beat my last mark, and did beat it by quite a bit.

Do you think this approach will work?

Basically running every other day and trying to beat my previous mark.

Also any supps that help in endurance?


BTW I'm still doing my other training and havent missed any days just have not logged it.

That's one way to do it. For me, I prefer to run the same distance every time, and work to continually finish faster. Once I'm satisfied, I increase the distance. That's better for me because being so heavy combined with all the squatting, my joints aren't up to par. So I like to combine jogging, power walking, and sprints in a single 3 mile session. Running in a neighborhood with long streets, it's easy to think to myself to jog the straightaways, power walk the curves.

Beta Alanine as of now is getting very positive results for it's effectiveness on increased endurance. Taken 4 times a day in small divided doses to build up your body stores. I'll be getting this next week so I'll keep everyone posted. Bring on the skin tingling!

It depends on what your goals are joker, I would assume you dont want to run marathons, you just want to keep bodyfat down, and keep your cardio vascular endurance up correct?

If thats your overall goal, then I would say doing something like what 0311 suggested would be good. going out everytime and trying to go a little bit further, will eventually result in you running for 3hrs every other day, and I dont think thats really what your looking for. so increase intensity/speed, once your comfortable with your overall distance. if that makes sense.

Well I'm actually trying to work up to a 1.5 miles. In the next 2 weeks. But no I wouldnt be interested in ever doing a marathon.

Joker, do you have access to a track? The reason I ask is a track can help a lot with working up to a good 1.5 mile or 2 mile run. One technique often used to improve speed and endurance is interval training. On a track an easy example would be to jog/walk the straightaways and sprint the curves. Doing this for 1.5 miles will not only give you one hell of a workout but will get you faster and give you more endurance. Another option (if the track is a no go) is to jog/walk for a certain time, say 2 minutes, sprint for 1 minute and alternate for your 1.5 to 2 miles. This type of training knocked off about 3 minutes from my 1.5 mile run in about 4 weeks. Just an idea.
